Title: Some Discussions over The Early 6G From Physical Layer Wireless Communications Point of View


Chunguo Li received the bachelor’s degree in wireless communications from Shandong University in 2005, and the Ph.D. degree in wireless communications from Southeast University in 2010. In July 2010, he joined the Faculty of Southeast University, Nanjing China, where he is currently an Advisor of Ph.D candidates and Full Professor. From June 2012 to June 2013, he was the Post-Doctoral researcher with Concordia University, Montreal, Canada. From July 2013 to August 2014, he was with the DSL laboratory of Stanford University as visiting associate professor. From August 2017 to July 2019, he was the adjunct professor of Xizang Minzu University under the supporting Tibet program organized by China National Human Resources Ministry.
He is an IET Fellow and IEEE CIS Nanjing Chapter Chair. His research interests are in 6G cell-free distributed MIMO wireless communications and cyberspace security.


In this talk, we will first give a brief summary over the latest research progress over 5G. Then, we will discuss the potential requirements, techniques candidates, and key features of 6G, especially the key differences of 6G against 6G will be addressed from the physical layer point of view. In particular, the reflecting intelligent surface (RIS) will be discovered in detail.
