UNESCO report 2019 revealed that about 45% of the world population still don’t have the access to broadband connectivity. A recent report from ITU suggested that an estimated 37% of the world population (or 2.9bn people) never used the Internet in their entire lifespan. A few of the major overarching reasons for this large number of people still offline include a) high cost of appropriate user devices, b) high cost of internet services, etc. Advancements in wireless communication technologies have provided us with the opportunity to enhance the quality of life and connect more people to the internet. Furthermore, we require new ways of producing and consuming energy and of minimizing electronic waste to protect our planet’s health. Beyond 5G (B5G)/6G networks are expected to support a massive number of connected devices/sensors/machines with enhanced Ultra-Reliable and Low-Latency (e-URLLC) to realize the end-to-end latency of about 0.01 ms with 99.9999% reliability. Towards supporting the e-URLLC, ultra-low energy-consumption and high-capacity links targeted by B5G/6G networks, it is crucial to introduce innovation at the edge- and device-level by addressing several constraints such as power limitations, low computational capacity, and low limited storage capacity. The recent advances in edge computing architecture and technologies with the notion of “edge processing as a service”  are expected to enable e-URLLC in future networks, by bringing the computing and storage capabilities near to the end-users. Furthermore, potential device-level innovations to support Consumer Electronics 2.0 include the design of efficient power amplifiers, receiver filters capable of operating in higher frequencies, efficient multi-antenna arrays for end-users, inter-chip communications via THz line-of-sight links, lightweight modulation and coding for high-speed communications, near-field communications, and backscatter communications for zero-energy devices. This proposed special session is a continuation of the special session conducted in EUCNC & 6G Summit 2021 entitled “Edge-side and Device-level Innovation for 6G Wireless Networks”. S. J. Nawaz, S. K. Sharma, M. N. Patwary and M. Asaduzzaman, “Next-Generation Consumer Electronics for 6G Wireless Era,” IEEE Access, vol. 9, pp. 143198-143211, 2021.
Motivated by the aforementioned highlights, the objective of this special session is to bring the researchers working on the related domains together to discuss novel ideas, theoretical models, and simulation/experimentation results towards supporting device-level innovation in B5G/6G networks for Consumer Electronics 2.0. The tentative list of papers (along with the authors and their affiliations) to be presented and the title of the planned invited talk (along with the speaker) during this special session are included below.
