It’s been an excellent growth in recent years for the NOMS community. A lot of new and challenging research and developments have been on-going worldwide, including Artificial Intelligence, 5G networks, software defined infrastructures, open source networking, IoT, not to mention the 4th industrial revolution. We have set the main theme to “Management in the Age of Softwarization and Artificial Intelligence” for this year to emphasize the strong demands for softwarization, digitalization, as well as AI-driven management of the more and more complex network and service environments.
