More than 100 international industry representatives and scientists are expected for a conference of the Wireless World Research Forum (WWRF) to be held at the University of Kassel, Germany, from 5 - 7 October. The experts will be discussing the current situation, market potential and technical standards of future mobile telecommunication systems, the so-called fifth mobile generation (5G).
5G is seen as a key element for the upcoming digitilisation in all areas of life. It will have an effect on many other aspects of a networked society in the future, such as cyber-physical systems, the tactile Internet, the Internet of Things, networked automobiles (V2V) and Industry 4.0.
The conference programme therefore includes lectures and workshops on the Internet of Things, intelligent vehicles, mobile healthcare services and future user behaviour as well as a tutorial that provides an overview of 5G.
A particular focus of discussion will be new business models and applications that will be enabled through 5G. Participants and speakers at the conference include representatives from Samsung (Korea), Huawei (China), Nokia (Finland) and EnOcean (Germany).
"We are excited about this next conference of the WWRF and about the current status of 5G," remarked Prof. Dr. Klaus David, head of the Department of Communication Technology (ComTec) at the University of Kassel and organiser of the conference.
"The high pace of digitilisation has a large influence on the value chain of vertical markets and industries including the areas of healthcare, transport, logistics, production and energy as well as intelligent cities, education and information in the public sector. This offers companies and the society at large many new business models and possibilities. A start with 5G should be possible already in 2020."
In his recent speech on the state of the union, EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker called for EU-wide development of 5G mobile communication technology.
The WWRF is a forum that brings together academics and representatives of development and mobile technology companies. Twice a year it organises a worldwide conference, most recently in Silicone Valley and in Peking. The 37th conference of the WWRF will take place from 5 - 7 October 2016 at the University of Kassel location Wilhelmshöher Allee 71 - 73.

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event
On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...
Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.
Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....
Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).
When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...
Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.
How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...
Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.
It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
