FSW5G 2022

The Federated Systems & Testbeds Workshop on 5G and Beyond (FSW5G 2022)

5G and beyond networks will dramatically improve communications, latency, and enable a wide range of interactive and collaborative applications that are otherwise not possible.  The adoption of 5G and beyond networks paves the way for federated distributed platforms to provide critical end-to-end services, aiding in delivering innovative and transformative services to the Global Community. Adoption and development of such federated systems are subject to addressing several critical problems, including systems discovery, security issues, and 5G network slicing, to name a few.

The Federated Systems & Testbeds Workshop on 5G and Beyond (FSW5G) will provide a high-profile, leading-edge forum for researchers and practitioners to present technical innovations, experimental results, theoretical studies, conceptual studies, and surveys on Federated System in 5G and Beyond. The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for an interactive dialog between researchers in scientific domains and technologists and practitioners in the industry to discuss, promote, and demonstrate how recent developments in artificial intelligence, federated systems, and 5G (and beyond) systems can be used to integrate and explore various scientific and technological resources to solve critical world problems.
