5G Summit Series

 5G Technology Workshop Series (IEEE 5G Summit Bangalore)

The IEEE Communication Society (ComSoc) community in Bangalore has, of late, led a series of workshops related to 5G technology research and development. The series was first conceived in Nov 2013 with a two day workshop on LTE and Beyond 4G. Since then, one or more events have been conducted every year focused on 5G. The workshop series has been very popular with tremendous support from both industry and academia. Recently, the 10th workshop in the series was completed to discuss various aspects of emerging directions in 5G research to increase awareness and to motivate original contributions from India in the 5G area. The event is now renamed as 5G Summit Bangalore.
