Theme and Scope

It is thought that the Internet is approaching a turning
point and there might be the need for rethinking and redesigning the
entire system composed of the human society, nature, and the Internet.
To solve the problems across multiple layers on a large-scale and
complex system and to design the entire system of systems towards
future information networks for human/social orchestration, a new tide
of multi-perspective and multi-disciplinary research is essential. It
will involve not only the network engineering (network routing, mobile
and wireless networks, network measurement and management, high-speed
networks, etc.) and the networked applications (robotics, distributed
computing, human computer interactions, Kansei information processing,
etc.), but the network science (providing new tools to understand and
control the huge-scale complex systems based on theories, e.g., graph
theory, game theory, information theory, learning theory, statistical
physics, etc.) and the social science (enabling safe, secure, and
human-centric application principles and business-models).
In particular, recent strong demand on Internet of Things (IoT) and Cyber-Physical Systems (CSP) for smart and connected communities along with architectural advancement, such as Network Function Virtualization (NFV), Software Defined Networking (SDN), and Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC), have posed new and exciting challenges in Information Network Design.The Information Network Design Workshop aims at exploring ongoing
efforts in the theory and application on a wide variety of research
fields related to the design of information networks and resource
sharing in the networks. The workshop provides an opportunity for
academic/industry researchers and professionals to share, exchange,
and review recent advances on information network design research.
Original contribution describing recent modeling, analysis, and
experiment on network design research with particular, but not
exclusive, regard to:

• Large scale and/or Complex networks
• Cross layered networks
• Overlay and/or P2P networks
• Sensor and/or Mobile ad-hoc networks
• Delay/disruption tolerant networks
• Social networks
• Secure and/or resilient networking
• Network function virtualization/Software defined networking
• Multi-access edge computing
• Applications on networks
• Fundamental theories for network design
