The 1st International Workshop on Big Data and Machine Learning for Networking

July 22, 2021, Athens, Greece


The Internet of Everything (IoE) enables universal connectivity between people, process, data and things through wired or wireless networks. IoE includes People-to-People (P2P), People-to-Machine (P2M) and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications. Thus, it has been the backbone of smart-world systems. With an exceptional number of people and things being interconnected in IoE, the data sources and volumes exponentially increase and the process cooperating individual components becomes even sophisticated. This intensifies the heterogeneity, uncertainty and complexity of networking in IoE. Nonetheless, the fog/edge computing in IoE paves the way for big data and machine learning technology to tackle these issues and harness networking benefits. It is relatively novel to use big data and machine learning technology to mine and remember networking characteristics in IoE, and help develop proactive, reactive and predictive algorithms to improve network management, protocol design, service placement, threat detection, security assurance, etc.. The big data and machine learning technology is thus promising to support IoE with delivering successful process, which transmits legitimate data collected from proper things to target people in IoE to create great values across communities, academics, industries and governments. 

This workshop solicits papers in all aspects of big data and machine learning for networking. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Data Mining and Big Data Analytics for IoT

Instructions for Authors:

Submitted manuscripts must be formatted in standard IEEE camera-ready format (double-column, 10-pt font) and must be submitted via Easychair (https://easychair.org/) as PDF files (formatted for 8.5×11-inch paper). The manuscripts should be no longer than 6 pages. Two additional pages are permitted if the authors are willing to pay an over-length charge at the time of publication (manuscripts should not exceed 8 pages). Submitted papers cannot have been previously published in or be under consideration for publication in another journal or conference. The workshop Program Committee reserves the right to not review papers that either exceed the length specification or have been submitted or published elsewhere. Submissions must include a title, abstract, keywords, author(s), and affiliation(s) with postal and e-mail address(es).

Review and Publication of Manuscripts:

Submitted papers will be reviewed by the workshop Program Committee and judged on originality, technical correctness, relevance, and quality of presentation. An accepted paper must be presented at the ICCCN 2021 venue by one of the authors registered at the full registration rate. Each workshop registration covers up to two workshop papers by an author. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the ICCCN proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases. IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference, including IEEE Xplore┬« Digital Library if the paper is not presented by the author at the conference.

ICCCN 2021 Paper Submission Terms and Conditions:

  • Authors declare that the submission is original and has not been submitted to other venues or under consideration by other venues.
  • Paper titles and/or author names cannot be changed and/or added to the papers once papers are submitted to ICCCN 2021 for review and in the final camera-ready manuscript.
  • If the paper is accepted, at least one of the authors must register at full rate and present it in person at the conference. Accepted and paid paper(s) but not presented onsite by the registered author(s) (for any reason, including visa issues, travel problems, etc.) will be published in the conference proceedings only. We strongly encourage that all authors of accepted papers apply for an entry visa to Greece in case one author cannot get the entry visa.

Important Dates:

  • Paper submission deadline:  March 5, 2021
  • Notification of acceptance: April 23, 2021 (Hard Deadline)
  • Camera-ready paper due: April 30, 2021 (Hard Deadline)
