Management in the Age of Softwarization and Artificial Intelligence

Call for Workshops Proposals

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 a number of workshops to further disseminate fine-tuned research, that are organized around the main conference theme: Management in the Age of Softwarization and Artificial Intelligence.

IEEE/IFIP NOMS 2020 invites proposals for one-day or half-day workshops, which will be held prior or immediately after the main NOMS 2020 Technical Program. The main purpose of the NOMS 2020 Workshops is to provide a forum for evaluating new frontiers in research, development, integration, standards, advance service provisioning, and user communities addressing smart and hyper-connected environments, virtualization, programmability in native softwarization of networking technologies. All workshops would need to complement the main conference theme and topics that include management of 5G and Beyopnd Networks, Fixed and Mobile Networks and Services, Clouds, Vertical Eco-Systems, Converged network operations and seamless secure services.
