1st Joint International Workshop on Network Programmability & Automation (NetPA 2021)
Monday 25 October 2021

NetP and ZNSM workshops havex merged to become the workshop on “Network Programmability and Automation” (NetPA). With the same spirit of CNSM as a whole, NetPA aims at providing an international forum for researchers and practitioners from academia and industry at large, including network operators, service providers, equipment manufacturers and IT companies, to discuss and address the challenges deriving from network programmability and network zero-touch automation for the delivery and operation of networks and services. On the one hand, the workshop will discuss the use of analytics and AI-based models to perform decision making at abstracted levels of the network to bring flexible and adaptive network service provisioning while ensuring smooth service continuity, SLA-compliance and service assurance. On the other hand, the workshop captures the evolutions of networking protocols towards more performance and security. This includes the design of high-level languages and associated tool chains for specifying network and nodes behaviors, automated methods and tools for validating both control and data plane operation; protocols for network programmability like Segment Routing; programmable data plane architectures, hardware platforms, software execution environments; network applications addressing open problems in traffic engineering, measurement, and problem diagnosis.

3rd International Workshop on High-Precision, Predictable, and Low-Latency Networking (HiPNet 2021)
Friday 29 October 2021

HiPNet has been combined with EI. HiPNet aims to provide a forum to discuss challenges and present work-in-progress and solution approaches to deliver/manage/control/monitor/measure on high-precision and predictable networks such as (Ultra) Low-Latency networks, deterministic networks, 6G, etc.
