Unprecedented expansion of cloud services offering Infrastructure as a
Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service
(SaaS) paves the way for the virtualization of entire 5G-capable hardware
and software stacks; thus, leading the emergence of 5G as a service
(5GaaS). It enables on-demand service deployment, while mitigating the
risks of physical installation, lowering operational and capital
expenditures (OPEX/CAPEX), aggregating the service providers and customers'
requirements on the same platform.

On the other hand, Content Delivery Networks (CDN) play a key role in the
management of 5GaaS subscribers and their contents, where the applications
define unique 5G requirements raised by novel trafic types, such as:
enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB), Ultra-Reliable Low Latency (URLLC), and
massive Machine Transmission Communication (mMTC). Various bandwidth and
latency requirements of these service types force CDN to benefit from the
technologies such as Edge/Fog computation in order to sustain ever-
complicating network management, revolutionizing the heterogeneous
orchestration of the entire infrastructure spanning from server deployment,
to network access. Under this expanding heterogeneity, the most feasible
way to meet 5G requirements is to design an intelligent network management
on 5G physical infrastructure. According to service providers, dynamic
configuration and intelligent self-management for CDN can be only handled
by Software Defined Networks (SDN). They believe that SDN proposes
inexpensive network feature insertion thanks to a global view on the
network and programming the network devices dynamically without any
intervention on the physical plane. It enables flexible, scalable, and
self-manageable virtual network slices to the customers according to
Service Level Agreements (SLA).

Both global management and network programmability features of SDN enable
us to design and integrate novel techniques on 5G networks such as
Artificial Intelligence (AI). In the recent years, AI is one of the most
rapidly growing fields, finding new application domains with new and unique
challenges everyday. This drastically changes the way the
researchers/engineers used to approach to optimization processes. AI is
broadly categorized into three main subsets such as Machine Learning (ML),
Meta-Heuristics, and Fuzzy Inference Systems. Utilizing these tools, the
following candidate applications for 5GaaS may only describe the tip of the
iceberg. A technique executing ML uses the statistics collected from 5G
physical plane periodically and performs supervised and/or unsupervised
learning such as Artificial Neural Networks (ANN), Support Vector Machines
(SVM), Decision Trees (DT), K-means clustering, Hidden Markov Model (HMM),
etc. A technique executing Meta-Heuristics algorithms solves hard
optimization problems that cannot be executed within a reasonable time such
as Ant Colony Optimization (ACO), Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO),
Genetic Algorithm (GA), Simulated Annealing (SA), etc. A technique
depending on Fuzzy logic has an advantage in representing customer
experience and their explanation abilities.

To this end, AI-5GaaS aims to improve the experience of customers and their
service providers in 5G networks by serving AI-based techniques as a
service to handle reduced OPEX/CAPEX. Therefore, this special issue aims to
bring together talented researchers in the field and state-of-art designs
and techniques to shape the future of 5G.

*Potential topics include, but are not limited to:*

   1. Meta-heuristics for AI based 5G networks;
   2. Fuzzy inference systems for AI based 5G networks;
   3. Cloud-Fog-Edge computing mechanisms;
   4. AI-based mobility management;
   5. SDN/NFV for autonomous network management;
   6. CDN solutions for next generation networks;
   7. Application areas for 5GaaS;
   8. Security and Privacy issues for 5GaaS;
   9. Testbeds, applications, case studies for 5GaaS;
   10. APIS, new protocols and programming languages for 5GaaS
