Age of Information Workshop - Call for Papers

Call For Papers

The freshness of information is of fundamental importance in information-update and data analytics applications (e.g., crowdsourcing, financial trading, social networks, and online learning), as well as networked monitoring and control systems (e.g., sensor networks, airplane/vehicular control, robotics networks, Internet of Things, and Cyber-Physical Systems). 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 2nd Age of Information Workshop (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 Paris, France on April 29, 2019 in conjunction with the IEEE INFOCOM Conference 2019.
