Workshop Data Analytics, SliCing Management and Beyond-5G Orchestration (GANOCA)
August 31, 2021, Avignon, France.
Collocated with ITC 33.
Slices orchestration of 5G and Beyond-5G networks will rely on fine-tuned resource allocation mechanisms, designed to be embedded onto virtualized infrastructure management frameworks. The orchestration will be highly dynamic, operating the allocations at different time scales, from long-term to real-time policies, depending on the resource and service types, and their location. Decision-making algorithms should be integrated on an automated loop, relying directly on a real-state knowledge of both users and network elements behaviors. Thus, data collection and advanced data-analytics and machine learning techniques will be critical for next-generation mobile networks to adapt to the service demand in an automated fashion.
This workshop on Data Analytics, Slicing Management and Beyond-5G Orchestration aims at providing a forum for researchers and to discuss and address the challenges related to resource allocation, slices orchestration and data analytics for cognitive management of virtualized networks.
The workshop welcomes 20 minutes presentation proposals on the following (non-exhaustive) topics:
- resource allocation for slices;
- 5G network orchestration;
- optimization of network slices;
- dynamic reconfiguration of networks for network slicing;
- Mobile Network data-analytics;
- Traffic pattern classification;
- Mobile traffic prediction;
- Network anomaly detection;
Submissions consist of a title + short abstract proposal, to be sent at the following registration form before July 30.
Registration is free but mandatory for logistics requirements.
The GANOCA Workshop will take place at the University of Avignon (74 Rue Louis Pasteur, 84029 Avignon, Room AT01), in downtown Avignon.
Walking is the best transportation means to wander around in the city, as it only takes half an hour to go from one point of the city walls to the opposite location and only 20 minutes from the train station to the conference place.
Avignon is also equipped with a dense bus system, with on-line indications on trajectories, schedules and prices on the web site TCRA. Particularly, the walls shuttle stops at every gate and links the train station to the university.
