CLEEN2022 Workshop

International Workshop on Cloud Technologies and Energy Efficiency in Mobile Communication Networks

How cloudy and green will mobile network and services be?

In conjunction with PIMRC 2022, 12–15 September 2022, Virtual Conference

Call for Papers

This workshop explores novel concepts to allow for flexibly centralised radio access networks using cloud-processing based on open IT platforms, exploiting network virtualization and multi-access edge computing technologies that are recognized as key enablers for the definition of future 5G systems. The aim is to allow for a guaranteed high quality of experience for mobile access via efficient management of cloud resources and services, and to allow for a future network evolution focused on energy efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

Note: the TPC duties will consist in taking care of the CLEEN work programme. The papers will be part of the Conference Proceedings and they will appear in IEEE Xplore. The CLEEN2022 Workshop TPC Chair is fully responsible for the review process, in collaboration with the TPC co-chair and the TPC members.

In addition to the presentation at CLEEN2022, at the discretion of the CLEEN workshop general chairs, some papers could be also further “awarded”, based on technical merit and outstanding relevance, e.g. by selecting them for publication in special issues of international journals or magazines (to be defined by the chairs). Further details will be provided soon in that perspective.
