Event 1: Hackathon - WINCOM 2024

WINCOM 2024 is organising a Hackathon open to students (undergraduate and postgraduate), postdoctoral researchers, engineers, or professionals. The event will focus on the challenges and innovations in wireless communications. This year, we encourage participants to explore data-driven solutions to current problems in wireless communication, leveraging the latest advancements in deep learning.

Event Overview

The WINCOM 2024 Hackathon aims to foster collaboration and creativity. Participants can bring their unique datasets and ideas to address the challenges in network technology, IoT, and telecommunications and provide data-driven solutions. Teams will have the opportunity to develop research prototypes and engineering applications, showcasing their innovative solutions and novel concepts.

Participation Details

Team Formation: Participants are encouraged to form teams of up to four members. Interested individuals can also join existing teams during the initial webinar.

Idea Submission: Teams must submit their project ideas by 30 June 2024. This submission should outline the problem area and identify the dataset.

Schedule and Important Dates

  • Idea Submission Deadline: 30 June 2024
  • Initial Webinar: An introductory webinar will be held remotely on 12 July 2024. This session will provide comprehensive information about the hackathon rules, available resources, and the evaluation criteria.

An ad-hoc committee will evaluate the different demos/prototypes during the conference. An award for the best demo for engineering application and research prototype will be presented at the WINCOM 2024 in the closing ceremony.

    Submission Guidelines for Demo

    Prospective contributors are expected to turn in a Demo proposal as a 2-page paper, preferably incorporating a demo system architecture illustration. Demo papers will be reviewed and accepted papers will not be included in electronic conference proceedings.

    Demo papers should be submitted via the form below by June 16, 2024; acceptance notifications will be sent no later than June 24, 2024. The Demo proposals will be reviewed by the WINCOM 2024 Innovation projects and demo program committee and will be approved based on the availability of demo space as well as on the following criteria:

  • Significance of the applied research contribution
  • Potential impact on the audience
  • Quality of the proposed implementation
  • Presentation quality
  • At least one author of each accepted demo proposal is required to register for the WINCOM 2024 and present their Innovation projects and demo at the scheduled Demo session.
