On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we would like to invite you to participate in Worldwide 5G Industry Fora Session 2020 ( in conjunction with the IEEE 5G World Forum 2020 ( to be held on 10 September - 10 October 2020.

Worldwide 5G Industry Fora Session 2020
*5G Trends and Collaborations: Regional Visions, Verticals and
Inter-Regional Cooperation Activities*

Governmental entities and several research bodies from different regions of the globe, are conducting studies and efforts in order to shape up 5G, accelerate its deployment, and test its potential performance in real world. In the ITU-R, the process of developing Recommendations for the terrestrial components of the IMT-2020 radio interface(s) is on-going and the final IMT-2020 specifications are expected by October 2020. In the 3GPP, 5G specific first functionalities are under standardization (Release 15) and their finalization was done in September 2018, whereas the full 5G vision (Release 16) was issued end June 2020. 5G first commercialization is planned by many countries in the coming few years. In this worldwide industry sessions, we invite leading 5G industry associations from different regions and countries to share and discuss their current activities, visions and future roadmaps towards 5G deployment, and also to develop on international industry collaboration.

Regional visions and involvement of verticals: While the 5G standards process assures ubiquity and interoperability, regional considerations may create different visions of 5G as operators analyze their spectrum portfolio, develop 5G trials, use cases with verticals, and other technological considerations surface.
Spectrum, standardization and deployments roadmap towards Full 5G vision and IMT-2020: What is the target spectrum and candidate bands and when will it be decided? What is the image of 5G first deployments (Dense urban, Rural, Stadium…). What is the roadmap for 5G deployments? And how to make 5G first deployments successful? What is the involvement of verticals in 5G standardization and developments?

International industry cooperation: What are the possible cross-continental collaborations and joint inter-regional projects toward the success of 5G?
