Conference Overview

IEEE WF-5G

The 2018 IEEE 1st 5G World Forum (5GWF’18) in Santa Clara, California is a unique event for industry leaders, academics, and decision-making government officials. This event is designed to examine 5G technologies and applications for the benefit of society.

5G systems should unveil a novel mobile network architecture that not only improve physical data rate, but also create a new ecosystem allowing the deployment of novel services and applications. A key target is to build a novel network architecture that should support not only classical mobile broadband applications and services, but also vertical industry (e.g. Automotive systems, Smart Grid, Public Safety, Health, etc.) and other IoT-based services.

This conference aims to bring researcher from industry, academia and research to exchange their vision as well as their achieved advances towards 5G, and encourage innovative cross-domain studies, research, early deployment and large scale pilot showcases that address the challenges of 5G.
