IEEE Infocom CNERT Workshop 2023 Best Paper Runner Up

We are thrilled to announce that our paper, titled ‘On Enhancing Transport & Logistics Sectors with 5G Testbeds and Edge Network Applications (EdgeApps),’ has received the Best Paper Runner-Up award at the 10th International Workshop on Computer and Networking Experimental Research using Testbeds (CNERT), held in conjunction with the IEEE International Conference on Computer Communications on May 20, 2023. In this paper, we define a 5G testbed tailored to T&L vertical services, which are designed and developed using the concept of 5G-based Edge Network Applications defined within the European project VITAL-5G. In addition to the testbed, we also describe the interaction with the testbed and its accessibility via the VITAL-5G platform, which supports T&L actors to experiment and validate their services within the real-life 5G-based T&L environment (e.g., sea ports, river ports, and warehouses). We are proud of this achievement and remain committed to advancing innovative solutions through EU-funded projects.
