Flexible Networks (FlexNets) solutions have to satisfy varying spatiotemporal application demands, while reacting to the always-changing network state thanks to the unpredictable user/traffic density, wireless channel characteristics, etc. In FlexNets workshop, we aim to cover solutions towards this vision, which may exploit proactive/reactive network solutions such as Network Softwarization, Self-Organizing Networks, Software-defined Networks and Mobile BSs.
IEEE WCNC is the only IEEE conference focused exclusively on wireless research, technology, and applications. It brings together thought leaders from industry, academia, government agencies and other institutions to exchange information and ideas on advancing the state-of-the-art in wireless communications and networking. In 2018, it is organized in the heart of the 22@ technological district of Barcelona. The conference aims to serve as a catalyst in bringing together participants from academia and industry to help foster new connections and ideas among a heterogeneous community ranging from senior researchers to PhD students, or from senior executives to young startup entrepreneurs. The conference will feature a comprehensive technical program with technical tracks on various aspects related to wireless research, technology, applications and services, including emerging technologies. In addition, the conference program includes workshops, tutorials, and panel discussions on today’s state-of-the-art as well as what the wireless future will look like. An expanded industry program, including an exhibition hall showcasing the latest wireless technology, will also provide opportunities for industry professionals to share and learn about the latest ideas, trends, and product innovations in the wireless industry. The 2018 edition of this conference will be held in Barcelona on April 15-18, 2018 at the Barcelona International Convention Centre (CCIB) and will be organized by the Centre Tecnològic de Telecomunicacions de Catalunya (CTTC).
