With the widespread use of mobile devices and the growing demand for user services, we have witnessed a significant surge in data traffic in communications and networks. In the field of communications and networks, traditional discriminative AI has already played an indispensable role in maintaining and enhancing network efficiency and reliability. Recently, Generative AI (GAI), as a new paradigm for data generating, processing, and regenerating, has spawned a lot of applications and been used in various scenarios, such as Chat-GPT for natural language interaction and Stable Diffusion for image generation. Distinct from discriminative AI, which improves network performance by analyzing or categorizing existing data, GAI employs cutting-edge generative techniques such as Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs), Transformers, and diffusion models. These innovative methods enable GAI to generate unique, personalized solutions for communication and network optimization.

Investigating novel GAI algorithms to revolutionize communication and network strategies for the next generation of mobile services is crucial. These innovative approaches promise to significantly enhance the functionality, security, and privacy of communications and networks, catering to the needs of next-generation communications and networks, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), Vehicular Networks, Space-Air-Ground Integrated Networks (SAGIN), Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) networks, Intelligent Reflecting Surface (IRS) aided communication and various physical layer communications, etc. As we delve into these various applications in communications and networks, the scalability, adaptability, and intelligence GAI brings can redefine our expectations for next-generation communications and networks. Although GAI has shown great potential in next-generation communication networks, it also faces several challenges. The questions could be as follows: (1) Why is GAI deemed appropriate for communications and networks? (2) Which specific challenges within communications and networks can GAI tackle? (3) how can GAI be effectively utilized in communications and networks? Therefore, in view of the recent surge in relevant research, this workshop aims to explore the burgeoning intersection of GAI in communications and networks, with a focus on GAI by sharing recent research findings, technological advancements, and future trends from academia and industry.
