ICDT Integrated 6G Networks: Embracing Native-AI and Digital Twin

Scope and Topics:

To meet the  ultimate experience requirement of intelligent applications, 6G network should be redesigned in an ICDT converged framework. Thecore capability of 6G network will extend from information delivery to end-to-end information processing. All the heterogeneous terminals and network nodes will participate in the information processing, involving information acquisition, delivery, computing, storage, utilization and security. This requires the 6G network to have extreme capabilities of communication, computing, intelligence and security, as well as the enhanced capabilities such as sensing. This in turn requires an extremely simple network architecture for 6G with the autonomous operation and maintenance capabilities.

Outlining the solutions for a simple ICDT converged 6G network architecture with much more functionalitics is a rather challenging task but also an interesting work. Recently, preliminary viewpoints and thoughts on 6G concept, possible architecture and potential technologies have been reported from both academia and industry among which native Al and digital twin have attracted considerable attentions from both academia and industry as two pillars for building 6G autonomous network.

The workshop focuses on the feature, functionalities, potential technologies for Al-native 6G network under digital twin framework. Topics of interest include (but not limited to) the following:
• Al models and algorithms for wireless communications
• Al as a service and quality of Al service
• Al air interface and wireless environment sensing
• Energy-efficient end-to-end Al computing towards green 6G
• Digital twin network architecture and technologies
• Architecture and standards for integration of digital twins in future communications and networking
• Advanced communication-computation architecture for digital twins empowered future network
