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.

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.
The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.
Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...
Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.
Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
