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.
A competition was part of this summit and was open to students and early career researchers from all over the world who proposed novel solutions for digital inclusion. A team of four students from Communication Theory Lab (CTL) consisting of Aniq Ur Rahman, Fares Fourati, Maurilo Matracia, and Malek Khammassi secured the first position through their work: “Cactus Mesh”.
