Nowadays, more and more mobile services offer great opportunities of connecting anything at any time for human beings, e.g. mobile social services, crowdsourcing, crowdsensing, mobile searching, wearable services, mobile robots, virtual reality, augmented reality, 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.

Best practice policies:
All papers must be submitted electronically, in PDF format, and uploaded on EDAS. The direct link for paper submission is https://edas.info/N28176

There are two options for the submissions, either a full paper or a short paper. We decided to allow the submission of short papers in order to accommodate the most recent research outcomes. The submissions should be formatted with single-spaced, double-column pages using at least 10 pt (or higher) size fonts on A4 or letter pages in IEEE style format. The maximum number of pages is 6 for full papers and 3 for short papers. Detailed formatting and submission instructions will be available on the conference web site (http://www.icufn.org).

Submitted papers will be reviewed by the workshop Program Committee and judged on originality, technical correctness, relevance, and quality of presentation. All accepted papers will appear in the IEEE Xplore Digital library and will be indexed by Scopus and EI Compendex only if at least one of the authors registers at the full registration rate and attends to present the paper. Also, extended versions of selected papers will be published in the following international journals (SCIE-indexed) as a special section for the ICUFN2021.

  • Wireless Personal Communications (SCIE)
  • Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing (SCIE)
  • International Journal of Distributed Sensor Networks (SCIE)
  • Mobile Information System (SCIE)
  • Sensors (SCIE)
  • Journal of Internet Technology (SCIE)
  • ICT Express (SCIE)
  • Recent Advances on Communications and Networking Technology
