Call For Workshop Proposal

Submit a Workshop Proposal

In addition to exciting technical symposia, tutorials, industry forums and exhibitions, IEEE ICC 2025 will feature a series of half and full-day workshops. The ICC 2025 workshops will highlight current topics related to technical and business issues in communications and networking, and will include a mix of regular papers, invited presentations, and panels that encourage the participation of attendees in active discussion.

We invite the submission of workshop proposals. The aim of the conference workshops is to emphasize emerging topics not specifically covered in the main symposia. Workshops should highlight current topics related to technical and business issues in communications and networking, and should include a mix of regular papers, invited presentations, and panels that encourage the participation of attendees in active discussion.
