4th IEEE/IFIP International Workshop on Analytics for Network and Service Management

When:
20 November 2018 all-day
2018-11-20T00:00:00-05:00
2018-11-21T00:00:00-05:00

The 4th IEEE/IFIP International Workshop on Analytics for Network and Service Management (AnNet 2019) will be held in conjunction with the IFIP/IEEE International Symposium on Integrated Network Management (IM) in Washington DC, USA on April 8, 2019.

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.

AnNet 2019 will include original full-paper presentations, a keynote, and short-paper sessions. The workshop attendees will be stimulated to participate in interesting discussions. Short papers describing late-breaking advances and work-in-progress reports from ongoing research and experimental work are also welcome.

SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS

Paper submissions must present original, unpublished research or experiences. Only original papers that have not been published or submitted for publication elsewhere can be submitted. Each submission must be written in English, accompanied by a 75 to 200 words abstract that clearly outlines the scope and contributions of the paper. There is a length limitation of 6 pages (including title, abstract, all figures, tables, and references) for regular papers, and 4 pages for short papers describing work in progress. Submissions must be in IEEE 2-column style. Self-plagiarised papers will be rejected without further review. Authors should submit their papers via the JEMS system:
