EMPOWERING 6G NETWORKS: FIRST WORKSHOP ON ADVANCEMENTS IN RESEARCH INFRASTRUCTURES, ADAPTIVE FRAMEWORKS AND GLOBAL ARCHITECTURAL EVOLUTION (ATHENA 2024)

The IEEE International Workshop on Computer Aided Modeling and Design of Communication Links and Networks (CAMAD) 2024 invites researchers, practitioners, and industry experts to submit their original contributions to the workshop titled “Empowering 6G Networks: Workshop on Advancements in Research Infrastructures, Adaptive Frameworks, and Global Architectural Evolution.”

Workshop Scope:

The “Empowering 6G Networks” workshop, to be held at IEEE CAMAD 2024, is dedicated to exploring the vast potential of 6G technology and its impact on the future of communication. This workshop aims to serve as a crucible for innovative ideas, research findings, and discussions that will shape the trajectory of 6G development. The scope of this workshop encompasses a broad spectrum of topics, each pivotal to the realization of 6G’s promise.

At the core of the workshop’s scope is the advancement of research infrastructures. This includes the development of testbeds and simulation environments that mirror the complexity of real-world 6G scenarios. Such infrastructures are essential for validating the theoretical models and practical applications that will underpin 6G networks. They also provide a foundation for cross-disciplinary collaboration, bringing together experts in telecommunications, computer science, electrical engineering, and other fields to push the boundaries of what is possible.

Adaptive frameworks are another critical aspect of the workshop’s focus. As 6G networks will need to be inherently flexible to accommodate a wide range of applications and services, these frameworks will explore how networks can self-organize, heal, and optimize themselves in response to dynamic conditions. This includes the use of AI and machine learning to predict and respond to network demands, as well as the development of algorithms that can dynamically allocate resources in real-time.

The global architectural evolution of networks is also a central theme. The workshop will delve into how 6G networks can be architected to ensure seamless global connectivity, supporting the burgeoning Internet of Things (IoT), autonomous systems, and smart cities. Discussions will cover the integration of terrestrial and non-terrestrial networks, the role of edge computing in reducing latency, and the use of blockchain and other distributed ledger technologies to secure and manage network transactions.

Topics of Interest:

The “Empowering 6G Networks” workshop will focus on the latest advancements in 6G network research infrastructures, adaptive frameworks, and the evolution of global network architecture. This workshop will serve as a platform for discussing the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead in the journey towards realizing the full potential of 6G networks.

Submission Guidelines:

Authors are encouraged to submit high-quality, original work that has not been previously published. Submissions should be formatted according to the IEEE conference template and submitted through the EDAS submission portal. Detailed instructions and submission deadlines will be provided on the IEEE CAMAD 2024 website.
