IEEE/IFIP Network Operations and Management Symposium
8-12 May 2023 // Miami, FL // USA
Integrated Management Towards Resilient Networks and Services
IEEE/IFIP NOMS 2023 - CALL FOR WORKSHOP PAPERS
The 36th IEEE/IFIP Network Operations and Management Symposium (NOMS 2023) will be held on 8-12 May 2023 in Miami, FL/USA. Held in every even-numbered year since 1988 with its sister conference IFIP/IEEE International Symposium on Integrated Network Management (IM), the 2023 edition is the first ever taking place on an odd-numbered year bringing together the best of both outstanding conferences, a great achievement for the network management community. As the primary IEEE Communications Society’s forum for technical exchange on management of information and communication technology NOMS focuses on research, development, integration, deployment, standards, service provisioning, and user communities.
NOMS 2023 will feature the following 8 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: Integrated Management Towards Resilient Networks and Services.
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 the JEMS conference management system.
Important Dates for all NOMS 2023 Workshops
- Paper Submission Deadline: January 15, 2023
- Notification of Acceptance: March 1st, 2023
- Camera-ready submission: March 10, 2023
2nd International Workshop on Autonomous Network Management in 5G and Beyond Systems (ANMS 2023)
Submit papers at: https://jems3.sbc.org.br/noms_anms2023
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.
8th IEEE/IFIP International Workshop On Analytics For Network And Service Management (ANNET 2023)
Submit papers at: https://jems3.sbc.org.br/noms_annet2023
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.
3rd 3rd IEEE/IFIP International workshop on the “Fully-Flexible Internet Architectures and Protocols for the Next-Generation Internet” (FlexNGIA 2023)
Submit papers at: https://jems3.sbc.org.br/noms_flexngia2023
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. 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.
2nd IEEE/IFIP International Intelligence Provisioning for Network and Service Management in Softwarized Networks (IPSN 2023)
Submit papers at: https://jems3.sbc.org.br/noms_ipsn2023
The main goal of IPSN Workshop is to present state-of-the-art research results and experience reports in the area of AI/ML for network management on softwarized networks, addressing topics such as artificial intelligence techniques and models for network and service management in softwarized networks; smart service orchestration, training process at the constrained edge, dynamic Service Function Chaining, Intent and policy based management, centralized vs distributed control of SDN/NFV based networks, analytics and big data approaches, knowledge creation and decision making. This workshop offers a timely venue for researchers and industry partners to present and discuss their latest results in the application of network intelligence to the management of softwarized networks.
6th International Workshop on Intelligent Transportation and Autonomous Vehicles Technologies (ITAVT 2023)
Submit papers at: https://jems3.sbc.org.br/noms_itavt2023
The aim of the ITAVT workshop is to bring together engineers, researchers, and practitioners interested in the advances and applications in the field of intelligent transportation and autonomous vehicle technology. Participants are invited to present and discuss recent developments and challenges in ITAVT 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.
3rd IEEE/IFIP International Workshop on Internet of Things Management (MANAGE-IOT 2023)
Submit papers at: https://jems3.sbc.org.br/noms_manage-iot2023
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.
4th Workshop on Management for Industry 5.0 (MFI5.0 2023)
Submit papers at: https://jems3.sbc.org.br/noms_mfi50_2023
The transition from ISA-95 to RAMI4.0/IIRA based automation for production automation in Industry 4.0 is ongoing. This includes the integration of legacy OT with emerging IT technologies. Another aspect is automation/digitalization across value networks involving a multitude of stakeholders in complex relationships. This organically leads to the consideration of multiple factors, firstly the human in the loop i.e. industry 5.0, and therefore dependencies like privacy, security and connectivity. Consequently, Management for Industry 5.0 covers three thematic themes: (1) connectivity, infrastructure, and security, (2) cyber-physical systems/system-of-systems, and (3) the human in the loop.
2nd IEEE/IFIP International Workshop on Technologies for Network Twins (TNT 2023)
Submit papers at: https://jems3.sbc.org.br/noms_tnt2023
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.
