Workshop on Sustainable networking through MachIne Learning and Internet of thINGs

The First Workshop on Sustainable networking through MachIne Learning and Internet of thiNGs (SMILING 2019)

in conjunction with IEEE INFOCOM 2019
April 29 – May 2, 2019, Paris, France




Sustainability is a key challenge of the digitalized world and, while technologies for the connected world evolve, sustainability calls for new paradigms and solutions. The research in the field of sustainable networking has been vibrant for some years and now new frontiers in this topic are emerging. In the application domain, this is the IoT momentum and the research is boosted by several paradigms, among which are the Smart City, 5G and Industry 4.0. When thousands or millions or devices will be deployed, IoT systems will need an architecture lasting in time, saving the device batteries and reducing the cumulative energy cost for running the system and the applications. In the methodological domain, planning, developing and managing complex and massive systems of devices, that might also be simple as in the IoT case, Machine Learning (ML) is emerging as the technology of choice.

This workshop intends to stimulate discussion about these new frontiers of sustainable networking. The workshop does not aim at covering the very vast range of applications of ML in networking, or IoT technologies, but focuses on tools, technologies, paradigms and solutions that target network sustainability. These include smart resource allocation choices over multi-dimensional decision spaces, the prediction of traffic, channel conditions, energy that can be harvested from the environment, energy savings can be enabled on the different system and operation levels.
