2014 5g Workshop

Welcome to the Center for Wireless Communications 5G Forum on Next-Generation Wireless Systems and Applications! Wireless communication is one of the most important engines of modern technology. It has revolutionized almost every aspect of our lives: the way we work, interact, socialize, and relax, and will soon play a significant role in health care, education, transportation, and energy.

Over the next five to 10 years, the communication industry will conceive, design, and implement the fifth generation (5G) of wireless systems. This fundamental overhaul of the communication technology and infrastructure will enable orders-of-magnitude increases in connectivity, capacity, and speed, thus enabling a new generation of applications.

To help shape research and increase its impact on this major technology, UC San Diego's Center for Wireless Communications is organizing the 5G Forum. Major industry and research leaders will share their vision of next-generation connectivity, from the new commercial opportunities it will open up to the technical challenges we need to overcome.

Please join us at this timely event celebrating research, technology, innovation and the future of communication. For an initial list of speakers already set to share their insights at the 5G Forum, click here.
