EUCNC - 6G Summit @ Porto, Portugal

The 2021 Joint EuCNC & 6G Summit, initiated this year, builds on putting together two successful conferences in the area of telecommunications: EuCNC, in its 30th edition of a series, supported by the European Commission; the 6G Summit, in its 3rd edition, originated from the 6G Flagship programme in Finland, one of the very first in its area. The conference is sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society and by the European Association for Signal Processing, and focuses on all aspects of telecommunications ranging from 5G deployment and mobile IoT to 6G exploration and future communications systems and networks, including experimentation and testbeds, and applications and services. It brings together cutting-edge research and world-renown industries and businesses, globally attracting in the last years more than 1 300 delegates from more than 40 countries all over the world, to present and discuss the latest results, and an exhibition space of more than 1 500 m2 with more than 70 exhibitors, for demonstrating the technology developed in the area, namely within research projects from EU R&I programmes.

The Organizing Committee, with full support of the European Commission, currently plans on holding the conference in Porto with a full in-person attendance. We will keep regularly monitoring the situation related to COVID-19 and update the website accordingly, as soon as new information is made available. The format of the event may change to remote attendance or to a mixed one, depending on the conditions, since safety and well-being of all conference participants is our top priority.

Urban future conference @ Rotterdam, Netherlands
Jun 16 – Jun 18 all-day

urban futureThe URBAN FUTURE global conference is Europe’s largest event for sustainable cities. But it is also so much more than that. It’s a community of passionate CityChangers from all over the world.
Active, passionate and visionary decision-makers – we call them CityChangers – are the ones who drive change and create sustainable urban spaces.
Are you making your city greener, happier, healthier, and more sustainable? Let’s get going then! Join the revolution for better cities and be part of UFGC21 in Rotterdam.

The four focus areas are changing from year to year, taking into consideration any input we get from local and international stakeholders.
The next UFGC edition in Rotterdam will shape around the following core themes.

Whether you want to get cars off of streets, to become the new cycling capital, or to encourage more men to take public transport, you’ll soon run into both systemic and behavioural obstacles. Learn how to overcome them: by, for and with the next generation.

Any project’s success depends on leaders who are able to convene a powerful team, who nurture their followers and teach the skills they learned by winning and making mistakes along the way. Let’s listen to and connect with some of the most exciting urban leaders around.

Looking back, we’ll be puzzled by how we could think it was normal to simply throw away so much stuff. When recounting how we got ourselves out of this literal mess, we’ll be more baffled still. It’s people like you and me who just did things differently.

People identify with their neighbourhoods. Discover how to make them livable (again), where architecture and district visions are going hand in hand, and what brownfield redevelopments can do for better cities.
