mmMAGIC showcased 5G mm-wave hardware demos, phased-array antennas, channel model and visualization software. The project had a record attendance of 60+ in its booth from across the world, as well as very high visibility at IEEE PIMRC with two excellent 5G panels with mmMAGIC speakers (50+ attendance each).The mmMAGIC paper “Speeding up mmWAve Beam Training through Low Complexity Hybrid Transceivers” from IMDEA networks Institute has won PIMRC 16 Best Student Paper Award and several other papers plus another panel from the project were presented at this year IEEE PIMRC.
METIS-II successfully organised the panel 1 “What is relevant research for 5G Advanced?”.
5G PPP Phase 3: preparation on 5G for Healthcare Munich, Germany – September 15
The calls for 5G PPP Phase 3 projects will be announced in 2017. Between now and then stakeholder discussions can influence the call text with regards to highlighted topics, impacts required, aims and objectives. As part of ieeehealthcom2016.com, the 5G for Healthcare workshop was organised by 5G PPP. It offered the opportunity to contribute to the content of this important future call.
