6G vision and key values

Gustav WikströmSession chair: Gustav Wikström is a Research Leader at Ericsson Research, Sweden. He has a backgr​​​ound in Experimental Particle Physics and received his Ph.D. from Stockholm University in 2009, after M.Sc. studies in Engineering Physics in Lund, Uppsala, and Rennes. After Post-doc studies in Geneva, he joined Ericsson in 2011. He has been driving the evolution of network performance tools and studies and worked with WLAN enhancements toward IEEE. Until 2018 he was the driver of latency and reliability improvements (URLLC) in LTE and NR, and since then he is focusing on driving the B5G/6G development. He has co-authored over 90 academic papers and over 100 filed patent families and has been part of several international research collaborations.


Tommy SvenssonSession chair: Tommy Svensson is full Professor in Communication Systems at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden, where he is leading the Wireless Systems research on air interface and wireless backhaul networking technologies for future wireless systems. He received a Ph.D. in Information theory from Chalmers in 2003, and he has worked at Ericsson AB with core networks, radio access networks, and microwave transmission products. 
He was involved in the European WINNER and ARTIST4G projects that made important contributions to the 3GPP LTE standards, the EU FP7 METIS and the EU H2020 5GPPP mmMAGIC and 5GCar projects towards 5G and currently the Hexa-X, RISE-6G and SEMANTIC projects towards 6G, as well as in the ChaseOn antenna systems excellence center at Chalmers targeting mm-wave and (sub)-THz solutions for 5G/6G access, backhaul/ fronthaul and V2X scenarios. 
His research interests include design and analysis of physical layer algorithms, multiple access, resource allocation, cooperative systems, moving networks, and satellite networks. He has co-authored 5 books, 98 journal papers, 131 conference papers and 56 public EU projects deliverables. He is Chairman of the IEEE Sweden joint Vehicular Technology/ Communications/ Information Theory Societies chapter, founding editorial board member and editor of IEEE JSAC Series on Machine Learning in Communications and Networks, has been editor of IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, IEEE Wireless Communications Letters, Guest editor of several top journals, organized several tutorials and workshops at top IEEE conferences, and served as coordinator of the Communication Engineering Master’s Program at Chalmers. 

Digital Inclusion

Patrik RugelandSession chair: Patrik Rugeland received the M.Sc. in engineering physics in 2009 and Ph.D. in applied physics in 2013 from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm, Sweden. In 2014 he joined the Wireless Access Network department at Ericsson Research, Stockholm, Sweden, and has since been working on standardization and concept development for LTE-Advanced and NR with a focus on radio network architecture and protocols, primarily towards 3GPP RAN2 in a role as both individual contributor and as a team leader. He is currently the technical manager in the EU funded 6G research project Hexa-X and he currently has filed more than 75 patents in the area.


Andreas WolfgangSession chair: Dr.Andreas Wolfgang received his Dipl. Ing. degree in electrical engineering from Technical University of Karlsruhe, Germany, 2003 and his Ph.D. degree in Computer Science form University of Southampton in 2007. From 2007 to 2009 he was with the Signal and Systems department at Chalmers University of Technology as a PostDoc before joining QRT. At QRT he is a senior system engineer at QRT, where he as been with microwave and mm-wave communication solutions, both on the analogue and the digital side. 
Besides communication systems, he has been working with radar solutions in the 10 GHz and the 77GHz band. During his time at QRT he has been system responsible for several product development projects and driving QRT’s research activities. Dr. Wolfgang has been part of H2020 projects earlier, such as mmMagic where he has been working on mmWave waveform design.
