Call for Papers


Wireless on-demand network systems and services have become mainstream technology, one that keeps shaping the networked world of the future. Different types of wireless LANs, both sub-6 GHz and in higher frequency bands, as well as such established technologies as Bluetooth LE, LTE-Direct, NFC, and optical links are the cornerstone of networking paradigms including NextG cellular, mesh and sensor networks, cloud networks, vehicular networks, non-terrestrial networks and in-body networks.

The challenges of this exciting research field are numerous. These include providing robust services in highly dynamic and extreme environments, how to minimize energy demands or zero out battery usage in favor of renewable energy sources, how to smartly blend multiple wireless technologies available to a network node (including across radically different bands), and how to make wireless on-demand networks and services self-configurable, adaptive, self-organizing, and self-healing in a wealth of different context, each exhibiting its own peculiar constraints.

IFIP WONS, now at its eighteenth edition, has established itself as a high quality forum to address the above and related challenges. WONS 2023 aims at continuing to provide a global platform for rich interactions between experts in their fields, discussing innovative contributions in a stimulating environment.

This announcement solicits original contributions of high-quality research providing novel insights on all aspects of wireless on-demand networks and systems. Topics of interest comprise, but are not limited to:

  • 5G and 6G networks
  • Cloud/edge/fog computing and networking
  • Cognitive radio networks
  • Cross-layer design
  • Data analytics and ML/AI-driven network systems
  • Heterogeneous wireless networks
  • Joint communications, networking, and sensing
  • Implementations and testbeds
  • Internet of Things
  • Intra-body and biomedical on-demand systems
  • Integration of different wireless technologies
  • Localization and mobility management
  • Mobile computing and services
  • Network and service management
  • Non-terrestrial (aerial, space, underwater, …) networks
  • Novel architectures, protocols, applications and services
  • Open source software, open source hardware and open data
  • Optical and visible light wireless networks
  • Performance evaluation through simulations, emulations and real-world experiments
  • Pervasive and ubiquitous computing
  • Quantum computing and networking
  • QoS and QoE aspects
  • Security, privacy, and trust
  • Social and economic aspects
  • Sustainable networks and distributed ML/AI services

Save The Dates


Paper registration: 30 Sept. 2022 Paper submission: 7 Oct. 2022
Acceptance notification: 30 Nov. 2022 Camera ready: 16 Dec. 2022



Manuscript Submission


Authors are invited to submit double-column long papers (up to 8 pages) and short papers (up to 4 pages) as a PDF file using the standard IEEE template, with a font size no smaller than 10pt. Short papers should present future research directions and ongoing work with visionary, innovative ideas; accepted short papers will be presented in a separate session at the conference and will be included in the conference proceedings. Submitted papers must not have been published elsewhere and must not be currently under review by another conference or journal. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper. All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 independent experts in the field, following a single-blind process.


Review Process

We will have at least 3 reviews per paper and we count on the TPC members to do the reviews themselves in order to ensure high quality and comprehensive reviews.
