2nd International Workshop on Time-Sensitive and Deterministic Networking (TENSOR) 2021

June 21, 2021

Scope of the workshop

Time-sensitive deterministic communications constitutes an emerging topic with significant interest from industry and various application domains, such as industrial networks, automotive communications, mobile and wireless Networks, and service provider networks. Time-sensitive deterministic communications are expected to provide a solid underpinning that will support modern applications connectivity in multiple and distinct use cases and operational environments. The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers from academia and industry in order to investigate challenging aspects in the area of time-sensitive deterministic communications, as well as identify future research directions for ultra-low latency communications. Open issues and key innovations will be discussed for both network performance and network management related aspects of deterministic communications.
