D6. Electrical, Electronic, and Informational Engineering

In recent years Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has drastically evolved in multifold directions at an accelerated pace. Advancements of semiconductors, communication technologies, front-end/back-end software engineering, and various engineering fields are intertwined together yielding emerging technologies, which even expedite development and collaboration. Various relevant R&BD topics attract multiple interdisciplinary societies, seeing vast amount of opportunities in research and business. Innovative companies and research organizations successfully show up their challenging ideas, which create new user experiences, thereby making digital personalization come true. Some keywords in these regards include: artificial intelligence (AI), 5G, IoT, AR/VR, blockchain, etc. It goes without saying that high-speed networks and ultra-scale data centers in systems and associated components in subsystems play essential roles as enablers to realize such technologies. In the following sessions, we aim to cover recent R&D activities in EU and Korea on the state-of-the-art ICT while discussing technological hurdles and on-going evolutions in it . Topics mainly covered are AI, various sensors and their relevant technologies, 5G, wired and wireless communications, and high-frequency applications.

Synopsis
The mobile communication technology has been evolving approximately every 10 years since its introduction. Now, the technology is advancing again from its 4th generation (4G, LTE) to the 5th generation (5G, NR). The 5G technology does not only expand the capacity of the mobile network from its predecessor, but also shifts the network paradigm from the infrastructure-oriented network to the software-driven network. Therefore, the 5G transition is expected to change the way of living from almost all dimensions such as entertainment, housekeeping, communication, healthcare, industry, education, and commute. However, such enormous changes cannot be driven by a single organization, and thus many companies and academic institutes are collaboratively working towards realizing open and standardized 5G ecosystem. Panels of this session are working in different sectors of industry and academy, but pursuing the common purpose that is to apply benefits of the 5G mobile technology to our daily life. We will organize the session in two streams. Panels will 1) briefly introduce changes that 5G will bring us in the near future from the viewpoint of their research/work areas, then 2) discuss challenges that the 5G communities are currently dealing with.

Synopsis
Rapid advances in semiconductor integration technologies, high frequency materials and electronics, and the next generation wired and wireless communication system allow us to do many things that have not been possible before, for example, 5G, Internet of Things (IoT), and high-speed lower-power data centers. In parallel to this, the unique properties of electromagnetic waves enables the use of RF and Microwave technology as a platform for interdisciplinary research projects on healthcare applications and biology studies in tackling global challenges such as non-invasive physiological signal monitoring. This session not only focuses on RF and microwave circuits and system design for the next generation wireless and wired communications, but also aims to invite researchers involved in interdisciplinary research projects who work with RF and microwave engineers.

Synopsis
Our life is often exposed to environment surrounding hazardous substances, materials, chemicals gases. For instance, the fine particulate matters occurred from mainly combustion in industry and road transport effect to human respiratory health, the interest and importance are getting increased. Particulate matter (PM), also known as particle pollution, is a complex mixture of extremely small particles and liquid droplets that get into the air. This complex mixture contains for instance dust, pollen, soot, smoke, and liquid droplets. Therefore it is very important to develop sensing technologies to get the PM data as well as to have more good quality data and monitoring. In this session, we will cover - Devices which sense chemicals, gases, light, and particles - Methodology for data collection - Efficient sensor PM Data collection - Air quality & pollution estimation and monitoring - Human health impact by PM
