W13: Technologies and Proof-of-Concept Activities for 6G 2022 (TPoC6G 2022)

Co-chair: Eiji Okamoto, Nagoya Institute of Technology, Japan
Co-chair: Satoshi Suyama, NTT DOCOMO, Japan
Co-chair: Yuang Chang, Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan
Co-chair: Koichi Adachi, The University of Electro-Communications, Japan

Abstract: The 5th generation (5G) mobile communication system was just launched in 2019. New technologies and their technical concepts for 5G Evolution (5GE) (5G-Advanced in 3GPP) and the 6th generation (6G) mobile communication system are about to be investigated in many research entities. On top of them, research and development activities for 6G are about to be initiated. This workshop is aiming to provide opportunities to present the latest wireless and mobile network technologies and the proof-of-concept (PoC) activities for 5GE and 6G. Distinguished speakers from industry and academia will present their latest research and development results and discuss their perspectives regarding the new directions towards 6G. The discussion at the workshop is also expected to promote the exchange of new ideas among researchers.
