Title: ​Challenges and opportunities in 6G mobile communications

Research towards the 6th generation (6G) of mobile communications is ongoing. In this talk I will introduce our ongoing EU H2020 6G Flagship Hexa-X project. The Hexa-X project aims to lay the foundation for the future mobile networks by defining a 6G vision and exploring key potential technological enablers such as sub-THz communication, joint communication and sensing, cloudification & virtualization, and machine learning & artificial intelligence. It also aims to identify how 6G can play an important societal role towards meeting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). I will then discuss key challenges and opportunities and the potential role of ML/AI techniques in 6G, followed by an overview of some of our ongoing research towards 6G.


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 and RISE-6G 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. 


Tommy's 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, 100 journal papers, 132 conference papers and 60 public EU projects deliverables. He is founding editorial board member and editor of IEEE JSAC Series on Machine Learning in Communications and Networks, has been Chairman of the awards winning IEEE Sweden joint Vehicular Technology/ Communications/ Information Theory Societies chapter, editor of IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, EEE 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.
