IEEE/IFIP Network Operations and Management Symposium
20-24 April 2020 // Budapest, Hungary
Management in the Age of Softwarization and Artificial Intelligence

Call for Workshop Papers

The 17th IEEE/IFIP Network Operations and Management Symposium (NOMS 2020) will be held on 20-24 April 2020 in Budapest, Hungary. Held in even-numbered years since 1988, NOMS 2020 will follow the 32 years tradition of NOMS and IM as the primary IEEE Communications Society's forum for technical exchange on management of information and communication technology focusing on research, development, integration, standards, service provisioning, and user communities.

NOMS 2020 will feature the following 6 co-located workshops, which will be held immediately prior or after the main Technical Program, to further disseminate fine-tuned research, and that are organized around the main conference theme: Management in the Age of Softwarization and Artificial Intelligence.

Prospective authors are invited to check the website of each workshop to know about the specific scope and topics, as well as for the procedures for submitting contributions through JEMS.

5th International Workshop on Analytics for Network and Service Management (AnNet 2020)

Web site | Submit papers here

AnNet aims to present research and experience results in data analytics and machine learning for network and service management. Approaches such as statistical analysis, data mining and machine learning are promising to harness the immense stream of operational data and to improve operations and management of IT systems and networks.

6th Workshop on Security for Emerging Distributed Network Technologies (DISSECT 2020)

Web site | Submit papers here

DISSECT will offer a venue for bringing together students, researchers, and professionals from academia and industry sharing common interest on security challenges related to the design and management of the distributed networks and infrastructures. DISSECT is intended to (1) discussing these challenges as well as future trends on security management, (2) presenting and discussing work-in-progress security-related research on cutting-edge technologies, and (3) strengthening collaboration and research ties among peers.

1st International workshop on Graph-based network Security (GraSec 2020)

Web site | Submit papers here

Graph-based modeling offers the advantage of understanding complex attacks and determining the root cause of an attack. However, existing graph mining tools for anomaly detection over streaming events are not adapted for cyber-security problems while the corresponding data continuously appears in the form of complex graphs. The main goal of GraSec is to present research and experience results in graph applications on network and cybersecurity as well as the defensive and offensive tools.

3rd International Workshop on Intelligent Transportation and Connected Vehicles Technologies (ITCVT 2020)

Web site | Submit papers here

The aim of the ITCVT workshop is to bring together engineers, researchers, and practitioners interested in the advances and applications in the field of intelligent transportation and vehicle technology. Participants are invited to present and discuss recent developments and challenges in ITCVT systems. This workshop focuses on innovative applications, tools and frameworks in all technology areas related to connected vehicles in the context of smart cities and other application domains.

1st Workshop on Management for Industry 4.0

Web site | Submit papers here

The Industry 4.0 revolution presents a multitude of management related challenges including the transition from ISA-95 to RAMI4.0/IIRA based automation for production automation, the integration of legacy OT with emerging IT technologies, the automation/digitalisation across value networks involving a multitude of stakeholders in complex relationships, and the formation of large to very large System of Systems (SoS). This workshop will focus on a number of core engineering and management issues for Industry 4.0, associated theory, architectures, frameworks, security and experimental experience.

5th International Workshop on Orchestration for Software Defined Infrastructures (O4SDI 2020)

Web site | Submit papers here

The O4SDI workshop addresses the challenges of facilitating orchestration and programmability of generalized virtual functions in Software Defined Infrastructures (SDI), enabling cloud and network providers to deploy integrated services across different resource domains. Orchestration mechanisms will facilitate the live deployment and lifecycle management of these virtual elements, at the application level, the server level, and the network level within a single domain and across multiple domains, ultimately enabling dynamic establishment of generalized virtual functions chains, according to service requirements.
