2023 20th Annual IEEE International Conference on Sensing, Communication, and Networking
11-14 September 2023 // Madrid, Spain

Call for Workshop Proposals

Call for Workshop Proposals

The 20th annual IEEE SECON conference will provide a unique forum to exchange innovative research ideas, present recent results, and share experiences among researchers and practitioners in wireless and communication networks. IEEE SECON 2023 especially aims at showcasing cross-disciplinary research, experimentation, and/or hands-on evaluations at the intersection of sensing, communications, and networking (e.g., including machine intelligence, data analytics, edge computing, social networks, rural connectivity, electromagnetic fields).

IEEE SECON 2023 will hold half-day and full-day workshops on 11 September 2023, in conjunction with the main conference. The goal of the workshops is to provide a forum for researchers to discuss early research results and share experiences on specific topics that are more focused than those of the general conference. The workshops will be held online. The accepted papers of the workshops will appear in IEEE Xplore.

As a tentative timeline, the workshops should target June 1 2023 for paper submissions with acceptance notifications approximately four weeks later, and the camera-ready version of accepted papers due no later than 15 July 2023.
