[DMANET] IEEE TNSM - Special Issue on Embracing Artificial Intelligence for Network and Service Management (Deadline: April 1st, 2021)

IEEE Transactions on Network and Service Management (impact factor: 4.682)

Special Issue on Embracing Artificial Intelligence for Network and
Service Management

https://www.comsoc.org/publications/journals/ieee-tnsm/cfp

(Submissions due: 1 April 2021)

Artificial Intelligence (AI) can harness the immense amount of
operational data from clouds, to services, to social and communication
networks. In the era of big data and connected devices of all
varieties, artificial intelligence has found ways to improve
operations and management of information technology services, systems
and networks.

Research is therefore needed to understand and improve the potential
and suitability of artificial intelligence in the context of services,
systems and network management. This will provide deeper understanding
and better decision making based on largely collected and available
operational and service data. It will also present opportunities for
improving artificial intelligence algorithms on aspects such as
reliability, dependability and scalability, as well as demonstrate the
benefits of these methods in management and control systems. Moreover,
there is an opportunity to define novel platforms that can harness the
vast operational data and advanced artificial intelligence algorithms
to drive management decisions in networks, data centers, and clouds.

IEEE Transactions on Network and Service Management (IEEE TNSM) is a
premier journal for timely publication of archival research on the
management of networks, systems, services and applications. Following
the success of four recent TNSM special issues on Big Data Analytics
for Management in 2016, 2018, 2019, and 2020 this special issue will
also focus on recent, emerging approaches and technical models that
exploits artificial intelligence in network and service management
solutions. We welcome submissions addressing the underlying challenges
and opportunities, presenting novel techniques, experimental results,
or theoretical approaches motivated by management problems. Survey
papers that offer a perspective on related work and identify key
challenges and opportunities for future research are also in the scope
of the special issue. We look forward to your submissions!

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/a-guide-to-writing-mathmatial-notation-tickets-141741020207

A guide to writing mathematical notation

Writing mathematics does not come naturally to most people. However when
you are engaging in technical material need to be able to read and write in
a formal notation. In this talk we will look at some simple example of
common mathematical notation. We will not have not time to cover all
notation. The relationship between mathematical notation and computer
program will be considered. We will compare and contrast some examples. The
aim of this talk is to give the audience more confident when faced with
reading and writing mathematical notation.

9 MAR How to write

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/how-to-write-tickets-141741353203

When I was a PhD student, I loved research but hated writing about it.
Since then I have attended numerous courses on writing and come to love it.
I will pass on the tips and tricks I have learnt over the years. It will
also be an opportunity to hear any other views too. This talk is aimed at
PhD students, especially those who are "stuck in a rut", have writer's
block, or are *procrastinating*.

Here are some comments about the writing seminar

Highly recommended for everyone who needs to do academic writing, it
covered many mistakes I make myself.

I wish I'd have heard some of this advice a long time ago when doing my PhD!

Very useful, and this made me laugh.

I found this session really helpful. I applied the technique of writing my
third year project proposal by first getting everything down on paper, and
then going forward, removing bits, and then sorting out punctuation. I also
used the technique of going into finer detail at Facebook

"I liked how the talk provided a pathway from a pile of disorganised
scribbled notes to a finished paper, via techniques with Powerpoint and
Post-It notes, showing us how to organise our thoughts and ideas into a
publication.

In general, with many of your talks, I really like how you think and lead
in with examples, and build up the ideas you're presenting with simple
intuitions, stories, anecdotes, and thought experiments."

"It took me years to arrive at some of the conclusions addressed in this
tutorial. This kind of advice is great for those starting research academic
careers!"

"An excellent seminar that has given explanations and solutions to my
writing issues"

We are a growing research group with a broad interest in AI that publish
in leading venues with many international connections such as the TAILOR
network. We are especially interested in
* Incremental reasoning and learning especially stream reasoning,
* spatio-temporal reasoning and learning for example about trajectories
and events/activities,
* multi-agent reasoning and learning for example combinatorial
assignment and multi-agent multi-objective reinforcement learning, and
* reasoning and learning for Trustworthy AI such as privacy-preserving
synthetic data generation and run-time verification for safe autonomous
systems.

At least one of the postdocs will work on developing new machine
learning methods for creating privacy preserving synthetic
spatio-temporal trajectory data sets. The goal is to 1) extend
generative adversarial network (GAN) methods to learn generative
spatio-temporal trajectory models and 2) develop new Bayesian
Optimization methods for creating tailored privacy-preserving synthetic
data sets using these generative models.

We welcome applicants that have their own research ideas that are
aligned with the research group.

[DMANET] PhD position in Algebraic Methods in Graph Recognition at TU Eindhoven

In the Combinatorial Optimization group at Eindhoven University (The
Netherlands), there is a vacancy for a 4 year PhD-position. This PhD
position is funded by the NWO KLEIN- 1 grant " Algebraic Methods in Graph
Recognition ", and is supervised by Aida Abiad
<https://sites.google.com/site/aidaabiadhomepage/>.



PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Spectral graph theory associates a matrix to a graph and then seeks to
deduce from the eigenvalues of this matrix structural properties about the
graph. This branch of mathematics has witnessed spectacular development in
the last several decades, and grown into such a rich field with a wide
variety of its own approaches and methodology. The main aim of this project
is to develop new algebraic methods to further our understanding of which
graph properties can be deduced from its spectrum, and on the other side,
to investigate new tools to construct graphs having the same spectrum in
order to understand which graph properties do not follow from the spectrum.



REQUIREMENTS

- Master degree in Mathematics

- Strong background in discrete mathematics, linear algebra or related
topics

- Very good written and communication skills in English



ABOUT TU EINDHOVEN, THE DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICS AND COMPUTER SCIENCE, AND

THE COMBINATORIAL OPTIMIZATION GROUP

The TU Eindhoven <https://www.tue.nl/en/> (TU/e) was established in 1956 as
a polytechnic. It has grown into a university with nine departments. The
TU/e now has approximately 3000 employees (incl. PhD students) and 8000 BSc
and MSc students. The TU/e campus is in the center of Eindhoven. Our
Department offers several bachelor and master programs, all of which are
taught in English. The Combinatorial Optimization group
<https://www.tue.nl/en/research/research-groups/mathematics/statistics-probability-and-operations-research/combinatorial-optimization-1/>
provides a dynamic international research atmosphere.



BEING A PhD STUDENT IN THE NETHERLANDS

In the Netherlands, every PhD student gets paid a salary; no additional
grants are needed. Moreover, although PhD students sometimes take courses,
there is no minimum requirement. Hence, PhD students are more like
employees than like students. Indeed, the Dutch word for PhD student
translates to "research trainee". The work of a PhD student may include
assisting in courses of BSc or MSc programs of the department. This amounts
to around 10% of the time; the remaining time is spent on research and
research-related activities. Foreign PhD students need not speak Dutch: it
is easy to get by with English, not only at the university but also in
everyday life.



WHAT WE OFFER

We offer a PhD position in Algebraic Graph Theory. Gross salary ranges from
2.325 euro per month in the first year increasing up to 2.972 euro in the
fourth year. The TU Eindhoven offers a broad package of fringe benefits
(e.g. excellent technical infrastructure, child daycare and excellent
sports facilities).



FURTHER INFORMATION

For more information about the project or about the working conditions,
please contact Aida Abiad (a.abiad.monge@tue.nl), or Frits Spieksma (
