As we are approaching the end of this decade, the fifth generation mobile network (5G) technology, providing mobile communication services of unprecedented quality, is on the path to become a commercial reality. This recent progress towards 5G has been enabled by a clear focus of research organizations, governmental research programs and the communications industry at large on this target. This is the critical time when researchers are starting to think about the next big steps in communications. How will people and machines communicate in the future? What kind of new communication services and data usage will impact our lives towards the end of the next decade? What will be the directions and challenges in communications and networking after 5G? What disruptive transmission technologies, network architectures, management and control schemes will allow us to take communications yet another step further?
The Visions for Future Communications Summit, sharing the vision pursued by the IEEE 5G Initiative, will bring together thought leaders from research, industry and governments, to discuss their visions of the future of communications. The 2 day event will consist of keynote presentations, invited presentations as well as submissions from open call addressing future challenges and opportunities in communications. Contributions will be selected based on visionary appeal rather than proven results. Emphasis will be put on disruptive ideas that can change the world. The conference will address network architectures and control, physical layer and transmission technologies as well as service related aspects in 3 parallel tracks.
