Contacts and further information:


  • Antonio Manzalini, Telecom Italia Mobile, Italy
  • Rita Casadio, University of Bologna, Italy

Abstract – 5G will be much more than a next generation mobile infrastructure beyond 4G. 5G will be an end-to-end network and service platform integrating seamlessly computing, storage and networking functions: main features includes transparent (fixed/mobile) ultra-broadband connectivity, with higher bandwidth and lower latency, flexible and programmable network services, machine learning and artificial intelligence capabilities, advanced levels of security and privacy. 5G will change radically the Telecommunications landscape in the next few years bringing unprecedented opportunities for the Digital Society and the Digital Economy: new ecosystems will emerge including Internet of Things, Industry 4.0, Cloud Robotics, Precision Agriculture, E-health, Personalized Medicine, etc.

Main scope of the satellite event “5G for Genomics” is sharing views on how 5G will provide flexible and dynamic network, processing and storage services for supporting Genomics research and innovation activities. In fact, Next Generation Sequencing and ICT, at lowering costs, are creating the conditions for radical breakthroughs in Medicine and Biology: there are increasing needs of flexible and cost-effective network solutions for programmable services allowing accessibility, security, retrieval and processing of Genomic data. 5G could meet these requirements boosting advances in Genomics, with far reaching socio-economic implications for the Digital Society.
