1st Workshop on Intent driven autonomous networks (NESTOR)
In conjunction with the 27th Conference on Innovation in Clouds, Internet and Networks (ICIN’2024)

The term “intent" in the autonomous network refers to the goal or the objective from the external customers and internal Operation and Management (O&M) personnel, which represents a set of business or operational requirements in the declarative form or even using the natural language. The intent facilitates the users to express their business objectives, business logic, constraints, etc. towards the communication networks; however, it does not specify the detailed implementation way.
Intent driven autonomous networks require an intent processing flow, starting from “natural language” input refining to machine understandable configurations with implementation agnostic “intent primitive”, and then to implement¬ specific “executable policies” and “reliability configurations”. As the system evolves, such intent processing flow should be adaptive to the execution feedback and dynamically changing circumstances.
This releases the customers from the manual effort to manage all technical aspects of network services and reduces the network O&M burden to address potentially conflicting goals, which can provide the users with flexible and reliable network services, realize efficient utilization of network resources, and fully release the network potentials.

The workshop aims to bring together researchers from both academia and industry to investigate challenging aspects in intent-driven management for the 5G and the future 6G systems, as well as to identify future research directions. Open issues and key innovations will be discussed for aspects related to Intent-based network management. Authors are invited to submit original unpublished papers to this workshop.

Topics include, but are not limited to:
• Standardization of intent-based management for the telco cloud
• Orchestration frameworks and intent-based management methodologies
• Intent-driven management for the virtualised RAN
• Intent-based management approaches in 5G and towards 6G communications
• Application of intent-based management architectures and frameworks in telecom networks
• Human-to-system intent interpretation through Natural Language Processing (NLP)
• Machine-to-machine intent expression
• Automated intent translation and policy generation
• Automated intent/policy conflict detection and resolution
• Automated intent monitoring and assurance
• Knowledge-driven intent/policy management
• AI-driven intent/policy management
• Intent test and verification before activation
• AI asset management for intent-driven autonomous networks
• Emerging standards, technologies and advances on intent-driven management
• Intent-driven management for real-time and deterministic communications
• Coupling between Management Data Analytics (MDA) and intent-based management
