The IEEE 5G Initiative includes a series of high-impact one-day Summits in emerging technology areas related to the 5th Generation of cellular technology. Summits occur around the world, with the first held at Princeton University on May 26, 2015.

We are pleased to announce the first IEEE 5G Summit with a focus on the hardware that is enabling the vision of 5G technology. Experts will discuss all facets of hardware development, from power amplifiers to filters and front-end modules to phased arrays and other mmWave antennas. The Summit will end with a panel session discussing the trade-offs between bandwidth, efficiency, battery life, complexity and cost in “What do we need to build 5G mmWave mobile handsets?”  Panel members are Dylan Williams (Lead), Dev PalmerHarish KrishnaswamyRoger NicholsFarshid Aryanfar, and Peter Moosbrugger.

These one-day summits provide a platform for industry leaders, innovators, and researchers from the industry and academic community to collaborate and exchange ideas in this emerging technology that may help in driving standards and rapid deployment.
