2022 SysOpt Workshop Banner

Free & Virtual | 19-20 September 2022

   Register Today   


This workshop will explore current technological advancements impacting systems such as autonomic/autonomous networking, Artificial Intelligence (AI) approaches for Autonomics, related industry standards, industrial deployment of autonomics paradigms, e.g. Self-organizing Networks (SON) for radio access networks, autonomics use cases, as well as associated research challenges. The objective of this workshop is to bring together experts from the globe and create a joint platform for information exchanges, presentation of results, and fruitful discussions to identify gaps and future directions for the IEEE FNI Systems Optimization Working Group.

If you do not have an EDAS account, create one here.
Deadline: 7 May 2022
Each proposal (maximum 2 pages) must include:

  • Title and Abstract
  • Specific track (see descriptions below): Standards/Architecture, Industry Applications, Research Challenges
  • A short biography (no more than 200 words) of each speaker

An explanation of the motivation, background, objective, description of the challenges to be covered, relevance, and timeliness
The proposal will be reviewed based on its relevance, the topic’s importance to the workshop, and the diversity it offers in terms of the problem, proposed solution, and evaluation approach.

Track Descriptions
Standards & Architecture
A key area of future Systems Optimization is the ability for autonomic/autonomous systems to communicate information such as policy, intent and performance indicators in both hierarchical and peer-to-peer relationships. Various standards bodies such as TMForum, ETSI and O-RAN have been looking into standardization of interfaces for such purposes. IEEE Systems Optimization Working Group is calling presenters to provide and share insights around progress and gaps in inter-system interface standards and architectures as relevant to systems optimization for 5G and beyond.

Industry Applications
In the Industry Applications track, we invite speakers to discuss the industrial deployments of autonomic/autonomous systems in networks and their adoption by stakeholders in the value chain, such as operators, vendors, integrators, and the like. The objective of this track is to understand stakeholders' concerns, use cases and alternatives for systems optimization in 5G and beyond networks. We encourage contributors to share their goals and experiences in this area.

Research Challenges
In the research topic area, the workshop seeks to expand discussions into newer and future topics related to future networks systems optimization. The goal of this track is to investigate innovative and advanced approaches to improve optimization in 5G and future networks using techniques such as distributed artificial intelligence/machine learning, and challenges to their application to future network problems.
