About 6GN 2020

Nowadays, a large number of mobile services offer great opportunities of connecting anything at any time for human beings, e.g. mobile social services, crowdsourcing, crowdsensing, mobile searching, wearable services, mobile robots, virtual reality, augmented reality, unmanned system etc. The fifth-generation (5G) has made, and will continue to make, contributions to meet the requirements of explosive data traffic in wireless and mobile communications. Moreover, B5G/6G will drive another wave of new trends, not only to optimize the spectrum and spatial bandwidth, but also to create more new technologies and applications. The opportunities and challenges of 5G/B5G/6G are continuing to attract the attention of academics, industries, and governments.
The 3rd EAI International Conference on B5G/6G for Future Wireless Networks (6GN 2020), which will be held in Tianjin, P. R. China, encourages innovative papers that advance the state-of-the-art and practical applications of 5G/B5G/6G technologies. Similar to the previous version of this conference, the goal of 5GN 2020 is to further gather research contributions that address the major opportunities and challenges in the latest cellular network, including novel air interfaces, cellular spectrum, networking architectures and techniques, cellular-driven modern network systems, network measurement and experiment, application and services, etc., with emphasis on both new analytical outcomes and novel application scenarios. We encourage prospective authors to submit their original, unpublished work.
