COVI-COM intends to leverage technological advancements and techniques in communications and AI to address disruptive, as well as regular challenges arising due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. The present-day world urgently needs resilient and sustainable solutions that can address the challenges arising out of the mandated need for periodic sanitization, intermittent quarantines and lockdowns, and social distancing. This workshop aims to mobilize the global communications and networking community for enabling long-term solutions for alleviating the social and economic constraints put in place to battle COVID-19 infections and arrest its spread. The impact of these solutions are projected to be long-term as with no definite cure or treatment in sight, human society is expected to adapt to the new social norms of intermittent lockdowns, quarantine, and social distancing. This workshop encourages the use of machine learning techniques, data mining, network science, communication technologies, and other similar technologies to counter the challenges arising out of the present COVID-19 pandemic.
