The First Workshop on the Age of Information - Call For Papers

Jump to other IT Society Websites:

The Age of Information is a new concept that can serve as a performance metric for characterizing the freshness of information, as a means for fundamental research, and as a tool in numerous applications. Recent research advances on the Age of Information suggest that many well-known design principles (e.g., for providing high throughput and low delay) that lead to the success of traditional data networks are inappropriate and need to be re-examined for enhancing information freshness in the rapidly emerging real-time applications.

The 1st Workshop on the Age of Information (AoI Workshop)  will provide a forum where researchers and technical experts can share the latest research insights, and present key and emerging results on the Age of Information, and identify new challenges and opportunities. The AoI Workshop will be held in Honolulu, HI, USA on April 16, 2018 in conjunction with the IEEE INFOCOM Conference 2018.

Topics of Interest  include, but are not limited to:

•  Age of Information Analysis and Optimization

•  Age-based Source and Channel Coding

•  Age of Information and Information Theory

•  Real-time Signal Tracking and Estimation

•  Age of Channel State Information

•  Age of Information in Robotics and Control Systems

•  Age of Information and Security

•  Age of Information and Networking

•  Age of Information and Game Theory

•  Data Freshness in Caches and Databases

•  Fresh Big Data

•  Fresh Data for Online Learning

•  Applications of Age of Information

Submission Guidelines

The AoI Workshop calls for original and unpublished papers no longer than 6 pages. The reviews will be single blind. The manuscripts should be formatted in standard IEEE camera-ready format (double-column, 10-pt font) and be submitted as PDF files (formatted for 8.5x11 inch paper). Manuscripts should be submitted as PDF files through the EDAS website.
