The unprecedented and rapid growth of smart devices/data traffic/emerging applications has caused severe challenges in the transmission design and resource management for 6G networks. On one hand, green communication plays an essential role to realize the energy-efficient information transmission and processing, both environmentally and economically. To achieve it, an alternative method is to reduce the energy consumption involved in wireless communications and network protocols, while another way is to exploit the emerging energy harvesting technology based on wind/solar/RF signals, to realize the sustainable wireless communication and network. On the other hand, due to the advantages of achieving high-dimension analysis and sequential decision-making, the artificial intelligence (AI) technique, such as supervised/unsupervised/reinforcement learning, becomes a promising method to address the resource manage for wireless network, especially concerning the heterogenous and large-scale networks. Thus, it is highly desired to achieve the green and intelligent communication and networking for the next-generation wireless networks.
This track focuses on the emerging and innovative technologies, from the perspectives of network architecture, advanced communication techniques, algorithm and protocol design, and application development, to achieve green and intelligent communication networks. We solicit original, high-quality, and unpublished research papers on topics including, but not limited to:
Energy-efficient network architectures/protocols/transmission techniques for 6G
