WS-24: 4th Workshop on Ultra-high Speed, Low latency and Massive Communication for Futuristic 6G Networks

IEEE International Workshop on Ultra-high speed, Low latency and Massive Communication for futuristic 6G Networks (ULMC6GN)

June 14–18, 2021
Montreal, Canada

Scope

Today’s wireless services and systems have come a long way since the rollout of the conventional voice-centric cellular systems. The demand for wireless access in voice and multimedia applications has increased tremendously. In addition to these, new application classes, such as enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) communication, ultra-reliable and low latency communications (uRLLC), massive machine type communications (mMTC), and the Internet of Things (IoT), have gained significant interest recently for 5G wireless networks. In order to address these technical challenges, 5G waveforms and radio access technologies (RATs) should be much more flexible. In the enhanced Mobile Broadband scenario, the user experienced data rate (from 100 Mbit/s, in urban and sub-urban areas, to 1 Gbit/s, in indoor cases) – defined as achievable data rate that is available ubiquitously across the related considered target coverage area to a mobile user/device – has the highest importance, especially in hotspots.

The goal of the workshop is to solicit the recent developments in ultra-high speed, low latency, and massive connectivity communication with a vision of their potential advancement into beyond 5G and towards 6G. We aim to organize the 4th Workshop on “Ultra-high speed, Low latency and Massive Communication for futuristic 6G Networks (ULMC6GN)” in ICC 2021 to bring together academic researchers, industrial practitioners, and individuals working on this emerging exciting research areas to share their new ideas, latest findings, identify and discuss potential use cases, open research problems, technical challenges, and solution methods in this context.
