Welcome to the new WWRF web site!
Whether you are an existing member or not, you will find the new layout more usable, providing faster access to the increasing amount of information that we want to provide you. It will also be easier for us to manage, so the site will be more up to date and relevant. Following on from our successful 2012, with major 5G wireless workshops, and a re-
structuring of our working groups, we now move on to a busy year, with full meetings in Finland and Canada, and a number of high-profile workshops organized with our partners at GISFI, ITU and IEEE, as well as our active publications programme. We look forward to working with you in 2013 to build the Wireless World!
WWRF and GISFI held a joint workshop at the KJ Engineering Institute. Keynote speeches were given by WWRF Fellows Professor Rahim Tafazolli of University of Surrey and Professor Ramadass Sureswaran of USM, and from sponsor member Huawei and working group chair Professor Knud Erik Skouby of Aalborg University. WWRF chairman Nigel Jefferies and GISFI chairman Prof. Ramjee Prasad agreed to continue collaboration between the organizations focusing especially on the development of 5G technologies.
