Virtual
Categories: Science, Engineering
Event Date: 2020-09-10 to 2020-09-12 Abstract Due: 2020-05-23

Note: The 5G World Forum has decided to make our 2020 event fully virtual to eliminate uncertainty in light of Covid-19 and to ensure the health, safety, and well-being of our global community. With plenty of time to prepare, the goal is to make our virtual event as rich and comprehensive as our in-person events, including multiple tracks and exhibition opportunities for industry. Registration fees will be reduced, and we remain committed to the publication and indexing of all accepted and registered papers in IEEE Xplore. Stay tuned for the precise details of the virtual 5G World Forum!

SCOPE

The 2020 IEEE 3rd 5G World Forum (5GWF'20) in Bangalore, India, seeks contributions on how to nurture and cultivate 5G technologies and applications for the benefit of society. (http://ieee-wf-5g.org/)

5G systems should unveil a novel mobile network architecture that not only improves physical data rate, but also creates 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. Intelligent Transport, Industrial IoTs, eHealth, etc.) and other 5G-based services.

This conference aims to bring experts 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.

[The 5G World Forum recognizes that COVID-19 is creating a feeling of uncertainty around global events. This global health crisis is a unique challenge that has impacted many members of the IEEE family. These are difficult times, but we will get through them by working together. Thank you for your support of our shared mission to advance technology for humanity.

Please know that we are committed to the publication and indexing of accepted and registered papers of 2020 IEEE 3rd 5G World Forum (5GWF'20) in the conference proceedings and IEEE Xplore Digital Library. IEEE Xplore is an Abstract and Indexing (A&I) Partner with Elsevier Scopus, so any paper included in Xplore will also be available to Scopus. IEEE takes the protection of intellectual property very seriously. All submissions will be screened for plagiarism using Cross Check. By submitting your work you agree to allow IEEE to screen your work for plagiarism: http://www.crossref.org/crosscheck/index.html]

START-UPS

This initiative is meant to actively promote the engagement of start-ups and new businesses in pioneering innovation in 5G. The 5G challenges are pretty much known by now such as latency and reliability, something of a holy grail. Shaving latency down to 1ms for a host of applications from virtual reality games to tele-medicine will be another one of the toughest challenges of 5G. Start-ups are invited to showcase their innovation in this track, sending e-mail to the contact persons
