ECAI 2012 Workshop on Artificial Intelligence
for Telecommunications & Sensor Networks

Montpellier (France), Aug 27th, 2012


We live in a time of unprecedented change. Traffic on our telecommunication
networks has grown exponentially in the last decade. Many of the services and
applications that exist now were not even imagined a few years ago. Though we
can extrapolate some trends and make educated guesses, we cannot predict
exactly what lies ahead. Networks that are designed with change in mind will
be more robust to disruption caused by growing demands and changing user
patterns and yet-unimagined applications. The risks associated with investment
in these kinds of networks will be lower as they will be more durable and
scalable. Networks that are designed with change in mind will make effective
use of resources (e.g. spectrum, bandwidth, power, processing capabilities,
cooling capabilities etc.) and ensure a sustainable future.

The objective of this workshop is to bring together researchers and
technologists from academia and industry to explore the applications of
artificial intelligence to the most pertinent technical challenges in
telecommunications and sensor networks.


Workshop participation will be by invitation only. If you would like to
participate, submit either a full paper of no more than 6 pages (or 6,000
words); a position statement, short paper, or problem instance (at most 3
pages or 3,000 words); or a position statement (1 page). Short papers may
address an important problem for further research or describe a practical
problem or an interesting lesson learned. In addition, we solicit proposals
for short demonstrations (at most 3 pages with demonstrations taking at most
15 minutes). All submissions should conform to ECAI’s formatting guidelines,
to be available soon on the conference website.


We especially welcome papers that combine artificial intelligence and
telecommunications and sensor networks. Topics of interest in this workshop
related to artificial intelligence techniques applied to challenges in
telecommunications and sensor networks include but are not limited to the
o Constraint Optimisation
o Metaheuristic Optimisation
o Combinatorial Optimisation
o Online Stochastic Optimisation
o Optimal Stopping Theory for Online Decision-making
o Multi-agent Systems
o Distributed Optimisation
o Configuration systems
o Machine Learning and Data Mining
o Parameterised Complexity and Graph Theory
o Game Theory and Incentive Compatible Mechanism Design
o Reasoning with Uncertainty
o Knowledge-based Policy Management
o Fault Detection and Diagnosis

We are also interested in papers that present challenges in telecommunications
and sensor networks to which artificial intelligence techniques can be of
value, such as:
o Network Planning and Optimisation
o Network Reliability
o Dynamic Wavelength Assignment
o Autonomic Networks
o Medium Access Control
o Frequency Management
o Heterogeneous Networks
o Cognitive Radio
o Cognitive Networks
o Sensor Deployment
o Dynamic Network Repair
o Sensor Networks for Intelligent Environments
o Green Telecommunications Networks
