Keynote title: Edge Computing and Aerial Support in 6G Wireless Networks

Abstract: Research on the Sixth Generation Cellular Networks (6G) has already been started while the deployment of the new Fifth Generation Cellular Networks (5G) has only got started around the world. It would take some time before we get the full picture of credibility of 5G, but researchers already know that it would suffer from a range of shortcomings with the introduction of new applications and thus; the need for work on its successor 6G. What we know and expect at this time is that we still need to make users closer to the network edges, thus the inclusion of edge computing; and that we need more autonomous and intelligent techniques in the form of advanced machine learning and artificial intelligence. At the same time, we know that terrestrial network components will have fundamentally physical limitations in providing coverage and accessibility needed in future networks. That would bring the involvement of more of aerial support including drones and low earth orbit satellites. This talk will provide some visionary concepts of the future mobile networks that contemplate edge computing and aerial support using results from some existing intelligent techniques.
