This will be an in-person event in Montreal, Canada, but authors of accepted conference papers may opt to present remotely.
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, called the 5G World Forum in its first four years, aims to bring experts from industry, academia and research to exchange their visions 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.

How to Submit: Proposal submissions are not through EDAS — anyone Interested in submitting a proposal to these tracks should get in contact via e-mail with the corresponding contact persons indicated below:
Deadlines and Contacts for Topical/Vertical sessions:
Papers must be submitted electronically – see above for EDAS links for each track
Full papers describing original research, written in English. The suggested size is four pages; papers up to six (6) printed pages (10 point font) including figures, tables, will be accepted incurring additional page charges. Extended versions of selected papers may be considered for publication in alternative IEEE publications.
When preparing your manuscript, please also pay attention to the following:
If your paper has been prepared using Microsoft Word or LaTeX, please ensure that you have used the most current version which will help reduce pdf conversion issues such as embedded fonts, bookmarks, etc.
No page numbers and no headers/footers
Use non-zero PDF top and bottom margins (typically at least 0.5 inches/12.7 mm) to help indicate if there are any page numbers
Standard IEEE conference templates for Microsoft Word and LaTeX formats can be found here.
Papers will be fully peer-reviewed. If the paper is accepted and presented, it will be included in the conference proceedings and be submitted to the Xplore Digital Library. IEEE takes the protection of intellectual property very seriously. All submissions will be screened for plagiarism using Cross Check. By submitting your work you agree to allow IEEE to screen your work for plagiarism.
Please note: To be published in the IEEE 5G World Forum 2021 Conference Proceedings and to be eligible for publication in IEEE Xplore®, an author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference and the paper must be presented by an author of that paper at the conference unless the TPC Chair grants permission for a substitute presenter arranged in advance and who is qualified both to present and answer questions. Non-refundable registration fees must be paid prior to uploading the final IEEE formatted, publication-ready version of the paper. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE 5G World Forum 2021 Conference Proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore®.
