Invited Speakers

Bio Hans van den Berg
Prof. dr. Hans van den Berg has more than 30 years of experience in ICT research and innovation. His main contributions are in the field of design and performance optimization of communication networks and services. He has been active in many national and European research projects and was co-founder and vice-chair of the recently finished EU COST Action “Autonomous Control for a Reliable Internet of Services” (COST ACROSS). In 2017 he received ITC's Arne Jensen Lifetime Achievement Award for his contributions in the field. Hans van den Berg started his professional career at the research labs of the Dutch telecom operator KPN in 1990. Since July 2003, he is senior scientist at TNO and holds a part-time position as full professor within the research group Design and Analysis of Communication Systems at the University of Twente. From 2016 to 2019 he was also affiliated with the Centre for Mathematics and Computer Science (CWI) in Amsterdam.

Abstract title: 5G and Beyond
Emerging 5G mobile network technology is widely recognized as key technology for realizing massive IoT and achieving fundamental transitions in major economic sectors. The high potential of 5G is not only due to the ambitious design objectives regarding e.g. network capacity, transmission speeds and latency. Even more important for 5G’s innovative strength are the introduction of new communication paradigms, the integration of mobile networking and cloud computing (Multi-access Edge Computing - MEC) as well as the definition of open interfaces enabling cross-utilization of network and application data. These 5G features will provide great opportunities for new players in the ICT ecosystem and boost the development of new, advanced mobile applications. In the presentation we will first briefly review the 5G design objectives and technology innovations. Next, challenges regarding network management and operations are discussed that need to be solved in order to realize the full potential of 5G and enable widespread deployment. In particular, we elaborate on the need for AI to deal with the enormous complexity of 5G network management. Vice versa it will be shown how 5G will serve the use of AI in other domains, and enable new highly demanding applications like AR/VR for e.g. collaborative working and telerobotics for remote control and maintenance in the context of smart industry. We will also discuss the state-of-the-art in 5G standardization, 5G field-labs and the commercial roll-out of 5G in the coming years. Finally an outlook to 6G is given. What is 6G and what will it bring beyond 5G? What are the main technical challenges and what is the state-of-the-art in 6G research?
