6G – Where do we (want to) go?

Now that the 5G roll-out is picking up pace and industry is starting to think about the 5G evolution, it’s time for the community to engage in a discussion about a long-term vision for the next generation of wireless communications, ie 6G. Some ideas have already been published and the first 6G summit with participants from all big industrial players took place just last year. In order to be at the forefront of 6G and contribute to the definition of this new technology rather than acting on its outcome, 6G research in the Benelux has to be ramped up now. In this talk, a summary of recent ideas and views on 6G will be presented and the implications and potential research areas for our RF & microwave community highlighted. A lively and critical follow-on discussion is explicitly appreciated!
