Machine Learning for Communications and Networking Symposium (co-located with ICNC 2020)

26 July 2019 all-day

Machine Learning for Communications and Networking (MLCN) Symposium
International Conference on Computing, Networking and Communications (ICNC 2020).
Big Island, Hawaii, USA, February 17-20, 2020

Machine learning has shown significant potentials in facilitating human-centered cognitive systems, including image/video recognition, natural language and text analysis, finance, economics, and market analysis, medical diagnostics, robotics and autonomous vehicle, computational biology, cyber security, among others. The same potential can be expressed to enable the design and operations of complex communication and networking systems that connect massive number of users with diversified quality of service requirements. The emerging big data analytics, cloud/edge computing, software defined networking, and other relevant technologies provide opportunities for applying machine learning in communication and networking systems by studying the behaviors of these systems and further improving their performance and manageability. With machine learning, communication and networking systems can become cognizant, implementing agile reconfiguration and optimization processes based on measured data. As a result, the users can receive a better service, as enabled by the learning of the operating network environment and by the continuous adaptation of communication and network parameters as the observed conditions evolve.

The Machine Learning for Communication and Networking (MLCN) Symposium will focus on topics related to all aspects of machine learning applied to communication and networking systems. This symposium seeks original unpublished papers focusing on theoretical analysis, algorithm/protocol design,
novel system architectures, experimental studies, emerging applications, standardizations, testbeds, etc. The ultimate goal of this symposium is to bring together and disseminate the latest developments and technical solutions concerning all facets of the broad area of machine learning for communication and networking systems, including emerging intelligent and/or self-aware communications and networking technologies to improve network resource utilization and optimization, and make future communication
and networking systems intelligent, autonomous, efficient, and trustworthy. The ICNC’20 Machine Learning for Communication and Networking (MLCN) symposium calls for original, previously unpublished papers in the topics including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Machine learning for communication and network operation and control
