CHALLENGES OF OPTICAL COMMUNICATIONS IN THE 6G ERA: A VIEW FROM EU PROJECTS
The 27th International Conference on Optical Network Design and Modelling (ONDM 2023) taking place in Coimbra, Portugal, during 8th to 11th of May will have a strong representation of DESIRE6G participants.
Six different European research projects have been invited to share their perspective in the workshop called CHALLENGES OF OPTICAL COMMUNICATIONS IN THE 6G ERA. Given that most DESIRE6G partners are experienced participants of H2020 and now Horizon Europe projects, some DESIRE6G members will be at the workshop as organizers and representing other projects. This represents a great opportunity to connect, share knowledge and create synergies among similar ICT projects.
