IEEE Workshop Data Science for Networking (DS4N)

Previously Big Data and Machine Learning in Telecom (BMLIT)

Dec 11-14 (TBD), 2017, Boston, MA, USA

In conjunction with the 2017 IEEE International Conference on Big Data (Big Data 2017)

Technically sponsored by IEEE ComSoc TCCN SIG on AI Embedded Cognitive Networks.

Due to numerous requests, we extend the deadline to October 27, 2017.



In recently years, data science technologies, such as big data, AI and machine learning, have attracted increasing attention in various networking domains, from network applications to network infrastructure, from telecom networks to enterprise networks, from service providers to equipment manufactures. This trend is enabled by advances and applications of big data technologies in communication networks, and increasing bodies of networked data have become available to be analyzed and mined. Therefore, there is an urgent demand of tools and products of exploiting this data to provide more intelligence in network operations and management. We see largely three bodies of networked data to be explored:

The workshop aims to bringing together researchers, data scientists, data analysts, and engineers in the area of networking to exchange their ideas, experience, and results in all aspects of mining networking data and injecting intelligence into networks and networking equipment.

We intend to have a full-day workshop with one keynote talk, one or two invited talks, and seven to ten regular talks.



Topics of interest include data science practices in areas of but not limited to:
