The Latin American Network Operations and Management Symposium (LANOMS) has been the main forum for discussing network and services management in Latin America since 1999, when the first LANOMS came to life. LANOMS 2007, held in Petropolis, Brazil, during September 10–12, was the fifth in a series of highly successful biennial symposiums [1, 2, 3, 4] on the field. For the first time LANOMS was jointly organized with the Latin American Autonomic Computing Symposium (LAACS 2007).

The technical program was organized as a single track to stimulate discussions and interactions among attendees. The LANOMS 2007 program was composed of invited speeches, technical sessions, invited paper sessions, short paper session, as well as tutorials presented by distinguished researchers and practitioners.

Thirteen full papers were accepted for publication. In addition, authors of five submissions were invited to publish their work as short papers and also to present them in a special technical session....

We gratefully acknowledge the hard work of the Technical Program and Organizing Committees in the process of selecting the papers and helping to shape the program and activities. We thank the authors for the high quality of their contributions and our distinguished invited speakers for their invaluable talks. Finally, we show gratitude to our patrons: Coordination for Improvement of Superior Level Personnel (CAAPES) and LNCC. Special thanks to the secretariat from LNCC by the services provided in all logistics.
