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

December 14, 2021 | USA

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.

OTHER PAST CONFERENCES

2022 IEEE on Conference Virtual Reality and 3D User Interfaces (VR)

March 12-16, 2022 | New Zealand

The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our priority. After evaluating the current COVID-19 situation in New Zealand and the uncertainty around International travel, the decision has been made to transform the in-person component of IEEE VR 2022 into an all-digital conference experience and will now be an online event. Therefore, IEEE VR 2022 will no longer take place in Christchurch, New Zealand and will instead take place virtually. The conference dates remain the same (12 – 16 March 2022). Proceedings will not be cancelled, and publications will continue as planned. Our goal is to provide the best experience for virtual attendees, following in the historical footsteps of the virtual experience of VR 2020 in Atlanta and VR 2021 in Lisbon.

2022 8th International Conference of the Immersive Learning Research Network (iLRN)

May 30-June 4, 2022 | Austria

The 8th International Conference of the Immersive Learning Research Network (iLRN 2022) will be an innovative and interactive virtual gathering for a strengthening global network of researchers and practitioners collaborating to develop the scientific, technical, and applied potential of immersive learning. It is the premier scholarly event focusing on advances in the use of virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MR), and other extended reality (XR) technologies to support learners across the entire span of learning, from K-12 through higher education to work-based, informal, and lifelong learning contexts. Previous conferences were held face-to-face, offering knowledge exchange and open discussions in scientific presentation streams, poster sessions and panels complemented with hands-on demonstrations. In 2020 and 2021, the conference was held entirely online, bringing 3,600 attendees from across the globe. This year we plan to have a hybrid event.
