The 2nd International Workshop on Next Generation Data-driven Networks (NGDN' 2019)

Call for Papers:

The technologies of computing, machine learning and deep learning have undergone a series of evolutionary innovation over the past decades and improved the networked systems performance and quality of human life significantly. By applying such techniques, the performance of computer networks including fixed computer networks, WiMAX, MANETs, VANETs, etc., could be refined under the umbrella of network delivery capacity, resource availability and key metrics such as bandwidth, jitter, throughput, transmission delay and availability.

The NGDN workshop will be in-conjunction with the IEEE IUCC-2019 and held in Shenyang, China. NGDN-2019 is soliciting original and previously unpublished papers addressing research challenges and advances towards the design, implementation and evaluation of data communication technologies, systems, machine learning and data mining.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to following Topics:

  • Data-driven mobile computing and wireless communications

  • Data-driven computer networks

  • Data-driven network protocols

  • Data-driven telecommunications

  • Data-driven based network Trust, security, and privacy

  • Big data based 5G networks

  • Data-driven software defined networking (SDN)

  • Machine learning and deep learning technologies for networking

  • Network-based models and optimization algorithms

  • Data-driven social network analysis

  • Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data

  • Machine learning and data mining from multimedia in social networks

  • Data-driven network models and applications such as intelligent transport systems

  • Could computing and applications

  • System architecture (Hadoop/Spark/Flink etc.)

  • System performance analysis

  • Data mining, data quality, data visualization

  • Data Center operation and maintenance (power/water/central heating supply etc.)

  • Data Center management and optimization

  • Big Data based network planning and optimization

  • Big Data analysis of users (user group/user behavior/user track etc.)

  • Big Data assisted telecom operation (customer maintain/value-added service etc.)

  • Big Data analysis of mobile terminals (distribution/category/brand etc.)

  • Big Data analysis of network quality & performance & telecom value area

Submission Guide:

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts reporting original unpublished research and recent developments in the topics related to the workshop. The length of the papers is up to 6 pages (or 8 pages with over length charge, using IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Manuscripts style: two columns, single-spaced), including figures and references, using 10 fonts, and number each page. Papers should be submitted electronically in PDF format (or postscript) by sending it as an email attachment to Dr. Liang Zhao ( All papers will be peer reviewed and the comments will be provided to the authors. The accepted papers will be published together with those of other IUCC 2019 workshops by the IEEE Computer Society Press (indexed by EI). More information is available on IEEE IUCC website:
