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
