Call for Papers and Proposals – Submit by August 15

The 2021 IEEE 4th 5G World Forum (5GWF’21) seeks contributions on how to nurture and cultivate future network technologies and applications beyond 5G and how they can benefit society. This will be a virtual event similar to 5GWF’20 (view the 2020 Program for reference), but we are also planning an in person event in Montreal, Canada that will be an official part of 5GWF’21. Physical attendance is not expected or required for authors and presenters, but those who live in or near Montreal are welcome at that in-person event pending local regulations for travel and social gatherings.

Call for Papers and Proposals

5G systems have started to deliver a novel mobile network architecture that not only improves physical data rate, but also creates a new ecosystem allowing the deployment of novel services and applications. A key target for future networks will be to improve support not only for classical mobile broadband applications and services but also for vertical industry (e.g. Intelligent Transport, Industrial IoTs, eHealth, etc.) and other mobility-based services. This conference aims to bring experts from industry, academia and research to exchange their vision as well as their achieved advances in 5G and towards 6G, and encourage innovative cross-domain studies, research, early deployment and large-scale pilot showcases that address the challenges of 5G while identifying and investigating the possibilities of future networks.
