*The First International Workshop on **Network Meets Intelligent 
Computations (**NMIC)*



Organized in conjunction with

    *The 39th IEEE International Conference on Distributed Computing
    Systems (ICDCS 2019), **7****July** - **10****July** 2019, Dallas,
    Texas, USA*

The new computation technologies, such as big data analytics, modern 
machine learning technology, artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain, 
and security processing, have the great potential to be embedded into 
network to enable it to be intelligent and trustworthy. On the other 
hand, Information-Centric Networking (ICN), software-defined network 
(SDN), network function virtualization (NFV), network slicing, and data 
center network have emerged as the novel networking paradigms for fast 
and efficient delivering and retrieving data. Against this backdrop, 
there is a strong trend to move the computations from the cloud to not 
only the edges but also the resource-sufficient networking nodes, which 
triggers the convergence between the emerging networking concepts and 
the new computation technologies.

The ultimate goals for networking researches include intelligence, 
trust, and efficiency, which can be enhanced by or benefit for the 
intelligent computations. There are many open challenges for the 
emerging network concepts to meet the intelligent computations: what 
computations should be embedded; which node should be enforced with the 
computation; how can the computations, such as big data analytics, 
security, AI, machine learning, blockchain, be seamlessly embedded into 
the network and enable it to be efficient, trustworthy and accountable; 
how to fast locate the required and suitable computation nodes; how to 
efficiently transfer data through series of computation nodes; how to 
efficiently collect and process the big networking data; how to design 
networking architectures and protocols to easily support the efficient 
and diverse computations; how to achieve ultra-low latency 
communications with distributed computations; and how to migrate from 
the Internet to the computation-enabled network.

The NMIC workshop 2019 solicits the papers that address the technical 
challenges and applications of the distributed computations for 
networking, the intelligent computations supported by the novel 
networking technologies, and the enforcement of series of computations. 
The areas of interests include, but are not limited to, the following:

  * Networking architecture and protocols for integrating caching,
    computation, and communications
  * Machine learning, data mining and big data analytics in networking
  * In-network computation for future networks, inter-data center
    networking and 5G
  * Information-centric networking with/for computations
  * Intelligent Internet edge integrating edge, fog, and mobile edge
    computing with networking
  * Intelligent service function/computation chaining
  * Security, privacy, trust, accountability for/with intelligent
    computation networking
  * Collection and processing for big network data
  * Distributed computations for network anomaly detection and security
  * Integrating Blockchain with networking
  * Network function virtualization, software-defined network, and
    network slicing for distributed computations
  * Networking computations for big data, streaming, IoT, and AR/VR
  * In-network data computations for network measurement and management
  * Distributed artificial intelligence with/for networking
  * Data modelling and applications of networking
  * Big data networking in healthcare, V2V, smart cities, industry and
    other applications

Selected papers will be recommended to EURASIP Journal on Wireless 
Communications and Networking or IEEE Network Magazine for potential
