PIMRC’21 RIS Workshop: Joint AIMM, ARIADNE, and RISE-6G Workshop on Reconfigurable Intelligent Surfaces
The PIMRC’21 Workshop on RIS, jointly hosted by AIMM, ARIADNE, and 6G-RISE project consortiums, took place on the September 13, 2021. The workshop program included the following keynotes by three distinguished experts on the topic:
- Rebuilding the theoretical foundations of Communications and Computing”, by Prof. Mérouane Debbah, Technology Innovation Institute, Abu Dhabi,
- “Reconfigurable Intelligent Surfaces for Wideband Communications: Challenges and Possible Solutions”, by Prof. Emil Björnson, Linköping University, Sweden, and
- “Network Operator requirements and use-cases for Reconfigurable Intelligent Surfaces”, by Fraser Burton, British Telecommunications plc, United Kingdom.
The workshop provided an excellent opportunity to discuss the latest research progress on the technology as well as the road ahead for standardisation, and eventually deployment of RIS.
