-= CALL FOR PAPERS =-

The 1st ACM International Workshop on Future Industrial Communication Networks (FICN 2018)
in conjunction with ACM MobiCom, 2018, New Delhi, India

https://sigmobile.org/mobicom/2018/workshops/ficn/



-----
Scope
-----

A robust, reliable, and intelligent communication network integrating
both wired and wireless technologies forms the backbone of the 4th
industrial revolution. Such systems, however, face a variety of
challenges that range from realizing very large-scale networks to
critical systems that require reliable and minimal latency in
communication. Industrial networks are often required to support very
low-data rate and low-power devices that are spread over tens of
kilometers. On the other hand, many next generation networks will handle
very high capacity traffic for applications that support virtual and
augmented reality-based solutions. Moreover, due to mobility of
workers (both human and robots), mobile network communication
(with or without infrastructure) also becomes critically important.
ACM FICN aims to address some of these critical challenges in the
context of industrial networks.

ACM FICN seeks original, novel, and previously unpublished (and
currently not under consideration anywhere else) papers that address the
challenges faced by modern industrial networks. Submitted papers will be
peer-reviewed by eminent members of the Technical Program Committee
where technical merit, novelty, timeliness, and relevance to the workshop
shall be considered.

Topics of interest to the FICN workshop include, but are not limited to:

- Autonomous and intelligent intent-based networks
- Critical communication network and systems
- Industry 4.0 communication systems and related standards
- Green communication and battery-saving systems
- Large-scale sensor networks and industrial IoT (IIoT) applications
- 5G and industrial requirements
- Reliable and time sensitive networks
- Industrial applications of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) networks
- Heterogeneous networks involving modern and legacy (non IP-based)
equipment
- Bid and design phases of communication networks (optimization &
coverage)
- Low-power wide area machine-to-machine networks
- Software-defined networking (SDN) for industry
- Condition monitoring, analytics, and prognosis for industrial systems
- Cybersecurity: dissemination, identification, and defense against
industrial malware/botnets
- Test-beds and real-life measurements for highly scalable industrial
applications

Important Dates
---------------

Paper submission: June 29, 2018
Notification of acceptance: July 20, 2018
Camera-ready: August 10, 2018
Workshop date: October 29 or November 02, 2018 (to be confirmed soon)


---------------------
Submission Guidelines
---------------------

Submitted papers must not exceed six (6) double-column pages (including
the title, list of author(s), figures, tables, references,and appendices,
if any) and must adhere to the general ACM MobiCom conference submission
guidelines. The review process will be single-blinded, which means
submitted papers must contain name(s) and affiliation(s) of all the
authors. All submissions must be in PDF format; no other formats will be
reviewed. ACM provides LaTeX and MS Word templates to help you draft the
paper. However, you are solely responsible to verify that all guidelines
have been followed.

At least one author of each accepted paper need to register and present
the paper at the workshop. All presented papers will be published in the
proceedings of ACM MobiCom 2018 and will be available in the ACM Digital
Library.

See https://sigmobile.org/mobicom/2018/workshops/ficn/index.html#submission
for further details. For any query, please send an email to the
organizers with "FICN2018" in the subject line.
