Focus on 6G initiatives
Numerous 6G initiatives around the world are currently being heavily promoted by scientists, politicians and business representatives. This year's CONASENSE Symposium already generated significant impetus from a scientific perspective. Research efforts into 6G require an interdisciplinary approach involving communications, sensing/IoT, navigation, satellites and sustainable services that can stimulate the development of new business models and new societal applications.
After the highly successful international CONASENSE workshop in 2021, the event took place again this year with a symposium format at the Munich Highlight Towers, both on-site and in hybrid mode. The event was co-organized by Prof. Dr. Rute Sofia, head of the fortiss IIoT field of competence and Prof. Ramjee Prasad from Aarhus University in Herning, Denmark.
First-class IoT expertise in Munich and online
Interesting keynote speeches from Felizitas Müller (IBM), Florian Küster (UnternehmerTUM), Gaël Blondelle (Eclipse Foundation) and Avik Santra (Infineon) offered an interesting introduction to the first-class two-day symposium. Leading scientists and IT specialists presented their latest research results, providing insight into groundbreaking projects and interesting perspectives on future business models, use cases and mobile services.
This included presentations and keynote speeches by international experts from industry and academia, as well as technical tracks with peer-reviewed papers focusing on specific CONASENSE topics. The EU IoT Hackathon, an event jointly hosted by fortiss and UnternehmerTUM Makerspace with a focus on mobile sustainable IoT solutions, was held parallel to the symposium.
Co-organizer and fortiss IoT specialist Prof. Dr. Rute Sofia summarized this year's event, which had a total of 90 on-site and hybrid participants: "We followed 2021 with another highly successful CONASENSE Symposium this year. The proven format once again provided an excellent interdisciplinary platform for scientists and experts to present their techno-economic ideas to take Vision 6G another step forward."
