The 2021 Joint EuCNC & 6G Summit, initiated this year, builds on putting together two successful conferences in the area of telecommunications: EuCNC, in its 30th edition of a series, supported by the European Commission; the 6G Summit, in its 3rd edition, originated from the 6G Flagship programme in Finland, one of the very first in its area. The conference is sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society and by the European Association for Signal Processing, and focuses on all aspects of telecommunications ranging from 5G deployment and mobile IoT to 6G exploration and future communications systems and networks, including experimentation and testbeds, and applications and services. It brings together cutting-edge research and world-renown industries and businesses, globally attracting in the last years more than 1 300 delegates from more than 40 countries all over the world, to present and discuss the latest results, and an exhibition space of more than 1 500 m2 with more than 70 exhibitors, for demonstrating the technology developed in the area, namely within research projects from EU R&I programmes.
LEVERAGING THE EUROPEAN OPEN SOURCE ECOSYSTEM
Open-source software in modern corporate information systems is what brings together experts from around the world at OW2con’21. The central theme of OW2con’21 is “Leveraging the European Open Source Ecosystem.”
The world needs a vibrant European open source ecosystem. As open-source software has become mainstream how do we ensure it creates long-term value for all and enables good jobs and digital sovereignty across societies? The growth and sustainability of the ecosystem depend on the success of its stakeholders: open-source projects and developers, open-source foundations, systems integrators, software vendors, and users. We all play a part through our technology choices, our best practices, our engagement with other players. We each have a vested interest in the well-being of other stakeholders. OW2con’21 will address the many challenges of ensuring a sustainable European open source ecosystem.
TOGETHER, WE ARE BUILDING THE STARTUP ECOSYSTEM FOR A BETTER FUTURE
4YFN is the startup event of the world’s largest exhibition for the mobile industry, GSMA MWC. Our goal is to support startups, investors and companies to connect and launch new business ventures together.
4YFN’s programmes and events give startups access to gamechanging ideas and bleeding-edge discussions, an international network of contacts and a whole world of business opportunities.
4YFN helps investors to connect with each other while discovering together the most promising startups. We build an exclusive platform for investors to share co-investment projects and increase their deal flow.
4YFN helps corporations to innovate in collaboration with a global ecosystem of tech entrepreneurs. We bridge the gap between corporations and startups and help them to approach innovation with a shared vision in order to co-create products and services.
4YFN supports accelerators and governments who want to project the creativity of their ecosystems to the tech industry, with exhibition space to showcase their best startups and opportunities for those startups to pitch to investors.
NEXT-GENERATION IOT FOR A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
The rising awareness of climate change has caused the popularization of sustainability and the realization that we need to do things not only differently, but better.
As focus shifts to finding solutions to climate issues, technological advancements and innovation present a promising way forward.
The Internet of Things, for example, which Boston Consulting Group estimates will boom into an $267 billion dollar industry by 2021, promises to
facilitate great leaps in our efforts to transform our places and spaces, from homes and offices to entire cities, into sustainable environments.
If IoT technologies build on not only established technology, but also new capabilities in the backend, such as artificial intelligence, deep semantic
interoperability and novel contractual arrangements like Blockchains, they will undoubtedly bring fundamental change to all sectors of activity, improving the way we live and work.
In other words, IoT is likely to be an essential element of the Next Generation Internet, setting the groundwork for systems and devices of the future.
EAI CROWNCOM 2021 – 16th EAI International Conference on Cognitive Radio Oriented Wireless Networks
CROWNCOM 2021 aims at presenting new research results and perspectives of cognitive radio systems for 5G and beyond 5G networks, and will provide a forum for exchanging ideas, discussing solutions, and sharing experiences among researchers and experts from academia, industry, standards, and policy.
Following the success of last edition, the main scope of CROWNCOM 2021 is on innovations and applications with the cognitive-based solutions in the context of 5G and beyond.
Cognitive Radio and Sharing mechanisms have been considered for sub 6GHz bands broadband systems mainly. Hotspot research topics on Cognitive Radio in various contexts include spectrum sharing, dynamic spectrum access, increased system flexibility through access to rich context information, virtualization and management, etc.
With the development of intelligent algorithms, the new 5G paradigm and its expected evolutions into 6G raised unprecedented expectations in terms of broadband services, latency and convergence of broadband systems with IoT networks.
In this context, CROWNCOM 2021 will encompass all research aspects related to 5G and beyond systems that may benefit from the introduction of cognitive mechanisms, including most recent innovations, trends, examples of state-of-the-art industrial deployments, contributions to standards and policies. Besides, to provide a forum for the world-class researchers to gather and share their research achievements and ideas, all papers related to communication signal processing, satellite communications and networking, aerial communications networking and protocols, IoT and IoE, electronic countermeasures, and artificial intelligence are solicited.
EAI CROWNCOM 2021 will be held by Hebei Normal University in Shijiazhuang City, capital of the Hebei Province. Shijiazhuang City is ‘National Advanced City of Science and Education’, with strong scientific and technological capability. Starting from 2020, 5G will be commercially available on a large scale, and the coverage of 5G networks in cities and hot spots will be improved, gradually extending to rural areas. In Shijiazhuang, there are 36 scenic areas of Class A and 33 demonstration sites for industrial and agricultural tourism. The people of Shijiazhuang welcome friends from all over the world.
