Call for Papers

EAI 6GN 2021 will be held as an on-site conference with an option to present remotely (or as a fully-fledged online conference, if the situation prevents the event from taking place on-site).

Although we will miss having everyone meet and connect in person, we feel strongly that knowledge exchange must continue, if not more so. That is why Accepted Authors who are unable to attend the event in person will be given an option to present remotely. In any case, all matters related to publication and indexing will remain unchanged. EAI is actively monitoring the COVID-19 situation to ensure the safety, comfort and quality of experience for attendees and a successful course of the event in 2021.
Accepted Authors will be notified about the final decision regarding the conference setting before the Camera-ready deadline.


Nowadays, a majority of communication services provide great opportunities of connecting Internet of Things (IoT) at any time, e.g. mobile edge computing, virtual reality, augmented reality, mobile social services, mobile searching, mobile robots, unmanned system etc. The fifth-generation (5G) has made, and will continue to make, contributions to meet the requirements of explosive data traffic in wireless and mobile communications. Moreover, B5G/6G will drive another wave of new trends, not only to optimize the spectrum and spatial bandwidth, but also to create more new technologies and applications. The opportunities and challenges of 5G/B5G/6G are continuing to attract the attention of academics, industries, and governments.

We invite high quality original research papers describing recent and expected challenges or discoveries along with potential intelligent solutions for 5G/B5G/6G. We welcome both theoretical and experimental papers. We expect the papers of the conference to serve as valuable references for a large audience from both academia and industry. Both original, unpublished contributions and survey/tutorial types of articles are encouraged.

All accepted authors are eligible to submit an extended version in a fast track of:

Additional publication opportunities:

Paper submission

Papers should be submitted through EAI ‘Confy+‘ system, and have to comply with the Springer format (see Author’s kit section).

All conference papers undergo a thorough peer review process prior to the final decision and publication. This process is facilitated by experts in the Technical Program Committee during a dedicated conference period. Standard peer review is enhanced by EAI Community Review which allows EAI members to bid to review specific papers. All review assignments are ultimately decided by the responsible Technical Program Committee Members while the Technical Program Committee Chair is responsible for the final acceptance selection.
