Since the development of the 4G LTE standards around 2010, the research communities both in academia and industry have been brainstorming to predict the use-cases and scenarios of 2020s, to determine the corresponding technical requirements, and to develop the enabling technologies, protocols, and network architectures towards the next-generation (5G) wireless standardization. This phase is winding down as the 5G standards are currently being developed with a scheduled completion date of late-2019; the 5G wireless networks are expected to be deployed globally throughout 2020s. As such, it is time to reinitiate a brainstorming endeavour followed by the technical groundwork towards the subsequent generation wireless networks for 2030s: 6G.

We plan to organize a series of casual workshops at Carleton to instigate discussions around 6G (mainly on the wireless side, but also with impact on the core network). Since a framework does not exits for the 6G discussions at this point in time, the planned workshops will be exploratory in nature.

The first workshop (6G-PHY-FEST) will be taking place this coming Tuesday on the physical layer aspects as outlined below. The next workshop will be in February on the 6G access network architecture with a focus on aerial networks. In the Spring we will have a third workshop on artificial intelligence, machine learning, and data analytics for wireless networks.

“We are certainly at the dawn of a new era in wireless research and innovation; the next twenty years will be very interesting.” says Halim Yanikomeroglu, the Director of the Wireless Research Group at Carleton University.
