IEEE/IFIP Network Operations and Management Symposium
25-29 April 2022 // Budapest, Hungary
Network and Service Management in the Era of Cloudification, Softwarization and Artificial Intelligence

Call for Workshop Proposals

The 18th IEEE/IFIP Network Operations and Management Symposium
(NOMS 2022) will be held on 25-29 April 2022 in Budapest, Hungary.
Held in even-numbered years since 1988, NOMS 2022 will follow the
tradition of 34 years 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,
deployment, standards, service provisioning, and user communities.

NOMS 2022 will feature several workshops to further disseminate fine-tuned
research that is organized around the main conference theme: Network and
Service Management in the Era of Cloudification, Softwarization and
Artificial Intelligence.

IEEE/IFIP NOMS 2022 invites proposals for one-day or half-day
workshops, which will be held before or immediately after the
main NOMS 2022 technical program. The primary purpose of the NOMS
2022 Workshops is to provide a forum for research, development,
integration, deployment, standards, service provisioning, and user
communities, also investigating the opportunities and challenges of
AI for network and service management.

NOMS 2022 Workshops are expected to focus on a range of novel and
compelling research avenues complementing or in-depth covering the topics
of the main conference, such as intelligent and hyper-connected environments,
virtualization and in general, softwarization of networking technologies, newly
emerging and potentially challenging topics on advanced services and
applications converged network operations, management and control, seamless,
secure services in future Internet also embedding cyber-physical systems.
