EuCNC 2018 (June 18-21, Ljubljana, Slovenia) is the 27th edition of a successful series of technical conferences in the field of telecommunications, sponsored by IEEE ComSoc and EURASIP, and financially supported by the European Commission. The conference brings together researchers from all over the world to present their latest advances, being one of the main venues for showcasing the outcomes of successful European R&D programmes.

In this exciting context, 5G-MEDIA will have an active participation in several workshops and activities to outline how the project is streamlining the Media Industry with the Power of 5G and with the cooperation with the European 5G PPP Community.

Workshop 1: Vertical Industries & Services for 5G (VIS5G)

The workshop, which is jointly organised by 5G-MEDIA, will drive vertical industry adoption of 5G by promoting and nurturing research in applications of 5G communications. Experts on 5G will discuss the possible vertical applications of 5G, as well as how the envisioned applications are growing with the development of standards.
