13 June 2022 @ 9:00 - 13:00 CEST

SLICES organises a Workshop on “Scientific Instruments to support digital infrastructure science” @ IFIP Networking Conference 2022 and calls for papers:

SLICES solicits original papers including but not limited to:

  • Advanced wireless networking experimentation
    • New waveforms;
    • Higher frequencies up to THz;
    • Spectrum and wireless management;
    • Integrated sensing and communication;
    • Multiple heterogeneous radio management;
  • Testing Smart/intelligent infrastructure operation and management
    • Advanced protocols and architecture (virtualization, softwarization, programmability);
    • AI applied to infrastructure operation and optimization at all layers;
    • Generation of data to train algorithms;
    • Distribution of intelligence into the Edge of the network;
  • Design and validation of new Edge/Fog infrastructures
    • Software and components deployment;
    • Distributed resource management;
    • Geo-distributed data management;
    • Federated deep-learning;
  • Methodology for designing and operating a scientific instrument
    • Instrumentation and measurement;
    • Architecture and APIs;
    • Experiment design and life-cycle management;
    • Data management and reproducibility;
    • Testbed implementation and operation.

The workshop will follow a full day structure. The Workshop programme is structured for a full day withTalks/Panels in the workshop session, complemented with demonstrations if this is made possible. This workshop also continues the work started in the INFOCOM 2019 “Workshop on Experimentation Meets Platforms: A Survey of macro trends in mobile communication research and its impact on future testbed development”. 

IFIP Networking 2022 will take place in the auditorium (“Aula Magna”) of the “Didattica” building at the “Cittadella” of the University of Catania. This is located in Via Sofia 64, Catania.
