About 6GN 2021

Nowadays, a majority of communication services provide great opportunities of connecting Internet of Things (IoT) at any time, e.g. mobile edge computing, virtual reality, augmented reality, mobile social services, mobile searching, mobile robots, 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.

We invite high quality original research papers describing recent and expected challenges or discoveries along with potential intelligent solutions for 5G/B5G/6G. We welcome both theoretical and experimental papers. We expect the papers of the conference to serve as valuable references for a large audience from both academia and industry. Both original, unpublished contributions and survey/tutorial types of articles are encouraged.
