The 16th International Conference on Mobility, Sensing and Networking (IEEE MSN 2020)

December 17-19, Tokyo, Japan

Call for Workshops

IEEE MSN has been a premier venue for presenting scholarly research on mobile ad-hoc and sensor networks. Advances in this field are leading to innovative platforms, protocols, systems, and applications for the next-generation mobile networks, Internet of Things, and Cyber-Physical Systems. From this year, the conference name is changed to Mobility, Sensing and Networking to cover the recent advancement in mobile and wireless technologies. With its 16th anniversary, MSN 2020 will be held at Tokyo, Japan.

The MSN 2020 Workshop Chairs invite proposals for one-day or half-day workshops, to be held prior to or immediately after the main conference. The purpose of the workshops is to provide a venue for presenting novel ideas in a less formal and typically more focused area than the main conference. Workshops should be organized to promote lively interaction, and plans to promote interaction and discussion must be clearly addressed in the written workshop proposals. The organizers of accepted workshops are required to announce the workshop and call for papers, solicit submissions, conduct the reviewing process, and decide upon the final workshop program. At least one organizer must be physically present at the workshop.

Workshop proposals are solicited in all areas and topics pertaining to research and applications in Mobility, Sensing and Networking. Workshops addressing new emerging research directions in Mobility, Sensing and Networking are especially welcome. Further, workshops with novel formats, e.g., focused on a specific topic in a tutorial-style fashion, are strongly encouraged. Workshop papers will be included and indexed in the IEEE digital libraries (Xplore). The page limit for accepted regular workshop papers is 6 pages, including all figures, tables, and references.

Proposal Submission Guidelines

Workshop proposals should be submitted (in PDF format) no later than May 15, 2020 by e-mail to the MSN 2020 Workshop Co-chairs (see email id below), with "MSN 2020 Workshop Proposal" in the subject. Each proposal must include:

  1. The workshop title and acronym.
  2. The name, address, and a short bio of up to 200 words for each of the workshops’ organizers; workshops may have up to three organizers. It is strongly recommended that organizers belong to at least two different institutions.
  3. A brief description of the workshop with a list of the technical issues/topics that the workshop will address. Some example topics of interest might be Edge computing, Mobile crowdsensing, Using AI for intelligent management and communications in Ad Hoc networks, etc.
  4. A description of the publicity plan.
  5. The names of potential program committee members.
  6. The workshop website address (preliminary).
  7. A preliminary call for papers.
