Calls for Participation

Demonstrate your knowledge and experience with infrastructure and artificial intelligence by speaking at IEEE Infrastructure Conference.  

Infrastructure 2019 will have both traditional papers (Wednesday, half day) and presentations only (Thursday, full day).

Compared to traditional conferences, this event focuses on industry: it is by industry and for industry. In addition to industry, academic and government authors who focus on the following criteria are also very welcome:

  • Negative results are welcome as long as there is a lesson learned from it and they are non-trivial
  • Toolchains, DevOps, support, etc.
  • Experience with non-functional requirements (security, performance, scale, reliability)

Proposed topics include:

  • Understanding the evolving role of AI to automate, address complex challenges in extreme scale
