Call For Papers

SENET: Semantic Communication-aided Wireless Networks for Emerging Technologies
Co-located with IEEE MASS 2024
25 September, 2024

The objective of the workshop is to familiarize participants with semantic communication and its importance in the context of wireless networking for emerging technologies. It aims to delve into how semantic technologies can be seamlessly integrated with wireless communication protocols to improve efficiency, co-existence among protocols, interoperability across devices, reliability of communication, and scalability of networks. Discussions will focus on understanding how semantics contribute to context-awareness within networks, facilitate intelligent decision-making processes, and enable adaptive resource management in dynamic wireless environments. Real-world applications and case studies showcasing the benefits of semantic communication in various domains will be explored to provide practical insights.

We invite workshop papers that align with the theme and objectives outlined above. This workshop seeks to catalyze innovation, promote collaboration, and facilitate knowledge sharing among experts, researchers, practitioners, and industry professionals across the wireless networking and semantic technologies domains.


Semantic communication-aided wireless networks represent a paradigm shift in wireless communications, enabling intelligent and context-aware interactions between heterogeneous devices, systems, and protocols. This workshop aims to explore the intersection of semantic technologies and wireless networking, focusing on their applications in emerging technologies such as AR/VR/XR, machine-type applications, V2V, V2X, edge intelligence, etc., and fostering the co-existence and interoperability among fundamentally diverse protocols including WiFi, 5G/6G, satellite networks. Through theoretical discussions, practical demonstrations, and collaborative activities, participants will gain insights into the design principles, implementation challenges, and potential opportunities of semantic communication-aided wireless networks.
