Motivation and Background

The European 6G flagship research project Hexa-X-II (HORIZON-JU-SNS-2022-STREAM-B-01-05) are continuing the work laid out by Hexa-X with a consortium of 44 partners, covering the entire value chain to create the blueprint system design of 6G ahead of the initiation of the technical standardization for 6G. The project aims to create strong foundation on 6G values and requirements seeing how the 6G design could strive for economic, social, and environmental sustainability in all its facets. The project is also conducting research on architectural enablers, radio evolution, 6G devices & infrastructure, and smart network management.

As such, the workshop will accurately address the conference tracks ‘PHY—Physical Layer and Fundamentals’, ‘WOS – Wireless, Optical and Satellite Networks’, ‘NET – Network Softwarization’ ‘AIU Applications, IoT, Use Cases’ and ‘6G Visions and Sustainability’, by providing an overview on the 6G research from the major European players.

This workshop provides an opportunity to solidify Hexa-X-II’s position as a leading 6G project as a successor to Hexa-X, showcasing the work done with presentations, as well as provide an opportunity to connect and align with the 6G research perform elsewhere. This will be accomplished by inviting other SNS-JU Stream B 6G technical enabler projects to present.
