Call for Papers

This workshop will provide a forum to discuss and exchange innovative ideas, results and share experiences in next generation wireless radio access networks (NG-RANs) architecture, interfaces and implementations. It is targeted to discuss and educate about advances in fundamental and applied research, regulations, standardization, testbeds, and data.  


Topics include (but not limited to):  

  • O-RAN architecture, xApps, and rApps 

  • Novel interfaces for Next-G RAN, SD-RAN, and O-RAN

  • Machine, Deep, Federated, and Transfer Learning for Next-G RANs 

  • Self-organizing Next-G RANs 

  • Quality of Service (QoS) issues such as Dynamic Resource Allocation, Spectrum Allocation, Energy Efficiency for Next-G RANs 

  • Next-G RAN Slicing 

  • Novel transmission technologies for Next-G RANs 

  • New transceiver algorithms prototyping and architectural implementations 

  • AI enabled zero touch Next-G RANs 

  • Edge AI for Next-G RANs 

  • Decentralized AI for Next-G RANs 

  • Physical and medium control layer techniques for Next-G RANs 

  • Scheduling and routing for Next-G RANs 

  • Security aspects of Next-G RANs 

  • Simulators, testbeds, and software for O-RAN and Next-G RANs 

  • Next-G RAN prototyping and implementations

  • New ideas and concepts for O-RAN, SD-RAN, and Next-G RANs
