The 2024 EuCNC & 6G Summit will take place from the 3rd to the 6th of June in Antwerp, Belgium. Combining two successful telecoms conferences: ECNC (European Conference on Networks and Communications), supported by the European Commission, and the 6G Summit, originating from Finland’s 6G Flagship programme, the event is now one of the largest in the sector. 

It brings together cutting-edge research and world-renowned industries and companies, globally attracting over 900 delegates from more than 40 countries around the world in recent years. PREDICT-6G returns for the second consecutive year, to repeat the successes of the 2023 edition and establish itself as one of the leading projects in 6G.

PREDICT-6G will be present in three workshops, both in the organisational part and in the presentations slots:

“Architectural Considerations Enabling the IMT 2030 Framework by European 6G R&D Activities”. This workshop, proposed by PREDICT-6G consortium members InterDigital Europe Ltd, Nokia and Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, together with NEC Laboratories Europe, Eurescom and Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, will present the 6G SNS projects architectural design innovations, challenges and opportunities, combined with early findings and potential impacts towards 6G, around six usage scenarios and four overarching aspects. 

The workshop is formed around the six IMT 2030 usage scenarios set out by the ITU-R, complemented by the four overarching aspects on sustainability, connecting the unconnected, ubiquitous intelligence and security/resilience. Each IMT usage scenario will be addressed by a consolidated presentation from multiple relevant projects from the 6G Architecture Working Group, including PREDICT-6G.

“Trials, Pilots and Demos for Selected Verticals: the Experimental Way Forward towards 6G”. This workshop, co-organised by the 6G-SANDBOX, 6G-XR, FIDAL, SNS-ICE and PREDICT-6G projects, will share the views, achievements, and lessons learnt from the realisation of early trials, pilots and demonstrations in the respective projects. It will also provide information and guidance on how third parties can benefit from the experimental infrastructure being developed by these projects to carry out additional experimental work.

Collectively, the SNS projects taking part in this workshop have in-depth knowledge and practical insights in key verticals for the EU economy such as industrial manufacturing, media and entertainment, gaming, public protection and disaster relief, or smart cities. This will guarantee a balanced coverage in the technical sessions, as well as the exchange of valuable and diverse points of view in the final panel discussion.

“The 6G series workshop by Hexa-X-II”. This workshop, organised by the european 6G flagship research project Hexa-X-II, will address the conference tracks ‘PHY—Physical Layer and Fundamentals’, ‘WOS – Wireless, Optical and Satellite Networks’, ‘NET – Network Softwarization’ ‘AIU Applications, IoT, Use Cases’ and ‘6G Visions and Sustainability’, by providing an overview on the 6G research from the major European players. This will be accomplished by inviting other SNS JU Stream B 6G technical enabler projects to present, such as PREDICT-6G.

The workshop is divided into 4 sessions of 90 minutes, and it will be in session 3 – 6G Architecture (90 min) where the coordinator of PREDICT-6G, Antonio de la Oliva (Universidad Carlos III de Madrid) will participate. He will give a 12-minute presentation entitled ‘The importance of predictability in 6G networks’.
