18th Wireless On-demand Network systems and Services Conference (WONS) 2023

January 30, 2023 @ 8:00 am - February 1, 2023 @ 5:00 pm CET

The conference will be held on 30th January – 1st February 2023 in Madonna di Campiglio, Italy.

Paper submission deadline: October 7, 2022 (paper registration deadline: September 30, 2022).

Call for papers

Wireless on-demand network systems and services have become a mainstream technology, one that keeps shaping the networked world of the future. Different types of wireless LANs, both sub-6 GHz and in higher frequency bands, as well as such established technologies as Bluetooth LE, LTE-Direct, NFC, and optical links are the cornerstone of networking paradigms including NextG cellular, mesh and sensor networks, cloud networks, vehicular networks, non-terrestrial networks and in-body networks.

The challenges of this exciting research field are numerous. These include providing robust services in highly dynamic and extreme environments, how to minimize energy demands or zero out battery usage in favor of renewable energy sources, how to smartly blend multiple wireless technologies available to a network node (including across radically different bands), and how to make wireless on-demand networks and services self-configurable, adaptive, self-organizing, and self-healing in a wealth of different context, each exhibiting its own peculiar constraints.

IFIP WONS, now at its eighteenth edition, has established itself as a high-quality forum to address the above and related challenges. WONS 2023 aims at continuing to provide a global platform for rich interactions between experts in their fields, discussing innovative contributions in a stimulating environment.
