Thank you to our speakers, volunteers, organizers, sponsors, and most of all, attendees for a successful IEEE 2nd 5G World Forum.

2019 IEEE 2nd 5G World Forum Conference Overview

The 2019 IEEE 2nd 5G World Forum (5GWF’19), jointly organized by IEEE and 5G Lab Germany in conjunction with the IEEE 4th 5G Summit Dresden, will be held in Dresden, Germany, from September 30 through October 2, 2019. The IEEE 5G World Forum and 5G Summit will take a holistic approach to 5G system design, ranging from silicon hardware, wireless interfaces, networks, edge clouds all the way up to Tactile Internet applications. This three-day event offers a unique platform for industry leaders, innovators, and researchers from industry and academia to collaborate and exchange ideas that will help to drive standards and rapid deployment forward.

5G is not only evolutionary, providing higher bandwidth and lower latency than current-generation technology; more importantly, 5G is revolutionary, in that it is expected to enable fundamentally new applications with much more stringent requirements in latency and bandwidth. 5G should help solve the last-mile/last-kilometer problem and provide broadband access to the next billion users on earth at much lower cost because of its use of new spectrum and its improvements in spectral efficiency.

The World Forum will attract industry practitioners, researchers and academia, government regulators, and public sector executives to hear industry experts and peers share best practices and lessons learned, latest research, new standards development initiatives, innovations, and first-hand experiences regarding prototyping and initial service offerings. It offers an outstanding opportunity to showcase your products and applications to a vibrant and engaged audience and provides an ideal platform for you to reach hundreds of key decision makers involved in 5G.
