SCOPE AND MOTIVATION
The IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC) 2021 will be held on 14-18 June 2021 in Montreal, QC, Canada. Themed “Connectivity – Security – Privacy”, this flagship conference of the IEEE Communications society will feature a comprehensive high-quality technical program including expert keynotes, symposia, and a variety of tutorials and workshops. ICC 2021 will also include an attractive Industry program aimed at practitioners, with keynotes and panels from prominent research, industry and government leaders, business and industry panels, and vendor exhibits.
We invite the submission of workshop proposals. The aim of the conference workshops is to emphasize emerging topics not specifically covered in the main symposia. Workshops should highlight current topics related to technical and business issues in communications and networking, and should include a mix of regular papers, invited presentations, and panels that encourage the participation of attendees in active discussion.
The ICC 2021 series of half and full-day workshops will highlight current topics related to technical and business issues in communications and networking, and will include a mix of regular papers, invited presentations, and panels that encourage the participation of attendees in active discussion.
