AIOPS 2020

International Workshop on
Artificial Intelligence for IT Operations

Dubai, 14-17 December 2020

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 conference in Dubai 14-17 of December 2020.

Diversity and Inclusion

We are committed to creating an inclusive and welcoming workshop. We have strived to create a diverse program and reviewer pool for our workshop, and to share our call for papers widely. However, we also are grateful for suggestions of any individual researchers or research groups who we might have missed.
