Open Lecture 5 – Channel Modeling


To share the progress and results of the 6G research work and knowledge with the extended one6G community, one6G launches a series of open lectures. These interactive 2-hour online events are open to anyone interested in the world’s journey toward 6G.

Following the success of the four previous lectures, the Association is happy to confirm that Open Lecture 5 will take place on February 23, 2023, at 13h30 CET, covering the subject of “Channel Modeling”. The event will feature presentations delivered by three high-level speakers, followed by a Panel discussion and an interactive Q&A session.  

Attendance is free, but registration is mandatory. Please click the button below to fill in your registration form.
