FAU Center for CA-AI members co-organize annually (since 2017) an IEEE-sponsored workshop on Wireless Communications and Networking in Extreme Environments (IEEE WCNEE) to bring together academic researchers and industrial players to share their research findings and technical contributions, from the physical all the way to the application layer in realizing underwater, aerial, underground, intra-body, rural and space wireless communication networks with a focus on bridging the gaps between theory, algorithms, prototypes, testbeds, demonstration and production networks.
