6G-PDN workshop at MobiHoc2023

6G-PDN: 6G Programmable Deterministic Networking with AI

PREDICT-6G and DESIRE6G will organize another joint workshop, this time collocated with MobiHoc 2023.

MobiHoc 2023, the 24th International Symposium on Theory, Algorithmic Foundations, and Protocol Design for Mobile Networks and Mobile Computing will be held in Washington DC, USA, in October 23-26, 2023

The aim of the 6G-PDN workshop is to discuss the roadmap and challenges in the technological areas of deterministic communications and deep network programmability in 6G to support future end-to- end time-critical applications.

Call for papers – Deadline: 12th of July

Creating a deterministic network, understood as end-to-end time sensitive, reliable, and predictable communications, remains a challenge for cellular networks, especially in an industrial context. Wired deterministic communication standards have already emerged including Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) and Deterministic Networking (DetNet) and 5G has specified mechanisms for interworking with those standards. However, the available support of 5G in conjunction with TSN and DetNet is not sufficient for future end-to-end time-critical applications.

Network programmability is key in supporting emerging 6G networks in achieving their promises of increased performance and flexibility at a lower cost. Deep network programmability is expected to characterize the new generation of mobile networks (6G), currently under development, towards supporting extreme performance requirements and service-specific operations.

Enriching next-generation mobile networks with data plane programming capabilities can bring significant benefits with regards to network slicing and multi-tenancy, dynamic traffic engineering, offloading network functions to the data plane, etc. Coupled with edge solutions and advanced machine learning algorithms for network automation can help to overcome network performance limits, e.g., in terms of latency and deterministic delivery.

We look forward to receiving your contributions (short and long papers) related to the aforementioned topics until the 12th of July!
