Call For Papers

The First International Workshop on Network Meets Intelligent Computations (NMIC)

Organized in conjunction with The 39th IEEE International Conference on Distributed Computing Systems (ICDCS 2019), 7 July - 10 July 2019, Dallas, Texas, USA

The new computation technologies, such as big data analytics, modern machine learning technology, artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain, and security processing, have the great potential to be embedded into network to enable it to be intelligent and trustworthy. On the other hand, Information-Centric Networking (ICN), software-defined network (SDN), network function virtualization (NFV), network slicing, and data center network have emerged as the novel networking paradigms for fast and efficient delivering and retrieving data. Against this backdrop, there is a strong trend to move the computations from the cloud to not only the edges but also the resource-sufficient networking nodes, which triggers the convergence between the emerging networking concepts and the new computation technologies.

The ultimate goals for networking researches include intelligence, trust, and efficiency, which can be enhanced by or benefit for the intelligent computations. There are many open challenges for the emerging network concepts to meet the intelligent computations: what computations should be embedded; which node should be enforced with the computation; how can the computations, such as big data analytics, security, AI, machine learning, blockchain, be seamlessly embedded into the network and enable it to be efficient, trustworthy and accountable; how to fast locate the required and suitable computation nodes; how to efficiently transfer data through series of computation nodes; how to efficiently collect and process the big networking data; how to design networking architectures and protocols to easily support the efficient and diverse computations; how to achieve ultra-low latency communications with distributed computations; and how to migrate from the Internet to the computation-enabled network.

The NMIC workshop 2019 solicits the papers that address the technical challenges and applications of the distributed computations for networking, the intelligent computations supported by the novel networking technologies, and the enforcement of series of computations. The areas of interests include, but are not limited to, the following:

Networking architecture and protocols for integrating caching, computation, and communications
Machine learning, data mining and big data analytics in networking
In-network computation for future networks, inter-data center networking and 5G
Information-centric networking with/for computations
Intelligent Internet edge integrating edge, fog, and mobile edge computing with networking
Intelligent service function/computation chaining
Security, privacy, trust, accountability for/with intelligent computation networking
Collection and processing for big network data
Distributed computations for network anomaly detection and security
Integrating Blockchain with networking
Network function virtualization, software-defined network, and network slicing for distributed computations
Networking computations for big data, streaming, IoT, and AR/VR
In-network data computations for network measurement and management
Distributed artificial intelligence with/for networking
Data modelling and applications of networking
Big data networking in healthcare, V2V, smart cities, industry and other applications

Selected papers will be recommended to EURASIP Journal on Wireless Communications and Networking or IEEE Network Magazine for potential publications.
