Management in the Age of Softwarization and Artificial Intelligence

Call for Panel Proposals

The IEEE/IFIP NOMS 2020 symposium will feature a number of panel discussions. Panels offer the great opportunity for experts to discuss and engage with the audience on leading-edge and frontier topics related to Network, Service, Cyber, and System Management. NOMS community has been involved with many on-going research and developments including Artificial Intelligence, 5G networks, software defined infrastructures, open source networking, and Internet of Things. The main theme of the conference is set to “Management in the Age of Softwarization and Artificial Intelligence” to emphasize the strong demands for softwarization, digitalization, as well as AI-driven management of the more complex network and service environments.

Accordingly, NOMS 2020 solicits proposals and ideas for panels related to the main theme of the conference and invite diverse perspectives and challenging viewpoints. A panel proposal should have the following structure:

  1. Brief description of the topic
  2. Why it will be of interest to the audience
  3. Short bio of the panel moderator
  4. Proposals for potential panelists with bios
  5. Short description of the structure of the proposed panel

We encourage a panel format with short opening statements leaving enough room for lively discussions with the audience. If needed, the Organizing Committee can assist with the identification of additional panel members.

All proposals will be evaluated by the NOMS 2020 Organizing Committee. If you are interested in organizing a panel, please send your proposals in a PDF file to the two Co-Chairs.
