IEEE International Conference on Advanced Networks and Telecommunications Systems
14–17 December 2020 // Virtual Conference

5th International Workshop on 5G and Future Wireless Technology (5GFWT 2020)

5G Wireless is one of the most importance research areas at present. Several working groups all over the world are investigating various aspects of 5G Wireless/Cellular Systems. The investigation and research has started for the next generation cellular system as well. The workshop 5GFWT is focused on latest development in present system and beyond. The workshop will not only deliberate the latest development and achievements but also provides a platform for the timely exchange of research, findings and challenges encountered in building a practical system. It seeks to encourage interdisciplinary discussion in order to help maintain a high relevance in numerous applications/vertical related research activities. We seek paper submission in relevant fields, including the following:

  • 4G, 5G and Beyond
