Extended Deadline: May 06 - Call for Participation: KuVS Fachgespräch - Würzburg Workshop on Next-Generation Communication Networks (WüWoWAS’22)


The KuVS Fachgespräch - Würzburg Workshop on Modeling, Analysis and Simulation of Next-Generation Communication Networks (WüWoWAS’22) focuses on preliminary and ongoing research (or previously published hot topic papers) on next-generation communication networks. General topics include but are not limited to

  • Next-generation network architectures and services: 5G, 6G, IoT, Industrial networks
  • Concepts for future networks: softwarization, edge computing, AI and ML, automation.
  • Evaluation of performance, reliability and resilience: measurements, modeling, simulation, analysis on QoS, QoE, energy efficiency, etc.

The workshop will take place in-person in Würzburg, Germany from 11.07.2022 until 13.07.2022. We encourage PhD students, early career scientists as well as senior researchers to contribute early state and ongoing research or previously published hot topic papers in the form of extended abstracts no longer than 3 pages excluding references.

The goal of the workshop is to foster communication among researchers from industry and academia. To this end, invited experience talks and discussion slots on important topics in NGN are an integral part of the program.

Preliminary Program

The program will include dedicated time slots to discuss and brainstorm on dedicated topics in next-generation networks in a Dagstuhl-like format, moderated by TPC members that will participate in the workshop. These sessions will cover hot topics in networking.

Further, there will be a tutorial on the practical implementation of performance evaluation methodologies.

Details regarding the workshop program will be provided at a later date.
