The fifth generation of the mobile communication system (5G) is being deployed worldwide and will significantly impact the economy by 2035. Leveraged by disruptive technology enablers widely exploited by the scientific community and industry such as cloud computing, programmability,  virtualization, and network slicing. The 5G architecture enables vertical scenarios such as eMBB, URLLC,  and mMTC promoting connectivity for Telemedicine applications, Autonomous Vehicles, Internet of  Things, Smart Cities, Smart Homes, Smart Industry 4.0/5.0, Agriculture 4.0/5.0, and several others. In this implementation process, the fifth-generation mobile communication system (5G) has exposed limitations,  mainly to deal with dynamic and specialized requirements for services in the context of integrated environments.  
In the virtualization, programmability, and artificial intelligence era, new applications such as connected robots, completely autonomous vehicles, industrial internet, holographic verticals, and society,  and others impose requirements that translate as imminent challenges to be addressed and research opportunities. In this sense, the sixth generation (6G) mobile communication system is expected to improve the network's capabilities in offering strict and heterogeneous requirements for applications. It is glimpsed complete and intelligent management assisted by Artificial Intelligence (AI) in several levels of the structural block of the 6G architecture and a profound change in paradigms such as global coverage,  green networks, and significant improvements in security and privacy. Especially in dynamic topology scenarios given the integration of connectivity environments that offer connectivity anytime and anywhere.  
The 6G Network Workshop (W6G) encourages high-quality papers containing theoretical,  practical, experimental approaches or state-of-the-art advances. Also, papers addressing application scenarios or technological enablers and developments that will potentially impact the structural block of the sixth generation (6G) mobile networks. The topics of interest aim to integrate research initiatives from industry and academia looking for artifacts to discuss challenges and opportunities.

Paper Submission
The paper submission will be exclusively electronic through the JEMS system. The papers can be written in Portuguese or English, exclusively in PDF format. The text must contain up to six (6) pages,  including the abstract, figures, diagrams, references, and attachments. The format should follow the SBC  template. The W6G committee will evaluate articles submitted to the W6G. The best papers will choose for presentation and publication in the event proceedings, available on the SBC SOL platform. There will be the best paper award in the W6G. At least one of the authors of each selected paper must register for SBRC2021 and  W6G and present them at the event.
