5G: The Advances in Industry


As the novelist technology on telecommunication and networks, 5G will bring much more than just boost your speed of internet. In the fields of engineering, 5G is the foundation for more flexible and efficient activities. In the future, 5G will transform industrial works in different aspects. Specifically, the application of IoT will significantly increase the efficiency of production, and the production lines in factories can react according to the supply-demand relationship and the stock rapidly; the manipulation and operation of equipment and devices will be implemented remotely, improving safety and avoiding risks; the digital twins of the machining system will replicate the machinery, avoiding the faults of the machining in the real world; the evolved machine tools can learn from each other via logistic networks, which can work autonomously to improve the quality of products.

In this workshop, we will present new findings on the breakthrough in industry with the application of 5G, such as the application of 8K video in living broadcast, the self-learning among different CNC machines and the state-of-art technology on automatic driving. The aim of this workshop is to stimulate new conceptions and inspirations among academic areas and industries, in the age of 5G.

Paper submission

Papers should be submitted through EAI ‘Confy+‘ system, and have to comply with the Springer format (see Author’s kit section).

The workshop accepts regular papers (12-20 pages) as well as short papers (6-11 pages).

All conference papers undergo a thorough peer review process prior to the final decision and publication. This process is facilitated by experts in the Technical Program Committee during a dedicated conference period. Standard peer review is enhanced by EAI Community Review which allows EAI members to bid to review specific papers. All review assignments are ultimately decided by the responsible Technical Program Committee Members while the Technical Program Committee Chair is responsible for the final acceptance selection. You can learn more about Community Review here.
