5G-TRANSFORMER @1st Workshop of COntrol and Management of network slices for VERTicals (COMVERT)
April 15 @ 9:00 - April 18 @ 17:00
5G-TRANSFORMER co-organises the First Workshop of COntrol and Management of network slices for VERTicals (COMVERT) in conjunction with the IEEE WCNC. The IEEE WCNC is the only IEEE conference focused exclusively on wireless research, technology, and applications. The 2018 edition of this conference will be held in Barcelona on April 15-18, 2018 at the Barcelona International Convention Centre (CCIB) and will be organized by the Centre Tecnològic de Telecomunicacions de Catalunya (CTTC)
The Phase 2 5G PPP project calls for papers.
Paper Submission Deadline: November 2, 2017
Notification of Acceptance: December 15, 2017
Camera-ready version: January 12, 2018
