The MSN 2020 Workshop on Advances in Intelligent Mobile Networks for Smart Cities (AINSC)


As 5G technology envisioned to change our lifestyle, smart cities bring new challenges for the all-round coverage using intelligent mobile networks. Metrics such as delay, bandwidth, and packet loss are repeatedly refined due to the upgrade of these next-generation communications. Move over, some emerging techniques (e.g., edge computing, SDN/NFV, artificial intelligence) are envisioned to have promising ability to bring novel learning-based approaches to upgrade the smart cities. This workshop provides a forum for academic researchers and industry practitioners to exchange the most recent progress in Advances in Intelligent Mobile Networks for Smart Cities.

The workshop solicits submissions from areas relating to intelligent algorithms/approaches to solve problems in data science of smart cities, intelligent mobile networks, AI-driven mobile applications and solutions for all related fields.


The interested topics include but not limited to:

  • Architectures and systems design

  • Resource allocation and management

  • New Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) service

  • Machine learning, deep learning for intelligent management

  • Cloud computing, edge computing in mobile networks

  • Protocol design and intelligent networking

  • QoS and QoE optimization

  • Social networking and computing for smart cities

  • Big data for smart cities

  • Network virtualization for smart cities

  • Green, reliable and low-latency communications

  • Security, Dependability, and Assurance issues in smart cities and mobile networks
