CALL FOR PAPERS – MOBISLICE V – Mobility Support in Slice-based network control for heterogeneous environments

Network slicing has been standing as one of the key enabling technologies for the 5th Generation of Telecommunications, and is being evolved to meet the stringent requirements for the next generation. Alongside other important technologies, such as NFV, SDN and MEC, its contributions to isolated network provisioning in a more dynamic and flexible way are being pursued in different industry and academia arenas throughout the world. Nonetheless, considering the wide range of foreseen enhanced use cases (not only in scope of 5G, Beyond-5G and 6G, slicing aspects have been mostly targeting either enhancements at the radio level, or the integration of novel cloud resourcing capabilities for supporting network operation at the core and/or the edge. As such, there is a wide gap related with the impact that such slicing-based procedures will exert over mobility management processes for seamless mobility support while the devices, network or services move both physically (i.e., change their network point of attachment) as well as virtually (i.e., between slices). MOBISLICE V will address the evolutionary path that starts from existing deployed slice-mobility solutions (both still in research as well as in the wild) and will progress that analysis by assessing the technical considerations that are not yet feasible by current standardisation efforts and deployments, and must be progressed in regard to the integration with other complementary procedures and mechanisms, such as Security, AI/ML, Fog and Edge. Here we will address to which degree new use cases have gone beyond initial technological enablement for mobile slices, and paved the way for further capabilities, enhancements, use case scenarios and applications, whose scope goes into whole new levels and network evolutions.

The MOBISLICE V workshop focuses, but is not limited to, the following topics targeting slicing:
- Use cases and architectures evaluation
○ Slices in constrained environments (IoT, Edge, etc.)
○ Vertical-based scenarios (e.g., Factories of the future including manufacturing automation and process automation; Automotive service and ITS; Telco Operator and enterprise-based environments)
○ Smart-X slice mobility, assisted by AI/ML, fog and edge
○ Reliability and security
○ Experimental, real trials and their impact in vertical performance
- Network, Computation and other enablers
○ Main operations and API
○ Inter- and intra-slice mobility procedures
○ Lifecycle management and impact
○ Heterogeneous access convergence or abstraction
○ High availability and reliability techniques
○ Experimental and real trials
○ Secure-enabled, AI/ML-enabled and Fog/Edge-enabled slices
- Standardization efforts and activities
○ Status and progresses in 3GPP/ETSI/IETF/ONF and other SDOs
○ Proposals and standardization direction for advanced slicing
○ SDN/NFV/Cloud/Edge/Fog initiatives
○ Slice-enhanced Networking and telecommunication protocols
○ AI/ML and Security-based slice standardisation
- Beyond-5G and 6G slicing
○ Disruptive architectures
○ Zero-touch slice performance
○ Experimental and real trials
○ New scenarios
