[ Swiss Research Foundation for Electricity and Mobile Communication | Workshop on Millimeter waves ]


Event details

Date and time 28.05.2019  
Category Conferences - Seminars
Registrations are open until May 28 for the Swiss Research Foundation for Electricity and Mobile Communication (FSM) Workshop on “Millimetre waves - state of the art in research”.
The workshop will be held in Zurich on 18 and 19 June 2019.
Millimetre waves (MMW) will most likely be used in Europe by 5G mobile phone technology in a few years' time. The workshop will present the state-of-the-art knowledge on millimetre wave biological effects, explain the metrology and modeling challenges, and will guide the ongoing discussions on standardization and limits.
Furthermore, there will be plenty of opportunities to discuss and network.
The workshop is aimed at people from the public administration, industry, science, civil society and the media, who are interested in the upcoming mobile radio technology based on the so-called millimetre waves. This frequency range is not yet completely standardized and approved. The workshop will present the state of the art in millimetre wave biological effects, highlight challenges in modeling the interaction of these waves with the skin, and inform about the state of regulation in terms of frequency usage and health protection.
Note that some presentations will be in English, most, however, in German.
