Message from the Technical Programme Committee Co-Chairs
Welcome to EuCNC & 6G Summit 2023!
It is our honour as the lead local organiser and chair/ vice chair of the Technical Programme of the 32nd edition of the European Conference on Networks and Communications (EuCNC) that for the third year is co-organized with the 6G Summit to welcome all patrons, authors, exhibitors and attendees. The conference will take place in Gothenburg June 6-9, 2023, at The Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre, a renowned Scandinavian centre for exhibitions, conferences, and meetings.
After many years of active contributions to the EU research community, we are thrilled to invite you again to the north of Europe, to Gothenburg, located on the beautiful West Coast of Sweden, which is celebrating its 400th Anniversary starting June 2. Gothenburg is the home of the Chalmers University of Technology, which is the lead local organiser of the conference this year, and several high-tech companies, such as the top patron Ericsson but also other technology companies such as Volvo Cars, Volvo Group, SKF, SAAB, Beyond Gravity, AstraZeneca, and prominent SMEs. We hope you will also seize the opportunity to discover what this green city can provide when it comes to dining, museums, sights and activities, as well as visit one of the World’s finest Archipelagos.
The motto for EuCNC & 6G Summit 2023 is “6G for a Green and Digital Transition”. 6G is in an excellent position to help address most of the societal needs as identified by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs), targeted for 2030. To this end, 6G needs to be sustainable. It should look after its carbon footprint and enable other sectors to become sustainable, offering tools for increasing our handprint within the verticals. From a technical perspective, 6G should enable interactions between the human world of our senses, bodies, intelligence and values; a digital world of information, communication and computing; and a physical world of objects, processes, and organisms. To create such an internet of senses, it is foreseen that there will be a technical convergence in 6G of terrestrial and non-terrestrial communications, radio-based sensing, as well as computing and storage with artificial intelligence.
We are very proud of the technical program with top-level keynotes, panels, regular paper sessions, special sessions, convened sessions, poster sessions, workshops, tutorials, exhibitions with a Speakers’ Corner, and an outstanding social programme. This exciting conference programme has been made possible thanks to exceptional contributions from the EU and global research community, the Technical committee with volunteering Co-chairs and TPC members, the Organizing Committee, Steering Committee, Conference general chairs, the Awards Committee, Meetx conference organiser, Chalmers staff and volunteers. Specifically and with great gratitude, we would like to highlight the role of our Patrons − Ericsson, Huawei, Nokia, Technology Innovation Institute, Keysight, National Instruments, Rohde & Schwarz, IMEC, Qamcom, and Virginia Diodes, and our Sponsors − the European Commission, Gothenburg City, CEA-Leti, IEEE Comsoc, EURASIP and EurAAP, who have made significant contributions to make this extraordinary event a reality.
We look forward to hearing about latest research findings generated in 6G research programmes around the world at EuCNC & 6G Summit 2023.
Welcome, and looking forward to seeing you all in Gothenburg!
