Martel’s Projects Anticipate Impactful Presence at EuCNC & 6G Summit 2024

Preparations for the EuCNC & 6G Summit 2024 are in full swing at Martel as eight of our projects, which cover a range of focus areas from next-generation network technologies to societal impacts of 6G, are set to participate in the conference’s rich program. The upcoming EuCNC & 6G Summit is taking place in Antwerp, Belgium, on June 3-6, 2024, under the theme, “6G: from Vision to Reality.” The projects where Martel is a consortium member, namely 6G-NTN, ETHER, 5G-STARDUST, 6G-XR, HORSE, SNS OPS, 6G4Society, and 5G-Blueprint will be involved in several sessions, workshops, as well as live demonstrations.

Innovative architectural designs for 6G

The 6G-XR and 6G-NTN project partners will participate in Workshop 8, “Architectural Considerations Enabling the IMT 2030 Framework by European 6G R&D Activities,” on June 3 from 14:00 to 17:30 in Room Galapagos. The consortia members will discuss strategic advancements under the newly approved ITU IMT-2030 framework, targeting the progression to 6G by integrating new usage scenarios with a focus on sustainability and security. This session aims to contribute to the future standardization paths of 6G technologies.

Trials and demonstrations toward 6G

Also on June 3, the 6G-XR project partners will engage in Workshop 9, “Trials, Pilots, and Demos for Selected Verticals: the Experimental Way Forward towards 6G,” showcasing the importance of trials in the practical application of theoretical frameworks into deployable 6G solutions. 

Regulatory insights for 6G implementation

The 6G-NTN project partners will also engage in a workshop focused on the regulatory aspects critical for the development of 6G technology. This discussion, titled “Bringing 6G from Vision to Reality in Europe – The Key Role of Regulation in Research,” will take place on June 4 from 11:00 to 13:00 in Room Toucan 2, exploring the regulatory challenges and opportunities shaping 6G’s future.

From 5G to 6G: supporting connected and automated mobility

The work and results of the 5G-Blueprint project will be showcased during the Special Session: From 5G to 6G Support for CAM (5G6GCAM) on June 4, from 16:00 to 17:30 in Room Toucan 2. This session aims to explore the evolution from 5G to 6G with a focus on the support for connected and automated mobility, discussing problems, solutions, and the ongoing transition toward next-generation services.

Social and ethical dimensions of 6G

On June 4, the 6G4Society project will address how 6G technologies can embody societal and ethical considerations during the session “Towards a Sustainable and Socially Accepted 6G for Society,” organized by Digital for Planet, the not-for-profit association founded by Martel. The discussion will focus on embedding societal values into the design of technological advancements to ensure that they promote sustainability and societal welfare.

In addition to the abovementioned sessions and workshops, Martelians and our project partners will participate in the poster session and the exhibition with the SNS OPS and 6G-XR booths. 

We look forward to insightful discussions with thought leaders, researchers, policymakers, and industry pioneers and learning more about 6G as a vital component of Europe’s digital future.

About the EuCNC & 6G Summit

The EuCNC & 6G Summit builds on putting together two successful conferences in the area of telecommunications: the European Conference on Networks and Communications, supported by the European Commission, and the 6G Summit, which originated from the 6G Flagship program in Finland. The conference is sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc), the European Association for Signal Processing (EURASIP) and the European Association on Antennas and Propagation (EurAAP). The event 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. The conference brings together cutting-edge research and world-renowned industries and businesses. In the last few years, the conference has attracted over 900 delegates from more than 40 countries who came together to present and discuss the latest results and demonstrate developed technologies.
