25th Conference on Innovation in Clouds, Internet and Networks (ICIN 2022)
On behalf of the Organizing and Technical Program Committees, we are pleased to welcome you to the 25th Conference on Innovation in Clouds, Internet and Networks (ICIN 2022) will be held from March 7 to 10, 2022 in Paris, France.
For the 2022 edition, ICIN is focusing on the move towards “NextG” and the upcoming 6G that is clearly up-to-the-minute and probably happening faster than expected now that initial 5G deployments are a reality. The need for ambient connectivity at the network edge requires novel thinking and the already engaged convergence between Network, IT and Cloud systems is still an enabler for efficient cooperation between all network technologies (wireless, optic, satellite, IoT and low-power, etc). These tendencies are aligned with the growing adoption of cognitive approaches for management and control, as well as for specific services at the edge and at critical technical domains using highly optimized deployment models in terms of resource and energy use.
Several innovations are impacting the ways to address emerging requirements from all sectors of the social and economical domains (health, environment, agriculture, industry, banking, etc.) that are also evolving with digitalization. The extraction of valuable and tailored services along with the extension of the network reach and the software-based automation of its operation are 3 main axes to which schemes for high reliability and adaptability are extremely needed to capitalize on the openness and heterogeneity that beyond 5G and 6G networks would drive.
While pushing towards super connectivity, including responsible and social-oriented evolutions of networks is structural. In addition to technical drivers, addressing social aspects will be important for 6G. In this regard, there is a need for rethinking the requirements and use cases along with the evolution in all the above-mentioned sectors and rely on a variety of complementary mechanisms enabling the new generation of network and service offerings to act for a human then a digital world.
Considering the many challenges that the aforementioned paradigms and technologies will bring, the theme for ICIN 2022 is:
“Paving the way to an inclusive and sustainable 6G”
The conference will foster discussion about new ideas and novel approaches for future 6G networks and services and their enabling technologies and mechanisms in the emerging scenario of immersive connectivity, security and intelligence. With this vision, the conference will look beyond the current state of the art and promote the advances of network of networks with control and management approaches that foster reliability and optimality for applications and services that leverage societies and business.
Interested authors are invited to submit papers presenting novel technical research, research related to business impact or mechanisms of new technologies, as well as broader position and visionary papers. Contributions that discuss lessons learnt and best practices, describe practical deployment and implementation experiences as well as demonstrating innovative use-cases are also and especially encouraged.
ICIN 2021 is technically co-sponsored by IEEE, IEEE ComSoc and ACM SIGMOBILE In-Cooperation.
All accepted & presented papers will be published in IEEE Xplore.
The best papers presented at the conference will be invited to submit an extended version for fast-track review in the following journals:
- IEEE Communications Magazine (Impact Factor: 10.356)
- IEEE Transactions on Network Service and Management (Impact Factor: 4.682)
We are honored to organize ICIN 2022 in Paris, France and we are looking forward to your contributions to the continued success of the conference!
