IEEE/IFIP Network Operations and Management Symposium
6–10 May 2024 // Seoul, South Korea

GAIN 2024

Website :

The GAIN workshop aims to systematically investigate and discuss the application of Generative AI in network management. It will bring together academic researchers from various disciplines (communication networks, data science, operational research) and practitioners from industry. Both scientific papers and industrial use case papers are welcomed. The considered topics in Generative AI for network management can initially be structured along the well-accepted FCAPS models in network management. This is a call for papers – example topics are as follows.

Fault Management

  • Predictive Maintenance: Using generative AI for proactive network management

  • Network Troubleshooting using Generative AI, incl. root cause analysis and resolution

  • Monitoring using Generative AI: Using generative AI for efficient monitoring of network resources

Configuration Management

  • Network Configuration Automation with Generative AI

  • Automated Network Design and Deployment using Generative AI

  • Generative AI for Traffic Management: Optimizing network traffic engineering through AI


  • Ethical Considerations: Addressing Privacy and Security Concerns in AI-Based Network Management

  • Ensuring fairness between network users using generative AI for optimal resource allocation


  • Network Optimization with AI: Leveraging generative algorithms for network efficiency

  • Dynamic Resource Allocation: Leveraging generative AI for efficient network resource management

  • Efficient Network Data Analysis using Generative A 


  • AI-Based Security Protocols: Developing next-generation network security strategies

  • Anomaly Detection and Response: Utilizing generative AI for enhanced network security

Use Cases

  • Generative AI for management of IoT, Wireless/RAN, or Core, and Cloud-to-Edge networking


  • Prompt Engineering for Network Management Using LLMs

  • Robustness and Reliability of Generative AI for net. management (incl. benchmarks and datasets)

  • Scalability Orchestration, Testing and Validation of Generative AI for Network Management
