Title of Workshop: International Workshop on Emerging Transmission Techniques in beyond 5G/6G Communications (ETTC 2021)  

Aim and Scope

Recently, the research and planning of 6G communications have begun. Lots of emerging transmission techniques are expected to provide communication services for the future demands of the 2030s. This workshop provides a vision for 6G that could serve to exhibit guidelines to implement 6G applications. As main improvement, massive connections with low latency communications will still be the most important application of 6G. Furthermore, high spectrum efficiency, high security, secrecy and privacy should be key requirements of 6G wireless networks. To introduce to research community, this workshop brings interesting frameworks in which potential application scenarios of 6G are anticipated. This workshop attracts researchers together to explore the issues beyond communication technologies that could hamper research and deployment of 6G. Researchers and scholars from academia and industry are invited to submit their recent studies and innovations.

Paper Submission Guidelines:

Authors are invited to submit papers to the workshop. Full papers must be submitted through the conference paper submission site (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icspn2021). Authors must add (Workshop: WS08) at the beginning of paper title during the submission. Paper should be submitted in PDF format electronically with maximum length of 10 pages as per the Springer LNNS series format. All manuscripts will be reviewed and judged on merits including originality, significance, interest, correctness, clarity, and relevance to the broader community. Papers are strongly encouraged to report experiences, measurements, and user studies, and to provide an appropriate quantitative evaluation.

Submitted papers must include original work, and may not be under consideration for another conference or journal. They should also not be under review or be submitted to another workshop, conference, or journal during the review process. Authors should submit full papers electronically following the instructions from the ICSPN 2021 conference web site. Accepted papers will appear in proceedings available electronically. Authors of accepted papers are expected to register for and present their work at the workshop (in online mode).
