Welcome to the IEEE WCNC 2019 Workshop on Enabling Ultra Reliability and Low Latency Communications for 5G and Beyond (EURCOMM) to be held in Marrakech, Morocco on 15-18th April 2019!!!
At a time when mobile networks must meet the new demands of human communication and vertical industries go through key technological transformations, transmission reliability is critical for safety in many up and coming verticals including Health, Automotive, Industrial Automation, Energy and Entertainment. Equally, low latency is crucial to ensure applications are usable and interactive when there is human-to-human, human-to-machine or machine-to-machine communication. Ultra-reliable Low-latency Communications (URLLC) networks have been envisioned for delivering these stringent requirements, particularly on availability, latency, and reliability. However, designing URLLC networks poses critical challenges including reliability requirements for both data and control channels, particularly in the downlink direction, the need for accurate and flexible link adaptation and reducing the processing time of data retransmissions.
EURCOMM aims at conjoining researchers from academia and industry to exchange innovative ideas, contribute and collaborate towards conception and development of efficient URLLC networks.
