Focus Period Symposium

6G – forming a better future

Akademiska Föreningen, Lund

Research related to the 6th Generation Wireless Systems (6G) comprises a wide range of topics. This focus period takes a broad perspective on the possibilities and limitations of technology available and what services and applications can be proivided by a future 6G system. Topics range from communication theory and fundamental limits via practical implementations to novel services and applications.

The goal is to close the gaps between different research disciplines, increase synergy effects and, together, identify the most critical inter/intra-disciplinary research challenges, from a 6G perspective. What are the technical issues we have to address, from that perspective? What are the possible solutions, from a technical perspective?

How should 6G be designed to, in the best way, contribute to solving of the global challenges?

The ELLIIT Focus Period Symposium is the main event of the five-week focus period, during which young international scholars, ELLIIT researchers and other well-established international academics gathered in Lund to work together in these joint research challenges. The symposium, held on November 8-10, will take place at Akademiska Föreningen in Lund. The banquet dinner will be held in the evening of the second day at Grand Hotel. 

Register to attend

Registration is free and includes the banquet dinner. The symposium has a limited number of participants, and registration will close earlier if capacity is reached. Priority will be given to researchers connected to ELLIIT and to researchers involved in the focus period.

Symposium Program

A preliminary program will be presented here shortly.
