Motivation and Background

The European 6G flagship research project Hexa-X (H2020 ICT-52) is currently working towards building the foundation for a future 6G system and exploring a plethora of technical enablers. The research in the project is consolidating the views from the 25 partners from leading academic institutions and industry players and conducting leading edge technological exploration and development related to enhanced radio performance and combined communication and localization/sensing; Connected intelligence with integrated AI/ML; Network evolution expansion, exploring new network architectures and novel verticals. As such, the workshop will accurately address the conference tracks ‘6G Enabling Technologies’ and ‘6G Visions’, by providing a consolidated view on the 6G research from the major European players.This workshop provides an opportunity to solidify Hexa-X’s position as a leading 6G project on a global scale, showcasing the work done with presentations and live demos, as well as provide an opportunity to connect and align with the 6G research perform elsewhere. This will be accomplished by inviting other ICT-52 6G technical enabler projects to present, as well as through an open call for technical contributions.
