COVID-19

Latest update on 12-March-2020

In the evening of 12 March, we have informed all participants via email that the physical event will not be organised on 17-20 March in Levi, Finland due to reasons of public safety. The whole event will be organized virtually to ensure publication of the papers in IEEE Xplore.

We are extremely sorry for this rapid change and inconvenience for all registered participants! We do hope that, in this difficult situation, participants find the online presentations and papers useful and interesting.

We will make the material available online starting from Tuesday and will send further instructions on how to interactively participate in the virtual event.

In all practical matters, please do not hesitate to contact us via 6gsummit@oulu.fi.
