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
