6G Communications, Satellites and Navigation, Sensing, and Services – Towards an interdisciplinary and sustainable 6G Edge-Cloud continuum

The definition of a sustainable 6G ecosystem requires an interdisciplinary debate that can bring together experts from different fields, including communications, sensing, human-centric and sustainable services. Driving this vision from a technology perspective is the use of virtualisation and softwarisation to support many active devices while integrating a high degree of adaptability. EuCNC (European Conference on Networks and Communications) CONASENSE 2024 focuses on the need to address such adaptation from a cross-layer perspective, where computation and networking are intertwined via softwarization and via an AI-based knowledge plane.

The main objective of the workshop is to bring together an interdisciplinary perspective on 6G, stemming from research being developed in Europe and other continents. The workshop will be driven by the 6G CONASENSE platform, with the support of the HE CODECO (cognitive continuum), HE NEMO (next generation meta-OS) and HE INSTAR (cross-country standardisation) projects.

The workshop proposes to bring together novel work across complementary 6G perspectives: communications; satellites and navigation; sensing; 6G use-cases and services.
Derived from the workshop, the organizers shall edit an open access book with chapters based on the best presentations and focusing on the technological advancements and standardization. The book will be part of the CONASENSE book series, edited by River publishers
