The First Workshop on Next-Generation Mobile Networking and Computing (NGMobile 2021)

In conjunction with IEEE ICDCS 2021

July 7 - July 10, 2021


As 5G mobile networks are emerging, there are incredible interests by various stakeholders in developing innovative technologies and applications to enhance 5G and/or enable the next generation of mobile networking and computing. These technologies are able to further increase data rate and coverage, improve spectrum efficiency and energy efficiency, reduce latency, enhance network reliability, mobility management, and quality of service through dynamic access of shared spectrum, efficient operation with limited radio and network resources, virtualization of wireless network functions, integration of computation and storage at the wireless edge, and application of AI/ML for new wireless system and architecture design.

This Workshop serves as a forum for scientists and engineers in both academia and industry to discuss their original research work, findings, and experiences on the innovations on next-generation mobile networking and computing.

We invite submissions of original and unpublished works.

Particular areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • 5G enhancement/6G, next-G mobile networking architectures and protocols
  • Cloud-RAN and Fog-RAN
  • Mobile edge/fog computing
  • Mobile cloud computing
  • Integrated wireless networking, storage, and computing
  • Internet of Things (IoT) and machine-type communications
  • Cross-layer wireless network design
  • Massive MIMO beamforming/NOMA networks
  • Resource orchestration in next-generation mobile networks
  • Software defined radio and cognitive radio networks
  • Wireless network function virtualization (NFV)
  • QoS/QoE in next-generation wireless networks
  • Drone/UAV networking
  • Vehicular networking (V2V/V2I/V2X)
  • Spectrum sensing, access, and sharing
  • Terahertz wireless communications
  • Energy-efficient green communications
  • Ultra-reliable low-latency communications
  • AI/ML for wireless networks
  • AI/ML for spectrum management
  • Distributed AI/ML over wireless edge networks
  • Wireless network security (physical layer, application layer, etc.)
  • Next-generation spectrum/radio network anomaly, intrusion, and attack detection/prevention
  • Novel mobile applications and services

Submitted papers must be original and unpublished, and must not be submitted for publication elsewhere concurrently. All paper submissions should follow IEEE 8.5" x 11" Two-Column Format . Each submission must not exceed 8 pages including references.

Electronic submission site:

All submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by the program committee members. At least one author of all the accepted paper should register and give a presentation in the conference in order for the accepted paper to be included into the IEEE digital library. All accepted papers will be included in IEEE Xplore and indexed by EI.
