Abstract: The 5th generation (5G) cellular communication systems are just launched in 2019. New technology concepts for the next generation mobile communications including 5G Evolution and Beyond 5G (B5G) are about to be investigated in many research entities. On top of that, research and development activities are about to be initiated. In these regards, this workshop is aiming to provide opportunities to present the latest trials and the proof-of-concept activities for next generation mobile communications. Distinguished speakers from industry as well as from academia will present their latest research and development results and will prove their perspective regarding the new directions of mobile communications. Through the discussion at the workshop, it is also expected to promote the exchange of new ideas among researchers.
