September 28-30, 2021
Everyday 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. (AST)
The second edition of the 6G Summit on Connecting the Unconnected will be held virtually from September 28 – September 30, 2021. As part of The Decade of Digital Inclusion, a semester-long master class from the Marconi Society, the summit will present and discuss the latest technical and research advances in 6G global connectivity.
Unlike any technology before it, 6G is expected to truly democratize high-speed internet connectivity in under-covered, and under-developed regions of the world. As it is created against the backdrop of the United Nations’ 2030 Sustainable Development Goals and informed by a clear, pandemic-driven view of the costs of the digital divide, digital equity will be front and center in the planning and development of 6G technology.
Organized by KAUST Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering Mohamed-Slim Alouini, the online event will be spread over four sessions, five hours and numerous panels. A host of international researchers and experts in internet and Communication Technology (ICT) and Wireless Communications System (WCS) will present and discuss the technical possibilities, social impact and critical considerations in using 6G to provide connectivity and opportunity for all regions of the world.
