Workshop on Big Data Service-oriented Intelligent Resource Management, Information Security, and Privacy Preservation for Future Communications and Networking

CALL FOR PAPERS

With the rapid innovation of communication techniques, huge amounts of data from mobile social networks, industrial sensors, the Internet of Things, etc., are collected to extract value through data analytics, thereby offering big data services and meeting diverse Quality of Experience (QoE) requirements of users. Machine Learning (ML) owning to its ability is used to learn from data and provide data-driven insights, decisions, and predictions. Considering the diverse characteristics of big data, traditional ML techniques are facing obstacles. 

Meanwhile, valuable information as vital resources for future networks can be optimized for improving the Quality of Service (QoS) of networks. Deep Reinforcement Learning (DRL) technology empowers intelligent decision-making of resources, i.e., the allocation of radio resources, the control of computing resources,s and the replacement of caching resources for future wireless communications through powerful learning and automatic adaptation capabilities, while supervised ML may help to predict the coming resources via capturing the time-varying data features, etc. As a powerful approach, AI is expected to play a game-changing role in future communications and networking since it can be exploited to provide innovative solutions to lots of emerging research issues, e.g., channel assignment and power allocation for improving the accessible data rate, computing resource (i.e., CPU cycle) control for the tradeoff between energy-saving and execution delay of large-scale distributed training, caching replacement for the coming demands of mobile users. 

In addition, with the increasing prevalence of massive datasets, large numbers of concerns regarding the security of cached information, the privacy of accessing desired information, the reliability of distributed computing, distributed training, and learning systems are raised. Current methods based on coding, communication, and information-theoretic have achieved exciting goals for the security of privacy. Many theoretical and practical can also open the proposed problems.

To better support future communications and networking, new ideas, theories, designs, mechanisms, frameworks, and technologies are called by us.
