The Marconi Society organized the second 6G Summit on Connected the Unconnected in partnership with KAUST. The summit was a three-day virtual event that brought together experts from technology and policy-making to discuss ideas that can accelerate the process of connecting the unconnected population to the internet.
Through the Connect2Recover initiative, the United Nations International Telecom Union (ITU) has organized the "Connect2Recover Research Competition" to identify promising research proposals that will accelerate digital inclusion during the COVID-19 recovery globally.
In the context of sixth-generation (6G) networks, emergency management systems based on wireless communications are gaining interest. In an incoming magazine paper, CTL researchers discussed fundamentals and open problems of post-disaster communications with a special focus on the topological aspects.
KAUST successfully hosted the 15th General Conference of The World Academy of Science (TWAS). During this conference a panel on "Digital inclusion: Challenges and opportunities for connecting the unconnected in the post-COVID era,” was organized and moderated on Thursday, Nov.4, 2021, by Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering Dr.
The deployment of the 5th-generation cellular networks (5G) has triggered health concerns from the electric and magnetic fields (EMF) exposure. Such fear increases for networks that adopt higher frequency bands such as millimeter-waves.
The ongoing deployment of the fifth-generation cellular network (5G) has attracted wide attention and controversy from researchers and non-specialists. Attitudes toward 5G and beyond are quite different that some even regard these new technologies as threats.
