6G MUSICAL

News & Events

As one of the most eagerly awaited telecommunications events of the year, the EuCNC (3-6 June 2024) is an essential platform that gathers cutting-edge research and hosts discussions about the latest results in 5G deployment, mobile IoT, 6G exploration, and future communications systems. At this year’s edition in Antwerp, the 6G-MUSICAL project will co-organise a two-hour special session with the iSEE-6G project about:

 

Beyond Joint Communication and Sensing: The Road Towards Joint Communication, Computation, Sensing, and Power Transfer for 6G. (Special Session 7)

Wednesday, 5 June 2024, 11:00-13:00, Room Toucan 1

About 6G-MUSICAL session

The idea of integrating communication and sensing capabilities into one system leading to joint communication and sensing (JCS) carries the possibility of a disruptive change in the evolution of the different Gs. For the first time the network will not be communication only but will have an embedded radio sensing component. This has the potential to bring about significant advances in various sixth-generation (6G)-related fields, such as smart transportation, smart cities, smart homes, healthcare, security, and environmental monitoring. To fulfil all expectations and requirements, as well as for low-end devices, 6G will rely on the offloading of computationally demanding tasks in the Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC) services at the 6G edge cloud. In this context, Simultaneous Wireless Information and Power Transfer (SWIPT) can play a significant role in prolonging the limited lifetime of energy-constrained devices and ensuring uninterrupted and cost-effective service provisioning with quality-of-service (QoS) guarantees. To meet the challenges and the stringent requirements imposed by the upcoming 6G era, JCS has now become an integral part of the 6G edge cloud and SWIPT. However, although the integration of 6G edge cloud and SWIPT into JCS is inevitable, it comes with significant challenges, such as the need for efficient signal processing techniques, advanced antenna designs, and efficient power management systems. These challenges require the development of advanced 6G-related key enabling technologies that can enable seamless integration of communication and sensing capabilities. Triggered by the ever-increasing need to extend beyond JCS, this special session proposes the definition and development of Joint Communication, Computation, Sensing, and Power Transfer (JCCSP) unified radio platform, which is accompanied by all support elements of the proposed solutions in future 6G revolutions by integrating, exploiting, and supporting 6G key enabling technologies.

 

There will also be a demo at BOOTH#11

About EuCNC

The 2024 EuCNC & 6G Summit builds on putting together two successful conferences in the area of telecommunications:

EuCNC (European Conference on Networks and Communications), supported by the European Commission, and the 6G Summit, originated from the 6G Flagship programme in Finland, one of the very first in its area.

 

The conference is sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc), the European Association for Signal Processing (EURASIP) and the European Association on Antennas and Propagation (EurAAP), and focuses on all aspects of telecommunications ranging from 5G deployment and mobile IoT to 6G exploration and future communications systems and networks, including experimentation and testbeds, and applications and services. It brings together cutting-edge research and world-renown industries and businesses, globally attracting in the last years more than 900 delegates from more than 40 countries all over the world, to present and discuss the latest results, and an exhibition with more than 50 exhibitors, for demonstrating the technology developed in the area, namely within research projects from EU R&I programmes.
