2nd EAI International Conference on 5G for Ubiquitous Connectivity

June 8–10, 2017 | Melbourne, Australia



In order to meet the huge demand for increasing capacity in wireless networks considerable leaps in technology development need to be made. Several research initiatives around the world on 5th generation mobile cellular systems have been launched recently. Also frequency regulation and standardization activities will be launched very soon targeting the next generation standard. The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers and developers as well as regulators and policy makers to present their latest views on 5G: potential disruptive technologies enabling 5G, spectrum policies for 5G, future business models, and of course, latest findings in key research activities on 5G.

The conference tracks include, but are not limited to, the following topics:

Track 1 – Spectrum Regulation & Standardization

  • Regulation and standardization
  • Experimental systems and trials
  • Multioperator spectrum management
  • Dynamic spectrum sharing

Track 2 – PHY & MAC

  • Interference management
  • Modulation & coding
  • MAC and duplexing
  • Adaptive TRX schemes

Track 3 – Tranceiver Technologies

  • Tranceiver algorithms and architectures
  • Tranceivers for mm-wave bands
  • Software defined and flexible radios
  • Tranceiver platforms, technologies and design tools
  • Prototypes and demonstrators

Track 4 – Future Access Networks

  • Heterogeneous networks
