2nd Workshop on Advances in Network Optimization and Management (ANOM) – Call For Papers

Software defined networking (SDN) provides network communities with innovative networking ideas, while the emerging 5G wireless networks ensure that various contemporary wireless applications can be timely and satisfactorily served  anytime and anywhere. Today, the rapidly developing SDN and 5G networks bring forth many challenges for network optimization and management. In particular, traditional methods are either unavailable or inoperative for these new networking paradigms. Therefore, new advances in  network optimization and management are needed urgently in order to maintain normal operations of SDN and 5G networks.

This workshop aims to identify  challenges and solicit novel solutions in network optimization and management for the new SDN and 5G networking paradigms. Specifically, we invite original contributions that envision future directions of network optimization and management. We welcome high quality papers containing the latest theoretical and/or experimental results. Researchers and engineers from both academia and industry are welcome to attend the workshop for discussions and idea sharing.

The topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Optimization and modeling for  SDN/5G
  • Operation and management for SDN/5G
  • Big data driven optimization and management technologies for SDN/5G
  • Intelligent optimization, operation, and management for communications
  • Network service management for new networking paradigms
  • Advanced modeling and management theory and methods for network traffic
  • Network traffic characteristics for SDN/5G
  • Network traffic model and characteristics for SDN/5G
  • Estimation and prediction approaches for network traffic
  • Simulation techniques for network optimization and management
  • Machine Learning techniques for network optimization and management
  • Simulation tools and software for network optimization and management
  • Applications based on network optimization and management
  • Resource allocation/service management/security analysis/performance analysis for intelligent communications networks
  • Artificial intelligence and deep-learning based approaches for network optimization and management
  • Optimization and management in mobile edge computing and fog computing and cloud computing
  • Measurement and evaluation in network optimization and management
  • Optimization and management in Satellite/aerial/terrestrial communications networks
  • Network planning and scheduling for intelligent communications networks
