The vision of Future Communications Summit is a top-quality research workshop, with the support of IEEE, oriented to identify key research areas in information and communication technologies in the mid-future of 7 to 10 years. It will follow from the previous event held in 2017, and 2019, considering that now 5G is in the market and we need to Strengthen the Path Towards 6G.
The Summit will cover multiple research lines, roughly structured along Physical Layer, Network and Control Plane, and Applications and Services. Each research line will have a keynote speaker and a set of sessions. All sessions will be organized as panels of distinguished speakers from academia, industry and High-level European Commission officials presenting their viewpoints on a subarea within each track. Panels will be oriented to encourage interaction among the panelists and between the panelists and the audience.
Based on international experts’ public presentations and contributions, a white paper on seminal research directions for the communications field will be produced. This white paper will be widely distributed to the community. It will be used as input by the European Commission, ITU-T and other relevant stakeholders to contribute to mid-term research directions.
