The school is also supported by  the CrossLab project (Departments of Excellence)

The 2021 edition of the Summer School ‘5G: Enabling Technologies, Opportunities and Research Challenges Ahead’ is organized to offer 6 ECTS (48 hours of front lessons) in the broad field of 5G networks, targeting an audience of Bachelor (last year), Master and PhD students, early stage researchers and practitioners from Academia or Industry. 

Together with high-capacity fixed networks, 5G will provide the connectivity needed for the digital transformation. With respect to previous generations, 5G constitutes a revolutionary transformation of communications: its new radio improves performance in terms of speed, latency, terminal density and power consumption. However, the real novelty of 5G is the revolution it entails in terms of creating and facilitating new and diversified services and enabling new non-human users. Thanks to its software network and full integration with the cloud, 5G will enable new use scenarios, with a significant impact in every sector: agriculture, commerce, defence, energy, finance, health, industry, media, public administration, safety, transport.

The summer school provides lessons, from the industry and academic community, about the enabling technologies and methodologies in 5G networks and applications. The 5G Summer School aspires to give attendees the opportunity to learn about the architecture and promise of 5G networks. No prior familiarity with the technology is required, and the intent is to give the attendees a solid foundation in the technology, the current issues and the key user benefits. Lectures will be given by ICT experts in 5G from the ‘’Dipartimento di Ingegneria dell’Informazione’’, University of Pisa.

A final exam is foreseen. After passing the exam the University of Pisa will register the course as an official exam of 6 ECTS.

Final Exam

The final exam will consist in a written examination that will be assigned by the scientific coordinators (Prof. Luca Sanguinetti and Prof. Marco Moretti) on July 12, 2021 and will have to be returned to them via email (luca.sanguinetti@unipi.it and marco.moretti@unipi.it), by July 30, 2021 23:59 pm (CEST).

Who can apply

Bachelor (last year), Master and PhD students, in the field of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Management) disciplines, early stage researchers and practitioners from Academia or Industry.
