The 20th annual IEEE International Conference on Sensing, Communication, and Networking (SECON) 11-14 September 2023

The 20th annual IEEE International Conference on Sensing, Communication and Networking (SECON) is scheduled for September 11-14, 2023 in Madrid, Spain. It will provide a unique forum to exchange innovative research ideas, recent results, and share experiences among researchers and practitioners in wireless and mobile communication networks. The conference aims to serve as the reference exhibit for state-of-the-art research supported by implementation and insights gained on all scales of experimental systems, network architectures, components, and protocols.

Looking beyond current sensing, communication, and networking paradigms, IEEE SECON continues to emphasize pioneering cross-disciplinary work as its signature footprint in the contemporary research landscape. Towards that end, SECON encourages work that falls at the intersection of traditional sensing/networking and new disciplinary areas including (but not limited to) machine intelligence, data analytics, edge computing, social networks, rural connectivity, electromagnetic fields, to name a few, encompassing topics ranging from biological communication and computing networks to uncharted wireless bands, edge intelligence, social media data exploitation, mobile data analysis and beyond 5G/6G networking/communications aspects. Papers describing original, previously unpublished research, experimental efforts, practical experiences, as well as visionary roadmaps, in all aspects of sensor networks, Internet of Things, mobile devices, and wireless communication are solicited. Particular topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

• New communication paradigms, such as Terahertz communications, optical Wireless communications, visible light communication, acoustic communication, and uncharted wireless bands, reconfigurable intelligent surfaces
• Cellular communications and data networks, including 5G, 6G and beyond
• Molecular communication networks, networks of nano things and bio nano things
• New platforms, techniques, and hardware designs for low-power, energy limited and battery free sensing and communications
• Internet of Things; cyber-physical systems, software defined and programmable networks
• Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV)-based sensing/communications/networking
• Communication and networking for AI and machine learning
• Data analytics, AI, and machine learning for sensing, communication, and networking
• Cloud, edge, and fog computing for sensing and inference
• Time and location in sensing, communication, and networking
• Fairness and socio-technical issues in sensing, communication, and networking
• Security, privacy, and trustworthiness of mobile, wireless and sensor systems
• Novel experimental testbeds for sensing and networking systems, measurement of sensing and networking systems
• Deployment experiences in sensing, communication, and networking
• Sensing, communication, and networking in challenging scenarios (e.g., in-body networks, underground, underwater, rural and low-income areas, space)
• Resilience, dependability and sustainability of sensing systems (e.g. agriculture, industry, energy, transportation, water, and other smart infrastructural systems, autonomous driving, industrial internet, and smart cities)
• Novel applications such as wearable computing, virtual/augmented reality, smart and connected communities, sensing and networking of social systems
