Imagining the Network of the Future

Call for Workshop Proposals

IEEE FNWF’23 will host a series of workshop featuring topics relevant to the future networks community on the latest research, engineering, standards, and business issues. These workshops should provide a venue to present and discuss the state-of-the-art research in both academia and industry on special, novel, challenging, and emerging topics. Workshops typically include a mix of regular and invited presentations based on regular and invited papers, and invited presentations and panels to facilitate highly interactive sessions. It is expected that the organizers will be able to attract a good number of paper submissions (there need to be at least four accepted papers for a 2-hour session and eight accepted papers for a 4-hour session). The workshop proposals should be submitted by the prospective organizer(s) who will promote their workshop’s Call for Papers and manage the program.
