Smart and Secure System Management (S3M) aims to discuss advanced models of Computational Intelligence, System Management, and Secure Systems to promote the future generation of System Management processes. We seek to promote a research agenda around topics relevant to the advancement of Smart System Management, Smart Network and Service Management, and AI and Big Data in Cybersecurity aiming at novel technologies, translate research into industry, support new business and create new industries. 


Topics of interest include (non exhaustive list):

  • Smart System Management

  • Smart Network and Service Management

  • AI and Cybersecurity

  • Autonomic Management

  • Machine Learning in System Management

  • Machine Learning in Cybersecurity

  • Decision support systems in System Management

  • Computational Intelligence and Software Defined Networks

  • Computational Intelligence and Cloud-Edge Services

The goal is to develop a research agenda addressing the gap between R&D and practical applications of Smart System Management. The discussion will revolve around questions such as: How to create and combine currently scientific paradigms and disruptive technologies that enable the next generation of solutions for challenging scenarios in System Management, Network Management, and Cybersecurity? How to create computational models, algorithms and protocols to enable the next generation of Smart System Management and Cybersecurity? How to explore models of Cognitive Systems and new trends in Cybersecurity in this context? And, how to translate these advanced researches into industry solutions? 

The half-day event will feature a mixture of invited talks, discussions and submitted contributions describing current work or work in progress around the target topics.

We conclude with a panel discussion on the topic “A Research Agenda for the Future of Smart System Management and Cybersecurity” to foment the development of new technologies, support new business structures, and shape the academia-industry relationship.
