Call for Papers - 12th International Conference on Pattern Recognition Applications and Methods (ICPRAM)

on 22-02-2023

... The 12th International Conference on Pattern Recognition Applications and Methods (ICPRAM) will take place in Lisbon, Portugal, on 22-24 February 2023.

ICPRAM is a major point of contact between researchers, engineers, and practitioners in the areas of Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning, both from theoretical and application perspectives. Contributions describing applications of Pattern Recognition techniques to real-world problems, interdisciplinary research, and experimental and/or theoretical studies yielding new insights that advance Pattern Recognition methods are especially encouraged.

Papers describing original work are invited in any of the areas listed below. Accepted papers, presented at the conference by one of the authors, will be published in the proceedings of ICPRAM with an ISBN. Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance, and originality. There will be both oral and poster sessions.

Special sessions, dedicated to case-studies and commercial presentations, as well as technical tutorials, dedicated to technical/scientific topics, are also envisaged: companies interested in presenting their products/methodologies or researchers interested in presenting a demo or lecturing a tutorial are invited to contact the conference secretariat.

ICPRAM is chaired by Ana Fred, researcher at Instituto de Telecomunicações and Professor at Instituto Superior Técnico, Portugal, and co-chaired by Maria De Marsico, Sapienza Università di Roma, Italy, and Gabriella Sanniti di Baja, Italian National Research Council CNR, Italy.

Globecom 2022 - Workshop on Sustainable Future Ultra-Dense Networks

on 04-12-2022

... The Workshop on Sustainable Future Ultra-Dense Networks will be held, as a hybrid event, in the scope of Globecom 2022 - IEEE Global Communications Conference, with the theme "Accelerating the Digital Transformation through Smart Communications", on December 4-8, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The Workshop will focus on Sustainable Future Ultra-Dense Networks (FutureUDNs) including vehicular environments, smart cities, and buildings, and envisage the most important components in future networks: frequency spectrum usage and underlying Radio Access Network (RAN) techniques. FutureUDNs consider aspects such as applying intelligence-based algorithms for energy-efficient communication systems, radio resource management, optimization of cellular and cell-free networks, as well as software-defined networking. Challenges encompass research on dual connectivity, carrier aggregation, and shared spectrum while exploring unlicensed spectrum. Future wireless networks will mainly consider centralized solutions, where virtualized-RANs are implemented to enhance 5G New Radio sustainability. Beyond 5G networks are being designed for a broad range of usage: enterprises and future mission-critical applications, virtual/augmented reality, and enhanced wireless usage for many verticals.

The Workshop on Sustainable Future Ultra-Dense Networks aims to bring researchers together to discuss the opportunities and challenges in the research, design, and optimization of future mobile and wireless networks that comprise UDNs, especially energy efficiency and business-oriented strategies. This event will focus on, but will not be limited to, the following subjects of interest:

(1) Use cases that include terrestrial and flying heterogeneous networks with small cells supporting URLLC, mMTC, and eMBB, e.g., in dense public and industrial environments;
(2) RAN techniques in future cellular and cell-free massive MIMO networks;
(3) Case studies that consider a diverse set of services, enabling sustainable cities and infrastructures: e.g., safe autonomous transportation, reliable access to remote health care;
(4) Radio resource management and capacity enhancement;
(5) Challenges in the optimization of networks with flying UAVs;
(6) Field trials and test beds in real setups, e.g., with Open RAN (and eCPRI) solutions, with Remote Units and UEs;
(7) Innovative models delivered through virtualization principles;
(8) Next-Generation Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11be/ax/ay) and interworking with 5G/LTE;
(9) Machine learning techniques to reach sustainable and efficient spectrum management solutions;
(10) Application of business planning strategies to evaluate the radio technologies and their deployments for innovative services and products;
(11) Aspects of privacy and security;
(12) Optimization of energy efficiency and sustainable techno-economic issues;
(13) Contribution to public policies for spectrum management;
(14) Standards and standardization activities.
