Descrição do evento
3rd Training on Standardization and Workshop on Testbeds and Visible Light Communications

Acerca deste evento

The “New RAN TEchniques for 5G UltrA-dense Mobile networks” (TeamUp5G) is a leading European Training Network (ETN) in the frame of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks (MSCA ITN) of the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 framework, https://teamup5g.webs.tsc.uc3m.es/, with project number 813391, whose research is focused in the evolution of the 5G wireless communications.

The 3rd training on Standardization and Workshop on Testbeds and Visible Light Communications aims at providing a forum where the Early Stage Researchers will bring together their recent research efforts and learn, by a practical approach, how to prepare original contributions to standardization bodies, through brainstorming and discussion with tutors and fellow researchers.

As the Innovative Training Network is approaching its final year, the outcomes already include prototypes, experimental platforms and testbeds. The Workshop will include a tutorial and demonstration of open Radio Access Networks, with application to real virtualized and open 4G and 5G networks, provided by IS-Wireless, and one morning dedicated to Visible Light Communications towards 6G (with a perspective from research on VLC at University of Oulu’s 6G Flagship and UC3M). The last day will also include talks and visits to the ORCIP (Optical Radio Convergence Infrastructure for Communications and Power Delivering) and the Aveiro STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Mathematics) City initiative toward digital transformation.

The attendance is free of charge but registration is mandatory. Registration is open until Sunday, May 29. The registration is concluded just after you fill out the form here.

Keynote Speaker

Towards 6G with Visible Light Communications Technology: Opportunities and Challenges

The concept of VLC was introduced about twenty years ago, at the height of 3G. VLC was presented as a capable technology able to offer competitive wireless communication capabilities and unique advantages compared to conventional short-range radio systems. VLC was expected to take an important role in the subsequent generations of mobile and wireless communications. However, the practical use of VLC is still quite limited today, even though VLC is a quite mature technology that has been widely demonstrated. Opportunities and challenges of VLC technology in 6G will be discussed, particularly considering the current development of mobile and wireless communications. As research in 6G is gaining momentum, VLC has a unique opportunity to become a key communication component of the 6G ecosystem. In this talk, the research activities on VLC currently carried out at the 6G Flagship will also be presented and discussed. First, the 6G Flagship program at University of Oulu, Finland, will be briefly introduced. Three research topics will be then presented. 6G is expected to exploit both radio and optical communications and thus, research on hybrid optical-radio networks will be discussed, including the development of a reconfigurable hybrid network testbed. Then, our work towards sustainable IoT will be presented. Self-powered IoT nodes exploiting light for wireless data and energy transmission will be presented. In the work, also sustainable implementation of the IoT nodes will be considered. Finally, the use of optical communications for highly secure in-body and other medical-related wireless communications will be discussed. An experimental testbed developed to study this novel type of communications will also be presented.

Marcos Katz is a professor at the Centre for Wireless Communications, University of Oulu, Finland, since Dec. 2009. He received the B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from Universidad Nacional de Tucumán, Argentina in 1987, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from University of Oulu, Finland, in 1995 and 2002, respectively. He worked in different positions at Nokia, Finland between 1987 and 2001. In years 2003–2005 Dr. Katz was the Principal Engineer at Samsung Electronics, Advanced Research Lab., Telecommunications R&D Center, Suwon, Korea. From 2006 to 2009 he worked as a Chief Research Scientist at VTT, the Technical Research Centre of Finland. Prof. Katz served as the chair of Working Group 5 (on short-range communications) for the Wireless World Research Forum (WWRF) in 2008-2012. Prof. Katz is a member of the 6G Flagship Programme, and he is currently working on different VLC topics as well as on the system architecture for the upcoming 6G.

How to get to Aveiro?

The town of Aveiro is located about 60Km south of Porto and 250Km north of Lisbon, close to the sea. The nearest airports are Lisbon and Porto. From these airports, Aveiro can be easily reached by train via the 'north line' or by car via the 'high-way A1'.

Railway Connections:

The train is probably the most comfortable way to travel to Aveiro. There are many daily connections starting from Lisbon and Porto. You may look up the timetables at the site of the Portuguese Railways.

If you arrive at Porto (Sá Carneiro Airport), you have to go to the Campanhã railway station. The cheapest way is to get the metro at the airport (line E) and step down at the Campanhã stop. Alternatively, you can take a taxi to "Campanhã" railway station. The trip should take around 20 minutes, without traffic jams. The fare should be around 30 Euro (with luggage). Another alternative is through the Aerobus which provides a fast connection between the airport, the city´s leading hotels and Porto downtown. From “Campanhã” railway station it takes about 35-60 minutes from Porto to Aveiro, depending on if it is a fast or suburban train, and there are trains about twice an hour.

If you arrive at Lisbon International Airport, take the tube (just three stations away) or a taxi to "Oriente" railway station. The trip should take about 10 minutes, but this may vary depending on the existing traffic. The fare should be near 10 Euro (with luggage). From “Oriente” railway station it takes about 2h30-3h to reach Aveiro, using the fast trains (Alfa, Intercities).

Road Connections:

You may rent a car at the airport. From Sá Carneiro Airport (Porto), take highway A1, direction "Sul". After about 70 km, take the exit "Aveiro". From Lisbon International Airport, take the highway A1, direction "Norte". After about 250 km take the exit "Aveiro".

Staying in Aveiro:

There is the possibility of staying by the night in Aveiro, in the Hotels Salinas or Aveiro Center. For more details on this, please contact the organizer of the event at the email contact: Prof. Fernando Velez (fjv@ubi.pt)
