Special session

Results from WWRF - Visions to Drive Research and Standardization

Wednesday, 22 June 2005, 11:00-13:00
Room: Großer Saal
Chair: Mikko Uusitalo, WWRF chair, Head of International Cooperation, Nokia

The objective of WWRF (http://www.wireless-world-research.org/) is to formulate visions on strategic future research directions in the wireless field, among industry and academia, and to generate, identify, and promote research areas and technical trends for mobile and wireless system technologies.

In 2005 WWRF's workplan aims to develop a system concept with high-level architecture, to update its vision of the future wireless world and to work on old and new white papers and WWRF briefings.

The WWRF is unique in bringing together industry and academia world-wide in an active discussion of new concepts, algorithms and techniques, and how new insights will impact on service provision in typical application areas and on value chains in the future. Being a global Forum, WWRF contributes heavily to a common ground for future standardisation and therefore to reduction of risks in research investments. The Forum is open to all actors sharing its objectives.

This session will highlight results of WWRF.
