ComSoc and MTT to Host Joint 5G Summit at IMS2017

ComSoc and MTT to Host Joint 5G Summit at IMS2017
The 5G Summit at IMS2017 is part of a special collaboration that complements MTT-S’s “hardware and systems” focus with ComSoc’s "networking and services” focus. It will be held from 5–6 June as part of the impactful series. This summit will provide a platform for industry leaders, innovators, and researchers from the industrial and academic community to collaborate and exchange ideas in this emerging technology that may help drive the standards and enable rapid deployment.

The summit program features top experts from industry, academia, and government, who will share knowledge and discuss strategies and solutions with the summit attendees. Day 1 (PM) features Flavio Bonomi of Nebbiolo Technologies as the opening keynote speaker, who will give a 5G overview and show the relationship with fog computing and networking as a key enabler. Distinguished speakers following Flavio will cover topics including security, spectrum use, operator and service provider perspectives, advanced multicarrier waveforms, channel modeling, and densification.
Day 1 will end with a panel on “5G Startup Ecosystem-Network to Components.” Day 2 (PM) begins with an overview of the IEEE 5G Initiative by Ashutosh Dutta of AT&T, the initiative co-chair, and then a keynote by Arogyaswami Paulraj of Stanford University on “5G Wireless Evolution and MU-MIMO.” The distinguished speakers who follow will cover topics such as massive MIMO from LTS to new radio, V2X and 5G, 5G vision and experimental trials from a service provider perspective, full-duplex wireless challenges, RFIC/CMOS techniques for 5G and beyond, and RFIC/CMOS transceivers for 5G. Day 2 will close with a panel on “5G Test and Measurement.”
