Completing the First International Workshop on Artificial Intelligence for IT Operations
We had our AIOPs 2020 workshop. It started at 7 am Munich time and ended around 4.15 pm. In the peak, we had 52 participants, which is far more than expected. Also, the organizers of the main conference were surprised and very happy. We promoted Huawei and the joint labs extensively. The organization was perfect, we had not a single problem. We also run gather.town instance for a virtual social gathering on the side, so attendants can meet and talk.
Content-wise we had 28 submissions, 13 accepted papers, 24 senior PC members from 15+ countries. Five companies (Huawei, IBM, Amazon, Elasticsys, HCL) contributed papers as well. Also, this was beyond the expectations, therefore the workshop program was a little bit full, but we still managed to have time for questions and discussions. There were a lot of discussions.
We had two of the most prominent AIOPs researcher worldwide as speakers for keynote talk: Prof. Dr. Dan Pei, Tsinghua University and Prof. Dr. Michael R. Lyu, Chinese University of Hong Kong.
They gave excellent talks and we are looking for ways to establish some kind of friendly association with our joint labs.
We plan a follow-up event in September / October in Berlin or Munich. We will invite the participants, PC members + other relevant people from industry and academia to a 2-3 day summit to discuss current issues and plan joint initiatives.
All in all, we are very happy with the day, the workshop, the organization, and the outcome. The recordings of the papers can be found on this link: aiops workshop videos
Many thanks for your participation and your efforts. We are looking forward to the further events to come.
It is our greatest pleasure to welcome Prof. Dr. Michael R. Lyu as one of the keynote speakers of our workshop. Prof. Dr. Michael R. Lyu is one of the leading
scientific experts in the field of AIOps. His research interests are related with the areas of software engineering, dependable computing, distributed systems, cloud computing, mobile networking, big data, and machine learning. His biliography includes more than 550 publications with over 38 000 citations.
Dr. Michael R. Lyu is currently a Professor of the Computer Science and Engineering department in the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
It is our greatest pleasure to welcome Prof. Dr. Dan Pei as one of the keynote speakers of our workshop. Prof. Dr. Dan Pei is one of the leading
scientific experts in the field of AIOps. Prof. Dan Pei has an extensive list of successful stories of application of AIOPS in real world prodcution systems that resulted in many publications in top conferences and journals.
Currently, he is leading the Netman Lab at Tshingua University.
Due to the current situation with COVID-19 and ICSOC 2020 going virutal, in coordination with the
ICSOC 2020 conference organiziers, we open a second submission window.
Welcome to AIOPS 2020
The International Workshop on Artificial Intelligence for IT Operations should bring
together researchers from both academia and industry to present their experiences, results,
and work in progress in this field. We want to strengthen the community and unite it towards
the goal of joining the efforts for solving the main challenges the field is currently facing.
A consensus and adoption of the principles of openness and reproducibility will boost the research
in this emerging area significantly.
The workshop will be collocated with ICSOC 2020
virtually, 14th of December 2020.
