Event Summary


This was the first international workshop between CommNet and the China FuTURE Mobile Communication Forum (aka FuTURE FORUM) on 5G and 6G Communications.

FuTURE FORUM generously hosted the workshop during the 53rd IEEE International Conference on Communications (IEEE ICC 2019) held in Shanghai, China.  The timing and location provided an ideal opportunity for academics from the UK and China to attend the workshop, network and share presentations on their recent research activities in 5G and beyond wireless communications.

The programme of talks was organised by Professor Xiaohu You (General Chair of ICC2019) of Southeast University, China, and Professor Timothy O’Farrell of the University of Sheffield, UK, with FuTURE FORUM providing organisational support.

Attended by about 30 participants from China and the UK, the workshop covered a variety of topics including new approaches to Shannon capacity for QPSK, frequency agile radios, energy efficiency in millimetre-wave massive MIMO, AI for managing resources at the wireless edge and AI for achieving energy efficiency in radio access networks.  The workshop was completed with a networking meal sponsored by FuTURE FORUM.
