About Conference


Following 5G’s large-scale commercial use, the global information and communication industry started its explorations in 6G. As the “super infrastructure” of the future digital world, 6G will support the multi-dimensional perception and ubiquitous intelligent connection of people, machines, and objects with its superb performance in connection, computing, intelligence, and security, to empower the digital transformation of the whole society and facilitate the fulfillment of the vision of “Intelligent Connection of Everything and Digital Twin”. At present, in the window period for the selection of 6G technologies, global communication technology powers, international organizations, and leading enterprises are actively deploying 6G research, in the hope of creating new opportunities for S&T reforms, sustainable social development, and comprehensive enhancement of human well-being.

Global 6G Conference is the most overarching international conference in the field of 6G. Its first session was held in Beijing in September 2020, and the second in March 2022. During the sessions, core members of the 15 teams of 6G special research projects under the National Key R&D Program of China of the Ministry of Science and Technology of the People’s Republic of China and more than 10 national authoritative experts had in-depth exchanges around 6G Vision and Use Cases, 6G Network Architecture, New 6G Air Interface & High-performance Wireless Transmission Technology, 6G Coverage Expansion & NTN Enhancement, and 6G Network Security and Reliable Architecture. Also, the innovative ideas and latest achievements related to 6G technology R&D were showcased in an all-around way, continuously contributing to global S&T cooperation and collaborative innovation.

The Global 6G Conference 2023 will invite the world’s top industry experts and will include technical reports, international bilateral conferences, round table forums, and other activities. Focusing on the four topics of 6G Use Cases & Standardization, 6G Network Architecture & Native Security, 6G Wireless Transmission & Spectrum Sharing, and Integrated Space-Air-Ground Network and On-demand Services, attendees will deeply explore 6G network reforms and technological innovation, cultivate globally consistent 6G concepts, enhance international cooperation in 6G, and accelerate the formation of global unified 6G standards and ecology.
