IEEE Transactions on Network and Service Management

Special Issue on Big Data Analytics for Management


(Submissions due: 15 November 2015)


IEEE Transactions on Network and Service Management (IEEE TNSM) is a
premier journal for timely publication of archival research on the
management of networks, systems, services and applications. This special
issue will focus on “Big Data Analytics for Management,” presenting recent,
emerging approaches and technical solutions that can exploit Big Data and
analytics in management solutions. Cloud and network analytics can harness
the immense stream of operational data from clouds and networks, and can
perform analytics processing to improve reliability, configuration,
performance, and security management. In particular, we see a growing trend
towards using statistical analysis and machine learning as an engineering
method to improve operations and management of IT systems and networks. We
welcome submissions addressing the underlying challenges of using Big Data
analytics for management and presenting novel theoretical or
experimentation results. Survey papers that offer a perspective on related
work and identify key challenges for future research will be considered as

Topics of Interest

Topics of interest for this special issue include, but are not limited, to
the following:

• Cloud and network analytics
• Predictive analytics and real-time analytics
• Monitoring and measurements for management
• Harnessing social data for management
• Analyzing and storing logs and operational data for management tasks
• Analytics for traffic classification, intrusion detection, failure
detection, root-cause analysis, service quality assurance, IT service
management, storage resource management, etc.
• Data centric management of clouds and software defined networks
• Data centric management of virtualized infrastructure and data center
• Data centric management of Internet of Things and cyber-physical systems
• Data mining, statistical modeling, and machine learning for management
