IEEE International Conference on Computer Communications
29 April - 2 May 2019 // Paris, France

Workshop on Network Intelligence

The 2nd International Workshop on Network Intelligence (NI 2019)

Machine Learning for Networking

in conjunction with IEEE INFOCOM 2019

29 April – 2 May 2019 – Paris, France

Technically Sponsored by IEEE Communications Society, Technical Committee on Cognitive Networking, Technical Committee on Big Data, IEEE Network Intelligence Emerging Technologies initiative




Network Intelligence considers the embedding of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in future networks to fasten service delivery and operations, leverage Quality of Experience (QoE) and guarantee service availability, also allowing better agility, resiliency, faster customization and security. This concept is envisioned as mandatory to manage, pilot and operate the forthcoming network built upon SDN, NFV and cloud.

The main goal of the Network Intelligence Workshop is to present state-of-the-art research results and experience reports in the area of network intelligence, addressing topics such as artificial intelligence techniques and models for network and service management; smart service orchestration and delivery, 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 Network Intelligence, and specifically “Machine Learning for Networking”. Machine learning in particular perfectly matches the complex, dynamic and time-varying nature of today’s networking systems.

Authors of the top-ranked papers accepted for publication in the NI 2019 workshop proceedings will be invited to submit an extended version of their papers to the IEEE Transactions on Network and Service Management (TNSM) journal.
