Call for Papers

EAI CROWNCOM 2023 will be held as an on-site conference and if needed, Accepted Authors who are unable to attend the event in person will be given an option to present remotely.


CROWNCOM 2023 aims at presenting new research results and perspectives of cognitive radio networks, and will provide a forum for exchanging ideas, discussing solutions, and sharing experiences among researchers and experts from academia, industry, standards, and policy.

Moving from the wider scope embraced in the last edition, the main scope of CROWNCOM 2023 is AI-EnabledRadio and Networks. Cognitive Radio included since its original definition concepts that go beyond the specific aspects of radio flexibility, dynamic spectrum access, and efficient spectrum sharing, that constituted the core research topics on Cognitive Radio in its early years. The new 5G paradigm and its expected evolutionsinto6Gand beyond led however to increased interest in the wider role that cognition can play in increasing system flexibility through access to rich context information, leading to the explosion of research and industry proposals to introduce additional intelligence in networks, typically by means of machine learning and big data analysis.

In this context, CROWNCOM 2023 will encompass all research aspects related to 5G and beyond systems that may benefit from the introduction of cognitive mechanisms, as well as communication algorithms, protocols and technologies that can enable the introduction and efficient deployment of such mechanisms. Contributions focusing on research advances, examples of state-of-the-art industrial deployments and contributions to standards and policies will be welcome, in order to ensure cross-contamination between all the communities historically involved in CROWNCOM.

EAI CROWNCOM 2023 will be held by Hebei Normal University in Shijiazhuang City, capital of theHebeiProvince. Shijiazhuang City is the only provincial capital city being oriented as a key commercial port inChinaanda node of national regional logistics network. Shijiazhuang City is approved as the national science and technology innovation demonstration city, national semiconductor lighting industry base, national satellite navigation industry base, national animation industry base, national biomedical industry base, national civilized city, national forest city, national excellent tourism city.

All accepted authors are eligible to submit an extended version in a fast track of:

Additional publication opportunities:

Paper submission

Papers should be submitted through EAI ‘Confy+‘ system, and have to comply with the Springer format (see Author’s kit section).

  • Regular papers should be up to 10-12+ pages in length.
  • Short papers should be 6-11 pages in length.

All conference papers undergo a thorough peer review process prior to the final decision and publication. This process is facilitated by experts in the Technical Program Committee during a dedicated conference period. Standard peer review is enhanced by EAI Community Review which allows EAI members to bid to review specific papers. All review assignments are ultimately decided by the responsible Technical Program Committee Members while the Technical Program Committee Chair is responsible for the final acceptance selection. You can learn more about Community Review here.
