W4: Intelligent Communication Network Technologies (ICNET2020)

Organizer: Syed Hassan Ahmed, JMA Wireless, USA
Organizer: Murad Khan, Kyungpook National University, South Korea

Abstract: Internet of Vehicles (IoV) is becoming an emerging technology for supporting autonomous vehicles, intelligent vehicles, etc. The Internet of Things (IoT) is extensively studied in the last two decades and a number of concepts are derived from it for efficient communication networks, smart homes, smart cities, smart health services and so on. As the number of vehicles operating on green and renewable energies is becoming popular and therefore controlling the operation needs further research concept such as the Internet of Energy (IoE). The concept of IoE is recently coined with the aim of providing clean energy to electric vehicles, smart homes, smart building etc.

Meanwhile, Artificial Intelligence (AI) due to the self-sustainable nature with self-governing and independent decision-making capabilities appeared as a possible alternative to achieve the aim of full autonomous communication systems. However, the current research consists of a few research articles and idea covering the concept of IoE and intelligent communication networks. Our aim in organizing this workshop is to explore intelligent communication network technologies to smartly and efficiently manage the available resources. Further, the demand for clean energy and micro-grids can be enabled for saving energy in powerful and deep saving batteries for future use. For this workshop section, we are soliciting high-quality articles covering the topic related to the Intelligent vehicular communication technologies using the IoE and IoV concepts with original results and conceptual study. The aim is to bring the novel ideas, concepts, open challenges, issues, from the researchers working the said domain.
