13th CONASENSE Workshop – co-located with IEEE WPMC2023 CALL FOR PAPERS


The definition of a sustainable 6G ecosystem requires an interdisciplinary debate that can bring together experts from multiple fields, including communications, sensing, people/centric, sustainable services. Driving this vision from a technology perspective is the use of virtualization and softwarization to assist support to a vast number of active devices, while integrating a high capability of adaptation.

CONASENSE2023 focuses on the need to address such adaptation from a cross-layer perspective, where computation and networking become intertwined due to softwarization. The workshop focuses on work that addresses a 6G paradigm that can be addressed by working together 4 different computational areas: communications; satellites and navigation; sensing; people-centric services.
CONASENSE 2023 follows the rules of IEEE WPMC 2023 for paper submission and accepts both full and short-papers. Full papers (10-12 pages) address mature work on related fields, covering in detail the developed research, sharing information on models, architectures, experimentation, use-cases, etc. Short- papers (4-6 pages) address work under development, where solutions are being advocated, but experimentation may still be an early stage.

Paper submission via the IEEE WPMC 2023 EDAS

• Paper submission, 01.07.2023
• Notification of acceptance, 15.09.2023
• Camera-ready submission, 15.10.2023

Topics of interest for CONASENSE 2023 include but are not limited to:

– Communications.
▪ Unified architectural communications involving ground to spaceborne infrastructures
▪ quantum communications and their role and challenges in 6G;
▪ Sustainable and green Edge-Cloud architectures
▪ Open vRAN architectures, covering the far Edge.
▪ AI-driven networking management
▪ Semantic communications for supporting multiverse scenarios

– Satellites and Navigation
◦ Orchestration across terrestrial and non-terrestrial networks
◦ Joint sensing and localization
◦ Routing for smart constellations

– Sensing.
◦ Joint sensing and communications
◦ IoT communication and orchestration
◦ Large-scale sensing scenarios challenges
◦ AI-based sensing

– Services
◦ Use-case experimentation for People-centric sustainable services relying on communications, sensing, satellites and navigation
◦ Experimental frameworks, living labs, devising 6G design.
◦ Sustainable design of services.
