Future mobile networks and connectivity systems will require ultra-high speed and seamless performance for a huge number of connected devices and applications. Higher frequencies, and more specifically the TeraHertz range (0.1 THz – 10 THz) is seen as one of the promising way to address these requirements. But today, many fundamental scientific and technological challenges are still to be explored and overcome.
At the same time, allocation of the bands for THz communication is not yet done. It is thus also important to start, as early as possible, the identification of candidate bands which will be optimal from a technological point of view, while at the same time answering to the needs in the most promising and highly desirable verticals applications and use cases.
This 3rd workshop (being organised by the Beyond5G Cluster) aims at bringing together key actors currently working on, or having interest, in THz communications in order to explore future R&I challenges for beyond 5G. The main goal of the workshop will be to have an overview of the current state of the art and emerging results of the research in this area, to discuss the main challenges still to be explored, to highlight key research directions for future R&I actions and discern Industry uptake and advances in the area of THz Communications.
