It is for us a great pleasure to welcome you to the Sixth International ICST Conference on Mobile Networks and Management (MONAMI) held in Würzburg, Germany on 22-24 September 2014. MONAMI 2014 aims at bringing together leading researchers from around the world to address and discuss current challenges in the area of Mobile Network Management.

The program of this year includes 21 paper presentations from the regular track which were selected after a stringent peer-review process which had, at least, 3 different reviews for most of the papers; furthermore there is a co-located workshop on Enhanced Living Environments (ELEMENT), featuring 10 papers, and organized in the framework of the ICT COST Action IC1303, Algorithms, Architectures and Platforms for Enhanced Living Environments (AAPELE). MONAMI 2014 will also feature high-level keynote speakers: Dirk Kutscher of NEC Europe Ltd. with the talk entitled “From Virtualization to Network and Service Programmability -- A Research Agenda for 5G Networks”, and Klaus Moessner of University of Surrey, with the keynote “Networks in times of virtualization”. In addition, the conference will start with a tutorial on “SDN Experimentation Facilities and Tools”, organized by Kostas Pentikousis, Umar Toseef (EICT GmbH), Philip Wette and Martin Dräxler (University of Paderborn). This year, MONAMI also includes a special session on SDN and NFV, organized by Wolfgang Kellerer (Technische Universität München) and Marco Hoffmann (Nokia) as well as a Panel on Cloudification organized by Andreas Mäder (NEC Europe Ltd).

Würzburg is the capital of the administrative district Lower and the center of Germany's Franconia Wine Growing Region. In addition to fine wines and restaurants, it also offers ample opportunities to visit historic art and architecture spanning the Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque and Rococo periods. Famous citizens include the sculpturer and wood craver Tilman Riemenschneider, the architect Balthasar Neumann, who designed the Residenz Palace, or Wilhelm Röntgen, who discovered the X-rays. Würzburg's major attractions are the Marienberg Fortress and the Residenz, as well as the historical town center, a visit at Käppele, the outdoor cafes, and courtyard restaurants. The city also has an excellent nightlife with great diversity in entertainment offerings. We hope that in addition to the fruitful participation in the conference you will have the opportunity to sample some of the local attractions and learn more about Würzburg and its history.

We are delighted to welcome you to Würzburg and we hope you will enjoy both the conference and your time here!
