Reviewing Process and expected Number of Participants

Papers should be submitted through the conference site either in a [.doc] or in a [.pdf] file, via the following link:



Papers will be peer reviewed by at least three (-3-) academic/business referees (an EasyChair account is required).

They should not exceed 10 pages for papers accepted as “full” and 8 pages for papers accepted as “short”, formatted according to the well-known LNCS Springer style (http://www.springer.com/lncs).

Accepted papers will published in the SPRINGER IFIP AICT Lecture Notes in Computer Science proceedings, and they will be available on site.

It is expected that there should be at least 12-16 papers to be submitted and the “half” (i.e.: 6-8 papers) are expected to be accepted, according to the “50% acceptance” criterion.


5G-DRIVE includes 17 partners that are all actively involved in joint publications. The project has also interactive cooperation with a twin project in China, incorporating eight (-8-) major Chinese actors (China Mobile, Huawei, Ericsson China, Datang Mobile, Shanghai International Automobile City, and three research institutese) and promoting impact at international level.

5G-DRIVE has also an active framework of cooperation with other actual 5G-PPP projects (of both phase 2 and phase 3) as well as with relevant H2020 EU-funded research projects. Most of the project partners will join the 6th 5G-PINE Workshop.


MOTOR5G includes 9 partners that are actively involved in synergetic publications. The project has defined as set of pure research-oriented activities aiming to support 16 Ph.D. theses for young researchers within an interactive framework. Based on the priorities of the project, it is expected that most -if not all- of partners will join the 6th 5G-PINE Workshop.

5G-VICTORI includes 25 active partners, being in strong cooperation with other ongoing 5G-PPP projects (of both phase 2 and phase 3). The project has defined interesting use cases to assess and it is expected that contributions are to appear by recent activities.

Smart5Grid includes 24 active partners, some of which are involved in synergetic publications and related actions. Although it is actually in the early beginning of the intended actions, due to its innovative nature and relevance to the energy vertical sector, the project implicates for high potential.


In addition, several H2020 projects (such as, for example, “5G-EVE”, “5GENESIS”, “5G-HEART”, “5G-TOURS”, “5G!DRONES”,“LOCUS”, “MonB5G”, “MARSAL”,  “RESISTO”, “FASTER”, “TESTBED2”, “Cyber-Trust”) may potentially join the 6th “5G-PINE” Workshop.

The fact that the AIAI 2021 Conference is organized in Aldemar Knossos Royal, Crete, Greece at a convenient time-instance (June 25-27, 2021) provides suitable conditions for several partners to “join” the Workshop.

(Several among the members of the Workshop Program Committee can also join the Workshop either as Conference participants and/or as authors/co-authors of approved papers).

Based upon Workshop acceptance condition, the main organiser (OTE) could also check the possibility for inviting a key-note speaker, potentially a high-level expert from the European Commission in order to “attract” more participants. An equal option of inviting a representative of the Greek Government will also be investigated.

Other options (such as some parallel demos coming directly from the participating projects) could also be investigated and/or assessed at a later stage, together with the Conference organisers.
