Call for Presentations

Numerous new applications including machine-to-machine communications, mobile broadband, virtual and augmented reality demonstrated the vast potential of fifth-generation (5G) wireless communications, and it is in full swing around the world. As satellites will play important roles and are new to the traditional terrestrial-based mobile systems, this workshop addresses the issues concerning the role of satellite systems as a complementary solution for ubiquitous 6G coverage. The emerging applications such as precision agriculture, health care, and autonomous cars dictate the research agenda of 6G and beyond to provide global connectivity and satisfy the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The purpose of this workshop is to address the key innovations needed in different sectors (e.g., system architecture, network management, security, QoS/QoE and KPIs) to meet the expected challenges in performance for future 6G systems empowered with a satellite multi-layer system (also denoted as Non-Terrestrial Network, NTN). This workshop is completely virtual and organized by the Satellite working group within the IEEE Future Networks Initiative (https://futurenetworks.ieee.org/) and is aimed to discuss new ideas for the revised roadmap with the contributions of authors of main stakeholders in this field. This event will also be the opportunity to discuss novel ideas and to share the views with other participants via question/answer sessions at the end of each talk.

This workshop will be organized in tracks (at least one track per day) with a keynote from industry or related project per day and papers according to the tracks and topics below:

  • Physical layer for 6G NTN networks
    • mmWave advances
    • Advanced signal processing techniques
    • Integrated optical and RF communications
  • Performance evaluation of QoS/QoE and KPI for 6G satellite networks
    • QoS techniques for satellite 6G
    • KPIs requirements for satellite and NTN in 6G
    • Performance evaluation of satellite networks
  • Future satellite networks management
    • Network management for mega-LEO systems
    • Intelligent and autonomous network management
    • Topology and handover management in future SatNets
    • SDN/NFV in future SatNets
    • Future satellite network security
  • Edge computing and intelligence for satellite 6G
    • Edge intelligence
    • Edge/Fog computing in future SatNets
    • Massive IoT via satellite
    • Implications on system architecture

 

Submissions

The workshop will be only based on presentation. Submission should be in the format of presentation slides. The aim is to present innovative ideas and aspects of satellite 6G including NTN. The presentation should contain at least 20 slides. A template will be provided below. The submission of presentations will be carried out via EDAS (link below). The accepted presentations (slide decks), as well as video recordings of the live talks, will be made available after the workshop for registered people via the workshop website. A possible selection of papers will be invited to submit to IEEE 5G Technical Focus (https://futurenetworks.ieee.org/tech-focus). Participation in this event is free of charge.

Submit your speaking proposals here.
If you do not have an EDAS account, create one here.
Deadline: 16 Jue 2022
Each proposal (maximum 2 pages) must include:

  • Title and Abstract
  • Specific track (see descriptions above)
  • A short biography (no more than 200 words) of each speaker
  • An explanation of the motivation, background, objective, description of the challenges to be covered, relevance, and timeliness. The proposal will be reviewed based on its relevance, the topic’s importance to the workshop, and the diversity it offers in terms of the problem, proposed solution, and evaluation approach.
