1st workshop on Autonomous Network Management in 5G and beyond systems (ANMS 2022)

Website: https://h2020daemon.eu/workshop-ansm-2022/

Submit papers at: https://jems.sbc.org.br/home.cgi?c=4018

New networking systems aim to be fully Autonomous Networks (ANs) with management capabilities such as self-configuration, self-healing, self-optimizing, and self-evolving, aspects that today’s networks do not support as their management is mainly manual with some automated assistance. Artificial Intelligence (AI) (and more precisely Machine Learning (ML)) algorithms are promising to empower the new generation of intelligent decision engines that present self-dynamic capabilities to fully realize ANs. ANMS workshop focuses on novel research in AI-based and hybrid approaches (AI + non-AI) algorithms for AN management (closed-loop control) and Framework, algorithms, techniques, and tools to build and support AI-based solutions for ANs.

1st International Workshop on Technologies for Network Twins (TNT 2022)

Website: https://sites.google.com/view/tnt-2022/home

Submit papers at: https://jems.sbc.org.br/home.cgi?c=4020

Digital twins provide virtual and real-time representations of physical networks and empower network designers and operators to achieve simplified, automatic, evidence-driven, and resilient full life-cycle operation and maintenance. Digital twin networking has seen a continuous and rising interest from the research, engineering, and operational communities in recent years, with proposals on base technologies, architectures, and practical implementations. TNT will explore the duality created by i) using digital twin technologies to enable new ways of managing and operating networks and digital infrastructures and ii) the challenges emerging from the management of large-scale digital twins requiring innovative forms of networked systems management. Federation, data fusion, interoperability, and integrability of heterogeneous network twins in multi-provider, multi-operator and multi-domains/multi-applications environments will become increasingly important considerations to allow digital twin technologies to deliver their full potential and value across all industries.

2nd International workshop on “Fully-Flexible Internet Architectures and Protocols for the Next-Generation Tactile Internet” (FlexNGIA 2022)

Website: https://www.flexngia.net/workshop-flexngia-2022

Submit papers at: https://jems.sbc.org.br/home.cgi?c=4021

The rise of edge, Cloud and in-network computing and the proliferation of AI solutions in networking  are  promoting  the development of innovative applications like virtual/augmented reality, telepresence, autonomous systems, remotely controlled robotics and tactile applications, promising to revolutionize health-care, transportation, industry, agriculture, society and culture. To deploy such applications and  to  comply  with  their  requirements,  there is a need for new Internet architectures and protocols allowing a  Tactile  Internet  that  combines  ultra  low latency with extremely high availability,  reliability  and  security. T . Such novel architectures and protocols are embodied in several initiatives like FlexNGIA (https://www.FlexNGIA.net) or projects like Teraflow (https://www.teraflow-h2020.eu). This workshop has the purpose of investigating how to rethink the current  Internet and to devise new architectures and protocols by efficiently harnessing recent technological advances in virtualization, network softwarization, NFV/SDN, and Data plane programmability.

3rd International workshop on Graph-based network Security (GraSec 2022)

Website: https://grasec.uni.lu/

Submit papers at: https://jems.sbc.org.br/home.cgi?c=4022

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.

The Internet of Things (IoT) emerges as a major architectural paradigm for achieving machine-to-machine (M2M) communication. Managing IoT-based systems is complex and exciting. Though being an evolution from classical management,  managing IoT things is still disruptive as classical assumptions  about connectivity, compute resources, or usage patterns do not hold anymore. The manage-IoT workshop focuses on management  methodologies for the Internet of Things, including resource, data,  service, and security management.

Web site: http://comsys.ovgu.de/TCoNS.html

Submit papers at: https://jems.sbc.org.br/home.cgi?c=4027

 

The Internet of Things (IoT) and related future networking concepts promise the ubiquitous availability of data. In the near future, service-oriented interaction will become part of IoT design principles, forming a new type of emergent behavior. New methods, models, and algorithms are necessary in order to ensure functionality, resiliency, and security. The workshop addresses current research related to the implementation and realization of future IoT applications and systems. Particular focus is put on concepts, tools, and the toolchains that are required for this endeavor. Furthermore, flexible right management, capability and performance profiles, and request evaluation for dynamically composed IoT settings will be targeted. We want to discuss how to realize abstract representations of these aspects in order to automatically react to adapted requests, changed network configurations, or system states.
