5G-PPP Cross-project Workshop on Use cases / models / performance evaluation, Air interface design, Overall 5G RAN design and Overall 5G architecture

METIS-II is together with mmMAGIC and FANTASTIC 5G arranging a two-day workshop.

The workshop gathers most of the 5G PPP projects, focusing on radio aspects for future communication networks. In the two-day workshop, topics like scenarios and evaluations of 5G system will be treated along with discussions on 5G Architecture and overall 5G RAN Design. The workshop is a significant effort of the project METIS-II, which aims to bring the European research activities on 5G together, to enable collaboration among the ongoing projects to create a unified European view, and to ensure a successful start of standardisation of 5G system in the next months.
