6G Research and Innovation Cluster: Vision and Challenges Ahead

Tuesday, 7 June 2022, 9:00-10:30/11:00-12:30/14:00-15:30/16:00-17:30, Room A302

Motivation and Background

The 6G Research and Innovation Cluster (6G-RIC) aims to establish scientific and technical foundations for the next generation of mobile networks (6G) at all technology levels, including radio access, core and transport networks. This is achieved through an interdisciplinary and coordinated collaboration of leading experts in communications engineering and related disciplines. The focus is on research and development of a secure, flexible and open communications infrastructure as the basis for successful digitization in business and in all areas of society. We take a holistic approach to 6G that considers AI and security-by-design (incl. PHY-layer security and post-quantum security) as integral parts of the overall system design. Only in this way, future networks can efficiently and securely capture, process, and transmit data to significantly reduce energy consumption and improve resource utilization. At the workshop, 6G-RIC principal investigators will present the project vision and preliminary results, including a security architecture, and raise relevant research questions for 6G considering practical impairments and hardware constraints. Leading external researchers will discuss recent results and current trends in 6G. The workshop will cover both fundamental and practical research aspects, which is ensured by the composition of the consortium, consisting of the top university groups in Germany, the institutes of the Leibniz Association and the Fraunhofer-Society, complemented by external experts from both Industry and Academia.
