Submit papers at: https://jems.sbc.org.br/home.cgi?c=4020

Digital twins provide virtual and real-time representations of physical
networks and empower network designers and operators to achieve simplified,
automatic, evidence-driven, and resilient full life-cycle operation and
maintenance. Digital twin networking has seen a continuous and rising interest
from the research, engineering, and operational communities in recent years,
with proposals on base technologies, architectures, and practical
implementations. TNT will explore the duality created by i) using digital twin
technologies to enable new ways of managing and operating networks and digital
infrastructures and ii) the challenges emerging from the management of
large-scale digital twins requiring innovative forms of networked systems
management. Federation, data fusion, interoperability, and integrability of
heterogeneous network twins in multi-provider, multi-operator and
multi-domains/multi-applications environments will become increasingly
important considerations to allow digital twin technologies to deliver their
full potential and value across all industries.

and Protocols for the Next-Generation Tactile Internet” (FlexNGIA

Website: https://www.flexngia.net/workshop-flexngia-2022
Submit papers at: https://jems.sbc.org.br/home.cgi?c=4021

The rise of edge, Cloud and in-network computing and the proliferation of AI
solutions in networking  are  promoting  the development of innovative
applications like virtual/augmented reality, telepresence, autonomous systems,
remotely controlled robotics and tactile applications, promising to
revolutionize health-care, transportation, industry, agriculture, society and
culture. To deploy such applications and  to  comply  with  their
requirements,  there is a need for new Internet architectures and protocols
allowing a  Tactile  Internet  that  combines  ultra  low latency with
extremely high availability,  reliability  and  security. T . Such novel
architectures and protocols are embodied in several initiatives like FlexNGIA
(https://www.FlexNGIA.net) or projects like Teraflow
(https://www.teraflow-h2020.eu). This workshop has the purpose of investigating
how to rethink the current  Internet and to devise new architectures and
protocols by efficiently harnessing recent technological advances in
virtualization, network softwarization, NFV/SDN, and Data plane

Website: https://grasec.uni.lu/
Submit papers at: https://jems.sbc.org.br/home.cgi?c=4022

Graph-based modeling offers the advantage of understanding complex
attacks and determining the root cause of an attack. However, existing
graph mining tools for anomaly detection over streaming events are not
adapted for cyber-security problems while the corresponding data
continuously appears in the form of complex graphs. The main goal of
GraSec is to present research and experience results in graph
applications on network and cybersecurity as well as the defensive and
offensive tools.

The Internet of Things (IoT) emerges as a major architectural
paradigm for achieving machine-to-machine (M2M) communication.
Managing IoT-based systems is complex and exciting.
Though being an evolution from classical management,
managing IoT things is still disruptive as classical assumptions
about connectivity, compute resources, or usage patterns do not
hold anymore. The manage-IoT workshop focuses on management
methodologies for the Internet of Things, including resource, data,
service, and security management.

Submit papers at: https://jems.sbc.org.br/home.cgi?c=4027

The Internet of Things (IoT) and related future networking concepts promise the
ubiquitous availability of data. In the near future, service-oriented
interaction will become part of IoT design principles, forming a new type of
emergent behavior. New methods, models, and algorithms are necessary in order
to ensure functionality, resiliency, and security. The workshop addresses
current research related to the implementation and realization of future IoT
applications and systems. Particular focus is put on concepts, tools, and the
toolchains that are required for this endeavor. Furthermore, flexible right
management, capability and performance profiles, and request evaluation for
dynamically composed IoT settings will be targeted. We want to discuss how to
realize abstract representations of these aspects in order to automatically
react to adapted requests, changed network configurations, or system states.
