Connectivity – Security – Privacy

Call for Papers

Therefore, this workshops aims at presenting the most relevant scenarios, prominent research outcomes and state-of-the-art advances of 5G related to ultra-reliable low latency communication. Only technical papers describing previously unpublished, original, state-of-the-art research, and not currently under review by a conference or a journal will be considered. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

· Federated Machine learning for 6G wireless networks
· Multi-agent Reinforcement learning for 6G wireless networks
· Integrated Aerial/Terrestrial Networks
· Connected and Autonomous Aerial Networks
· AI & Data Analytics in Intelligent, Adaptive, and Efficient Networks of 2030s
· Ubiquitous 3D Super-Connectivity for networks of 2030s
· Predictive Resource Allocation and Scheduling for 6G
· Novel and Innovative NOMA solutions for 6G
· Novel hybrid and flexible waveforms for low latency communications
· Cross-Layer design and performance analysis for low latency applications
· Protocol stack restructure and procedures for low latency communication
· Coverage improvement techniques for low latency communication
· Spectrum aspects of URLLC – carrier frequency and spectrum requirements
· Network slicing and network functions virtualization – with focus on low latency
· Novel approaches towards session management and protocol stack,
· RAN concepts in the context of latency- or reliability-critical applications,
· Architectural enablers for distributed or edge computing,
· Technical solutions to allow for a co-existence of traffic with stringent latency/reliability requirements and
other traffic (e.g. with ultra-high throughput requirements).
· Enabling technologies: e.g., SDN, NFV, CRAN, D2D, cloud/fog computing and networking
· Emerging cellular architectures for distributed and flexible network functions in 5G/B5G
· Network/Resource slicing and network functions virtualization with focus on low latency
· Advanced radio resource management techniques for URLLC
· Low latency industrial control systems
· Information theoretic results for low latency communications
· Joint Control and Communication management for 5G use cases such as V2V, V2X and V2I
· Risk-Aware Resource Allocation for URLLC
