Background and Goals

Due to the increased complexity of today’s networking infrastructures and the proliferation of services offered, a pressing need for their automatic operation and maintenance has been established. This fact is mainly associated with the cost, time and reliability required for managing efficiently such huge systems. Furthermore the adaptive configuration of networked systems’ operational parameters can lead to stable or even increased performance. Self organization concepts and techniques are already playing an important role in the 4th generation of mobile communications. Indeed Long Term Evolution (LTE) includes Self-Organizing Networks (SON) concepts already from Release 8, which was finalized in March 2009 and defines three application categories: Self-Configuration, Self-Optimisation and Self-Healing. Furthermore there are obvious advantages in applying self organization concepts in ad-hoc and sensor networks. Self organization aspects are expected to proliferate in 5G networks due to the densification and heterogeneity that they present in addition to the introduction of Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV) and Software Defined Network (SDN) concepts. This workshop aims in presenting the latest research on the concepts of self organized networking and adaptive communications, highlight their necessity and provide provide solutions, both from industry and academia.
