Call For Papers


WIN 2022: 2nd International Workshop on Intent-based Networking

co-located with IEEE International Conference on Network Softwarization (NetSoft) - 27 June - 1 July 2022, Milan, Italy

Workshop paper submission deadline: February 28, 2022

Aim and Scope
Intent Based Networking (IBN) aims at technology-agnostic, fast and robust interaction between network infrastructure management systems and their users, in order to automate and speed up the deployment and lifecycle of applications. IBN as such covers mechanisms to recognize, understand and augment intents defining service or operational requests, so as to ensure their fulfillment, with the support of reliable system feedback enabling their execution within the expected quality limits.
The concept of IBN appeared in the 2010’s with a focus on automated policy configuration. IBN now reaches out to OTT applications deployed on multiple and heterogeneous networks. IBN solutions do not aim at covering all applications and the entire network. Instead, they are deemed to run in a well-defined network scope and associated knowledge domains. That said, IBN solutions need to have enough flexibility to span and exchange with connected domains.
The goal of this workshop is to gather research and experiments from industry, academia, and standards, to get a sense of where we stand, what needs to be addressed and what should be explored. To this end, the workshop will cover IBN aspects of all domains including applications, concepts, lifecycle, challenges, architectures, modeling, instantiation, robustness, etc.

Topics of Interest
* IBN concepts, architectures, and frameworks
* IBN enabling techniques: knowledge graphs, natural languages understanding, policy refinement, feedback control loops, smart telemetry, various artificial intelligence methods, etc.
* IBN applications and use cases, including scenarios combining digital infrastructures and vertical industries
* IBN proof-of-concepts, experimentations; report on field trials and real-world deployments
* IBN implementations, tools, and user interface design
* IBN applications for 5G, beyond-5G and 6G networks
* Intent modeling, representation, languages, and intent translation techniques
* Intent and intent-related information models (policies and services)
* Intent recognition, recommendation, and abstraction techniques
* Availability, resiliency, performance, trust, and security considerations in IBN
* Interfaces and API for intent based systems
* Recent advances in standards and open source

Important Dates
* Paper Submission: February 28, 2022
* Notification of Acceptance: April 11, 2022
* Camera-ready Submission: April 25, 2022
* Workshops Date: Either Monday June 27th, 2022 or Friday July 1st, 2022

A selection of the best papers will be further considered for possible publication in IEEE Journals and Magazines with high impact factors.
Only PDF files will be accepted for the review process and all manuscripts must be electronically submitted through EDAS:
