AIT Highlights

International Workshop on Satellite Communications and their Integration in 5G networks

Via its participation in the H2020 project SANSA (, AIT has helped co-organize the 1st International Workshop on Satellite Communications - Challenges and Integration in the 5G ecosystem, which is part of this year's IEEE International Conference on Communications (IEEE ICC' 17) and will take place in Paris on May 25, 2017.

The goal of this workshop is to discuss the challenges and suggest solutions for the accelerated integration of Satellite Communication(Satcom) in the 5G networks landscape. The workshop builds on some ongoing efforts on the synergy of Satellite and Terrestrial Communications explored in the European research ecosystem, such as in H2020 projects VITAL ( and SANSA (, which support it. It is an international event that includes contributions from diverse geographic regions, aiming at strengthening the exchange of ideas among its participants, reinforcing liaisons among industrial and academic players, improving focus of innovation and aligning towards common goals and milestones. The workshop will consist of two sessions, one focusing on satellite communications and technologies and one on networking for 5G / Satcom services and integration in the 5G ecosystem. Besides the accepted technical papers, the workshop will also feature an invited talk by Simon Watts, Senior Associate of Avanti Communications, on the standardization process for satellite integration into 5G networks.

AIT will be represented by Prof. C. B. Papadias, who is a co-organizer of the workshop, as well as Workshops Program Co-Chair of IEEE ICC' 17.
