First Workshop on Intelligent User Plane and In-Network Computing for 6G (IUP-INC-6G)

In-Network Computing (INC) is an emerging concept, that has been gaining relevance in the last years, among others due to the ongoing advancements in programmable networking hardware (e.g., smart NICs) and the development of network programming languages, such as P4. INC has an incredibly wide range of application areas, including robotics, video streaming, industrial IoT, Machine Learning, and many more. It can support novel 6G use-cases by its potential to optimize various network KPIs, such as the end-to-end latency, network traffic volume, or the UE energy efficiency. The workshop organizers encourage the submission of practical papers that present measurements and performance studies relating to IUP/INC, as well as conceptual papers focusing on novel architectures and protocols for realizing INC (including control plane und user plane enhancements). The workshop shall attract authors and attendees from academia and industry likewise and provide them with a common stage for discussing future directions on the topic.
