The Center for Wireless Communications (CWC) at UC San Diego is holding its third annual 5G Forum to investigate what new applications and user experiences can be enabled by 5G, including Smart Cities, Smart Manufacturing and Virtual Reality. Speakers will also explore the requirements that need to be met by 5G networks and devices, and how new innovations in 5G radio architectures, circuits, applications and network analytics can satisfy these requirements.

As in our previous 5G Forums, industry leaders and experts from different industry segments, together with experts from academia, will participate as speakers and panelists. The Forum will conclude with a planning session which will help shape 5G innovations in CWC, ECE, member companies, and beyond.
