W6: Technologies and Proof-of-Concept Activities for 5G Evolution & Beyond 5G

Organizer: Eiji Okamoto

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 (5GE) and Beyond 5G (B5G) are about to be investigated in many research entities. On top of that, research and development (R&D) activities for B5G are about to be initiated. This workshop is aiming to provide opportunities to present the latest trials and the proof-of-concept activities for 5GE and new technology concepts for B5G. Distinguished speakers from industry and academia will present their latest R&D results and discuss their perspective regarding the new directions of B5G. The discussion at the workshop is also expected to promote the exchange of new ideas among researchers.
