Call for Papers

The workshop on Softwarized Next Generation Networks for IoT Services (SIGNIS) intends to leverage communication, softwarization, and learning for provisioning IoT services, with the integration of different platforms such as cloud and fog/edge computing platforms in handling the heterogeneous and numerous IoT traffic generated in the network of 6G and beyond, along with the different network architectures such as Information- and Service-Centric Networking (ICN and SCN) including Service-Oriented Network Architecture (SONA). SNGIS aims to bring together researchers working not only on improving the network infrastructure to accommodate IoT services but also on realizing real-time IoT services in various domains such as smart cities, smart grid, vehicular networks, underwater networks, and so on. The authors are expected to share their new ideas, latest findings, and results in the following topics but not limited to:

  • Provisioning IoT services in 6G and beyond network architecture
  • Softwarization of next generation networks
  • Slicing to support heterogeneous IoT services
  • Network function virtualization (NFV) in the context of IoT services
  • Provisioning virtualized IoT services
  • Exploring ML and AI for enabling real-time IoT services
  • Resource orchestration in cloud, fog, edge networks for enabling IoT-services
  • Network management in ICN and SCN for IoT
  • Smart grid communication for heterogeneous and sporadic IoT services
  • Enabling heterogeneous and sporadic IoT services using vehicular networks
  • Transport layer issues in provision IoT services
  • Supporting multimedia-enabled IoT services
  • Business perspective of provisioning IoT services
