About BROADNETS 2024

The current roll-out of 5G mobile internet networks continues to drive forward smart services, machine-to-machine communications, and connected transport. The city’s technology industry focus includes the cloud, big data analytics, and mobility – most notably in the field of autonomous transport. With the evolution of 5G over the last few years, the term ‘5G’ means different things to different groups. To the consumer, it’s all been about faster public networks and downloads via 5G NSA (non-standalone); for the new use-cases, the endeavor was to build upon high speeds and ultra-low latency facilities, building machine-to-machine and private networks; and for the R&D community, effort went into evolving new software-defined radio (SDR) algorithms, PHY solutions, and applicable use cases. However, the 5G SA (standalone) private networks revolution did not move to deployment as quickly as hoped to open the era of the Internet of Everything. Visible Light Communication (VLC) and Light Fidelity (LiFi) technologies are among the potential candidates that are expected to be utilized in future 5G networks due to their indoor energy-efficient communications.

The scope of this conference is the 5G-enabled digital society. As one of the important infrastructures of the digital economy, some important progress in key technologies has been made for 5G networks. For different digital social scenarios, key technologies, scenarios, and practical application systems are derived from the combination of 5G, big data, cloud computing, and artificial intelligence technologies. In addition, 5G network and information security for the digital society is also one of the focuses of this conference. It brings together thought leaders from industry, academia, and other institutions to exchange information and ideas on advancing the state-of-the-art in wireless communications and networking.


We seek novel, innovative, and exciting work in areas including but not limited to:

  • 5G/6G and Use cases of 5G/6G systems
  • Software defined networking-enabled system
  • Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled Smart Systems
  • Cloud-to-things system
  • Edge cooperative computing Fog computing
  • Vehicle networks
  • Smart City Smart Grid
  • Digital twin Distributed systems security
  • Trust Access Control
  • Data privacy and integrity


All registered papers will be submitted for publishing by Springer and made available through SpringerLink Digital Library: BROADNETS Conference Proceedings.

Proceedings will be submitted for inclusion in leading indexing services, such as Web of Science, Compendex, Scopus, DBLP, EU Digital Library, Google Scholar, IO-Port, MathSciNet, Inspec, and Zentralblatt MATH.
