IEEE International Conference on Computer Communications
6-9 July 2020 // Virtual Conference

Workshop on Network Intelligence

The 3rd International Workshop on Network Intelligence (NI 2020): Learning and Optimizing Future Networks

in conjunction with IEEE INFOCOM 2020

6 July 2020, Toronto, Canada




Network Intelligence considers the embedding of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in future networks to fasten service delivery and operations, leverage Quality of Experience (QoE) and guarantee service availability, also allowing better agility, resiliency, faster customization and security. This concept inherits the solid background of autonomic networking, cognitive management, and artificial intelligence. It is envisioned as mandatory to manage, pilot and operate the forthcoming network built upon SDN, NFV and cloud.

The main goal of the Network Intelligence Workshop is to present state-of-the-art research results and experience reports in the area of network intelligence, addressing topics such as artificial intelligence techniques and models for network and service management; smart service orchestration and delivery, dynamic Service Function Chaining, Intent and policy based management, centralized vs distributed control of SDN/NFV based networks, analytics and big data approaches, knowledge creation and decision making. This workshop offers a timely venue for researchers and industry partners to present and discuss their latest results in Network Intelligence. The main topic of this NI 2020 edition is “Learning and Optimizing Future Networks” which puts the attention on the particular application of network intelligence and machine learning to optimization in future network scenarios.

This workshop is supported by the IEEE ComSoc Emerging Technical Initiative on Network Intelligence. Join us at the ETI NI as a member for cross-fertilization on Network Intelligence research activities. All information is available at
