However, there is still room for societal and technological improvements, especially for addressing the digital divide that continues to exist in the world. Tackling uneven global distribution and ensuring a better world requires super-connecting the already connected and connecting the unconnected, while guaranteeing an impressive quality of experience worldwide. Clearly, future wireless communication systems must effectively support a universal and ubiquitous cyber physical infrastructure.

The huge variety of intelligent applications envisaged for a wireless future will require a novel network structure, spectrum access schemes, and resource allocation solutions, while factoring in energy efficiency and security/privacy considerations. Thus, highly innovative wireless solutions with varied quality specifications when it comes to service requirements have become paramount in ensuring a greener world. Examples of some technological breakthroughs include intelligent surfaces, semantic communications, and digital twin technology, to name a few.

Why Attend WWRF 48?

WWRF is a unique forum which brings together the wireless community to tackle key research challenges. As an attendee, you will be able to: (i) define your future wireless strategies by leveraging the insights of industry leaders, (ii) ease future standardization by harmonizing research views at the research stage, (iii) identify new trends and ideas in wireless communications, and (iv) share insights on research directions and visions for the Wireless World.

The largest emirate of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Abu Dhabi is the capital and sits on almost 87% of the combined territory of the UAE. With its vast and extensive coastline, Abu Dhabi is a luxurious metropolitan city that combines traditional hospitality and flair with the modernism of 21st century. The city features some of the world’s best cutting-edge and historic architecture making it a must-visit destination.

In following with the theme of this workshop, we especially encourage submissions which aim to broaden the discussion outside of traditional security challenges and approaches. Examples could include, but are not limited to:
  • Bio-inspired security solutions.
  • Visual/movement-based security solutions.
  • Security techniques based on multi-modal sensor fusion.
  • Underwater communications security.
  • Visual Light Communication (VLC)-based security.
  • Quantum-based security.
Well reasoned arguments or preliminary evaluations are sufficient for this workshop.
