GROWS: 6G-empoweRed iOt netWorkS
A Special Session at the IEEE 9th World Forum on Internet of Things

12-27 October 2023, Aveiro, Portugal

As 5G before, 6G is being heralded as the most immersive capable communications architecture to be developed in the coming years. To support this, we have started to see impressive displays of potential directions, technological advances, key performance (and value) indicators, standards evolution, and partnerships being established to foment policy making and research. Additionally, 6G can also pave new ways for a more streamlined experience, by more tightly coupling other kinds of network access such as Non-Terrestrial Networks, and by enabling radical new ways for communications in complex environments, such as maritime communications. But what does that mean for IoT? What will be the key enablers, the new scenarios and business opportunities? Will the enhancements allow the full fledged realization of an enhanced cyber-physical world, or just another incremental step towards such vision? How new worldwide concerns, such as environmental footprint, impact new technological designs? And what of IoT applications: what have key players learnt from the radical changed brought in by 5G, and which new requirements would they imprint over 6G? GROWS (6G-empoweRed iOt netWorkS) is a Special Session at 2023’s WFIoT, aiming to contribute with a concrete, holistic, multi-stake holder vision on what 6G really means for IoT, by presenting new results, discussions and prospect plans from different professionals from the full range of value chain.

GROWS will be looking for papers addressing the following:
- Efforts towards 6G standardization for IoT
- Proposals for 6G enhancements for radio, RAN and core targeting IoT
- Seamless interconnection with non-terrestrial networks and mobile networks in IoT deployments, considering 5G outcomes and 6G prospects
- Proposals for new 6G-enabled architectures and their expected contribution/impact for IoT
- The contributions of supportive/complementary technologies such as virtualization, cloud, AI/ML, edge, federation and others, for IoT-based scenarios
- Characterization and assessment of new IoT scenarios and industries enabled by 6G-capable IoT
- Comparison between the outcomes achieved by 5G-enabled IoT, and the prospects expected from 6G
- Evolution techniques and solutions for evolving 5G deployments towards 6G
- Energy-efficiency and sustainability aspects for 6G-enabled IoT
- Lessons learnt from 5G-enabled IoT deployments and further requirements for 6G enhancements
- Contributions of 6G for maritime IoT-based scenarios
- Industrial vertical areas certification and regulation impact in upcoming 6G solutions
