Call for Workshop Proposal Submissions

2023 IEEE Future Networks World Forum (FNWF’23)
Theme: Imagining the network of the future
13-15 November 2023
Baltimore, MD, USA

Financially co-sponsored by
IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society, IEEE Circuits and Systems
Society, IEEE Communications Society, IEEE Electronics Packaging
Society, IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Society, IEEE Microwave
Theory and Techniques Society, IEEE Reliability Society, IEEE
Solid-State Circuits Society, and IEEE Vehicular Technology Society.

The 2023 IEEE Future Networks World Forum (FNWF’23) will continue the
path set in 2018 by the IEEE 5G World Forum in bringing together experts
from industry, academia, and research to exchange their vision as well
as their achieved advances in the continuing evolution of network
technology, including 5G, 6G, and other innovative cross-domain
breakthroughs. Located in Baltimore, USA, IEEE FNWF’23 seeks
contributions on how to nurture and cultivate future network
technologies and applications for the benefit of society. Workshop,
tutorial, industry forum, and demonstration proposals and original,
innovative, and high-quality papers are solicited on the technical
topics of Future Networks.

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.

The proposal should include the following information (within a maximum
of five pages):
•       Workshop title
•       Length of the session (2 hours or 4 hours)
•       Name(s) of workshop organizer(s)
•       Email of the contact person
•       A brief biography (no more than 200 words per person) of the
•       Brief description of the workshop, including abstract, scope, outline,
importance, and timeliness
•       Planned format of the session, including projected number of paper
presentations, invited presentations/keynotes, and/or panels within the
given timeframe if any
•       Potential participants, including program committee members and
invited speakers
•       Related topics
•       Prior history of past editions of the session, if any, including the
number of submitted and accepted papers, the number of attendees, etc.
•       A draft of the Call for Papers

Accepted events must follow IEEE academic best practices regarding peer
reviews and paper publication. The papers submitted to the workshops
will be reviewed and aligned with the same criteria of the main tracks
according to the overall framework set out by the FNWF'23 Technical
Program Committee. Accepted and presented papers will be added to IEEE
Xplore and the conference proceedings.

The workshop proposal should be submitted as a single PDF file online
via EDAS.
