Spectrum access for local 6G networks
This workshop brings together experts from industry, academia and regulation around spectrum access for local 6G networks. Local 5G networks changed the traditional exclusive spectrum awarding in the 5G era, when several countries started to issue local spectrum licenses opening the market to new entry. 6G continues the local deployment model and brings together communication, imaging, positioning, locationing, sensoring, and computing services, creating a powerful tool for location specific service delivery.
This workshop will contribute to the research and development of the local 6G networks, balancing between technical, business and regulation perspectives and combinations thereof. The workshop hosts invited keynote presentations from industry and academia followed by workshop paper presentations through the open call to share ideas on challenges and solutions to spectrum access for local 6G in a multi-disciplinary manner.
Workshop invites papers on spectrum access for local 6G networks through this open call in a multi-disciplinary manner on topics including but not limited to:
- Technical papers on vertical and horizontal spectrum sharing; intra and inter local network interference management; local mobility management; trust and security; AI inspired spectrum access;
- Experimental or analytical studies on the feasibility of spectrum bands for local 6G networks;
- Policy/regulation related papers on current status of local spectrum access; regulations around local 5G/6G networks; global harmonization; sustainable spectrum management;
- Business papers on use cases and their implications on technology development; business ecosystems and stakeholders, business models for local network services; key value indicators; spectrum valuation and pricing;
- Combinations of technical, policy and business perspectives for local spectrum access.
