Federated Learning for 6G-enabled IoT 2021 : ROBUST, LOW-LATENCY AND EFFICIENT FEDERATED LEARNING FOR 6G-ENABLED INTERNET OF THINGS
Call For Papers
Internet of Things (IoT) applications, such as intelligent transportation and remote health monitoring, are poised to make incredible advances in our life. The cellular network has become the main force to support IoT services due to its extremely high capacity, security, reliability, and flexibility. To facilitate the deployment of IoT, the third-generation partnership project (3GPP) has recently issued Release 16 and 17 for cellular IoT. The next generation of cellular six-generation (6G) communication systems is expected to extend the current 5G performance to achieve lower power consumption, lower latency, higher reliability, etc., which is widely believed to be more suitable for supporting IoT and can offer a wide range of smart applications.
In the 6G-enabled IoT era, massive devices and a large amount of data are ripe for the deployment of machine learning approaches, to provide high-quality smart services. However, IoT devices do not want to share their personal data with others due to the risk of data misuse and leakage. As a distributed machine learning approach with data privacy, Federated Learning (FL) has attracted enormous attention in IoT application fields in recent years. The evolution of FL technologies has also experienced a number of challenges including convergence rate analysis, devices selection, resource allocation and etc. Various theories, optimization algorithms, and sophisticated schemes have been proposed to tackle these challenges. Once the FL technology becomes more robust, more low-latency and more efficient in the future, more applications in 6G can be benefited from FL to make the future 6G systems provide strong security. However, towards more robust, more low-latency and more efficient FL for 6G-enabled IoT, there remains much to be done.
The scope of this workshop includes but not limited to the following topics:
Scalable FL Framework for 6G-Enabled IoT
AI-Enabled Intelligent FL System
Joint Resource Allocation and Devices Selection Schemes for FL
FL for Emerging IoT Applications, e.g. Vehicular IoT, Virtual Reality (VR),UAV-Enabled Communication
