Wireless World Research Forum Meeting 44
29th June - 1st July 2020 in Copenhagen, Denmark

Registration Accomodation

Welcome to the 44th WWRF Meeting

Theme "The Road Ahead to Ubiquitous 5G"

It is well established that 5G will provide fast access to information and data. The full promise is availability of “fast, uniform, reliable and cost effective” connectivity anywhere, anytime for users on the move. Scenarios showing need and requirement in several industry verticals are demonstrated. To realize the promise there are, however challenges related generally to security, privacy and to sustainable business models for implementation with SME’s. With the deployment of 5G started in 2020, these challenges must be addressed.

Plenary Speakers

Confirmed speakers include: Rahim Tafazolli, University of Surrey; Mads Rasmussen, CTO Huawei, DK; Simon Saunders, OFCOM; Franck Boissière, EU CONNECT E4; Charles Brookson, ETSI ; SN Gupta, Blue Town India


WWRF being the leading platform for discussions and innovation at the global level is organizing its 44th meeting at Aalborg University, Copenhagen, Denmark, from 29 June to 1 July 2020. Whether a hybrid physical/online or an online-only arrangement is realized depends on the health authorities and the global situation. Currently a hybrid solution seems most likely: some may participate physically; others can and will participate online, but WWRF44 WILL HAPPEN. Please sign up at www.wwrf.ch/wwrf44.html. You will be charged when we know the conditions regarding your choice. The conditions are expected to be clarified mid-May.

The online part will use GoToWebinar.
