Wireless Congress: Systems & Applications

14.-15. November 2018, Munich, Germany


15 years of wireless experience. In 2004 the Wireless Congress: Systems & Applications started in parallel to electronica. Today the Wireless Congress: Systems & Applications is one of the major meeting places for the wireless community, providing the well-established platform for wireless professionals – researcher, developer and application engineers – and the forum of excellence for exchange of knowledge and experience.

Celebrating the 15th anniversary, we will look ahead to new wireless technologies, like 5G and intelligent tactile systems and the application practice of advanced wireless systems, like Low Power Wide Area Networks, Bluetooth mesh, etc. Today, wireless professionals can choose the best fitting wireless technology for their application from a cornucopia of competing or complementary wireless technologies. But they have to balance cost, complexity, performance, reliability and quality of service in real world environments.

Highlights Day 2

5G - the Door Opener to 6G?
Prof. Dr. Gerhard Fettweis l Vodafone/TU Dresden

Gerhard Fettweis has been Professor of Communications Engineering at the TU Dresden since 1994. Since 2012 he coordinates the Cluster of Excellence Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden (cfaed) and the DFG Collaborative Research Center "Highly Adaptive Energy Efficient Computing (HAEC)" for the TU Dresden. In 2014, he also initiated the "5G Lab Germany" at Dresden University of Technology, where TUD scientists in electrical engineering and computer science are working on the further development of mobile radio. 14 start-ups were founded at his professorship. The scientist, who was born in Antwerp, Belgium, in 1962, studied electrical engineering at RWTH Aachen University, where he received his doctorate in 1990.


Semiconductor technologies for 5G applications
Nadine Collaerts, Ph.D. | IMEC

Nadine Collaert received the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the ESAT Department, KU Leuven, Belgium, in 1995 and 2000, respectively. Since then, she has been involved in the theory, design, and technology of FinFET devices, emerging memory devices, transducers for biomedical applications and the integration and characterization of biocompatible materials e.g. carbon-based materials. From 2012 until April 2016 she was program manager of the imec LOGIC program, focusing on high mobility channels, TFET and nanowires. Since April 2016 she is a distinguished member of technical staff, responsible for the research on novel CMOS scaling approaches and RF technologies based on heterogeneous integration of new materials with Si and new material-enabled device and system approaches to increase functionality. She has authored or co-authored more than 300 papers in international journals and conference proceedings, and she holds more than 10 patents in the field of device design and process technology. She has been a member of the CDT committee of the IEDM conference and she is still a member of the Program Committees of the international conferences ESSDERC, ULIS/EUROSOI, S3S and the VLSI Technology Symposium.
