New generation networks: How will 5G change networks, our life, and our bank account?

The workshop aims to show photographs of some aspects of the next generation (5G) networks under various aspects, not necessarily technical ones. In fact, presentations regarding new transmission, control or traffic technologies will also focus on economic aspects and 5G is also seen in the perspective of an exceptional investment opportunity.

Apart from the moderator, the participants in the Panel will all be women, giving the workshop not only a very high technical level, but also a sensitivity that male researchers often do not have. The successful researchers who will participate in the panel can serve as an example to girls who want to pursue this career.

Time: Tuesday, June 29, 13:30-15:30 CET
