The current and future generations of wireless networks, 5G and beyond, will have profound technological and economic impacts on our society. These wireless technologies are expected to radically reshape many existing applications and create numerous new opportunities. There are yet countless challenges lying ahead, many of which are happening at the “Physical Layer”, due to several fundamental limitations imposed by the nature of electromagnetics or device physics and practical constraints from economics, engineering, technologies, and application considerations. Consequently, significant research is required to bring 5G communications to reality. The IEEE IMC-5G 2020 conference provides a focused forum to bring together researchers and practitioners from different backgrounds to share the most recent advances in hardware and system technologies for 5G and beyond.

IMC-5G 2020 will take place in the Suzhou, China. It features a two-day archival series of oral and poster presentations with invited talks and tutorials. An industrial exhibit featuring a selection of state-of-the-art wireless and microwave products, measurement instruments and CAD software tools will also be held. The participation of young researchers and postgraduate students is strongly encouraged.
