Call For Papers

The 1st edition of RECON - Reinforcement Learning for Communication and Network Optimization workshop, co-located with the IEEE Military Communications Conference (MILCOM 2023)

30 October – 3 November 2023 // Boston, MA, USA

Scope and topics

RECON focuses on the application of Reinforcement Learning (RL) to tactical and civilian communication networks. RECON aims to cover a wide range of topics within this domain, and we encourage researchers to submit their work on various subjects including, but not limited to, network planning, network optimization, adaptive protocols, decentralized network management, novel learning algorithms and frameworks, agent coordination architectures, datasets and testbeds, and practical challenges associated with deploying RL and Machine Learning (ML) in communication networks.
