 5G Technology Workshop Series

IEEE Communication Society (ComSoc) currently chaired by Dr Navin Kumar led the series of workshop on 5G technology which was basically conceived in Nov 2013 with two days workshop on LTE and Beyond 4G. Since then, a minimum of 2 events are conducted every year focused on 5G Technology. The workshop series has got tremendous popularity. Industry has started supporting our initiative. Thanks for Nokia Inc. who hosts the one of the event of two each year that ComSoc conducts. Recently, we completed 7th in the series to discuss various aspects of 5G research to increase the awareness and see the original contribution from India in 5G Technology.
