4th IEEE 5G Workshop on First Responder and Tactical Networks

5g
5G is not just the next evolution of 4G technology; it's a paradigm shift. It is expected to enable fundamentally new applications — with much more stringent requirements in latency and bandwidth — and provide resiliency and flexibility to the underlying network. Several standards organizations and forums, namely IEEE, the 3rd Generation Partnership Project, and the International Telecommunication Union, are working on defining the architecture and standardizing aspects of 5G technologies. However, few organizations are focusing on how such technologies can be useful to tactical and first responder networks. IEEE is hosting the fourth workshop in this series on 14 December 2021. It is the result of partnership and collaboration with the Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate (DHS S&T, the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab (JHU/APL), and the Office of Under Secretary of Defense for research and Engineering (OUSD R&E) - 5G. This workshop will explore the applicability of 5G technologies for tactical and first responder networks, offer solutions, share use cases, and investigate research opportunities and challenges. The event will also provide an opportunity for 5G experts from industry and academia, as well as the standards, regulatory, homeland security, public safety and defense communities, to collaborate.

Nordic AI & Metaverse Summit

February 2, 2024 | Denmark

Danish Industry (DI) and the Copenhagen Institute for Futures Studies (CIFS) have once again joined forces to let Nordic stakeholders investigate AI, and the immersive internet will develop across industries. This allows you to be prepared for what is to come and become aware of the impact it might have on your business - whether your organisation is a private entity or a governmental institution. The first edition of the Nordic Metaverse Summit was held in 2023 and was completely sold-out. The Nordic AI & Metaverse Summit is a conference that aims to bring together Nordic Business leaders and frontrunners to explore how the Metaverse, AI, and emerging technologies, in general, might impact our future from both a commercial and consumer standpoint - giving the participants the tools to be able to act now instead of finding themselves operating in worlds designed by and for someone else.
