WONS 2025 20th Wireless On-demand Network systems and Services Conference 27th January - 29th January 2025, Hintertux, Zillertal, Tyrol, Austria

Call for Papers

Wireless on-demand network systems and services have become mainstream technologies that shape the networked world of the future. Different types of wireless LANs, both sub-6 GHz and in higher frequency bands, as well as such established technologies as Bluetooth LE, LTE-Direct, LTE ProSE, NR sidelink, NFC, and optical links are the cornerstone of networking paradigms including NextG cellular, mesh and sensor networks, cloud networks, vehicular networks, non-terrestrial networks, and in-body networks. The challenges of this exciting research field are numerous. These include providing robust services in highly dynamic, mobile, and extreme environments, how to minimize energy demands or zero out battery usage in favor of renewable energy sources, how to smartly blend multiple wireless technologies available to a network node (including across radically different bands), and how to make wireless on-demand networks and services self-configurable, adaptive, self-organizing, and self-healing in a variety of different context, each exhibiting its own peculiar constraints. IFIP WONS, now at its tenth edition, has established itself as a high-quality forum to address the above and related challenges. WONS 2025 aims to continue providing a global platform for rich interactions between experts in their fields, discussing innovative contributions in a stimulating environment. This announcement solicits original contributions of high-quality research providing novel insights on all aspects of wireless on-demand networks and systems. Topics of interest comprise, but are not limited to:

  • 5G and 6G networks
  • Autonomous and Self-Driving Networks
  • Cloud/edge/fog computing and networking
  • Cognitive radio networks
  • Cross-layer design
  • Data analytics and ML/AI-driven network systems
  • Digital Twins and Simulation-Based Design

Paper submission
August 31, 2024
Acceptance notification
November 1, 2024
Camera ready
December 1, 2024

Manuscript Submission

Authors are invited to submit double-column long papers (up to 8 pages) and short papers (up to 4 pages) as a PDF file using the standard IEEE template, with a font size no smaller than 10pt and using A4 paper size, wich can be established with this Latex option.


Short papers should present future research directions and ongoing work with visionary, innovative ideas; accepted short papers will be presented in a separate session at the conference and will be included in the conference proceedings. Submitted papers must not have been published elsewhere and must not be currently under review by another conference or journal. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper. All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 independent experts in the field, following a single-blind process.

Review Process

We will have at least 3 reviews per paper and we count on the TPC members to do the reviews themselves in order to ensure high quality and comprehensive reviews.
