Welcome to 5GMan 2018

The Third IFIP/IEEE International Workshop on Management of 5G Networks (5GMan 2018) will be held in conjunction with the IEEE/IFIP Network Operations and Management Symposium (NOMS 2018) in Taipei, Taiwan.

5G is envisioned as the next generation of mobile networks. Several initiatives are taking place in Asia, America and Europe, such as the MOST (Ministry of Science & Technology) 5G project in China, the 5G forum formed in South Korea, the “2020 and beyond” Ad Hoc group in Japan, the 5G Infrastructure Public Private Partnership (5G PPP) in Europe, in addition to several standardization related activities. The emerging common features/requirements from these worldwide activities could be summarized as the following: faster data transfer rates, shorter latency, availability, security, lower costs and power consumption and high performance in fast mobility situations. Thus, 5G will be the place to deploy many new technologies. In particular, 5G networks are expected to rely massively on the most recent advances in Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV), hence offering the opportunity to build an open and innovative platform for communications and a novel brand gathering current and future network architectures, technologies and usage. Besides the need for an innovative 5G network architecture, effective and advanced network management architectures and techniques are also cornerstones to fulfil these requirements.

The main goal of this workshop is to present state-of-the-art research results and experience reports in the area of management of 5G networks, addressing topics such as management of SDN and NFV-based networks and services, advances in the management of cloud platforms, programmatic languages and abstractions applied to resources and service management, big data and analytics applied to management.
