CONASENSE Workshop 2023

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

Workshop: 21.11.2023; IEEE WPMC 2023: 19.11.2023-22.11.2023

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.

CONASENSE 2023, co-located with IEEE WPMC (technically co-sponsored by IEEE ComSoc) 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.

CONASENSE2023 follows the rules of IEEE WPMC 2023 for paper submission and accepts both full and short-papers. Full papers (6 plus 1 pages; USD 100 for each extra page) address mature work on related fields, covering in detail the developed research, sharing information on models, architectures, experimentation, use-cases, etc. Short- papers (2-4 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, 15.09.2023 extended to 22.09.2023 (strict deadline)
• Notification of acceptance, 10.10.2023
• Camera-ready submission, 31.10.2023
