Workshop on Synergies of Communication, Localization, and Sensing towards 6G at ICC 2022

Workshop on Synergies of Communication, Localization, and Sensing towards 6G at ICC 2022
LOCUS together with HEXA-X, RISE-6G, ARIADNE, and REINDEER is organizing a workshop at ICC 2022. The workshop will focus on the synergies among localization, sensing, and communications within the 6G ecosystem, which require a common venue, not focusing on any specific technological enabler, but rather support a broad and diverse set of viewpoints, including those from industry (telecom and radar industries) and academia (communications, signal processing, and circuits communities). For a more detailed topic list, and the CFP see the following link on our website: https://www.locus-project.eu/...
