The IEEE Washington Section calendar pulls content from the Washington Section’s vTools Events feed, the Northern Virginia Section’s vTools Events feed, and the Baltimore Section’s vTools Events feed, since there is significant overlap between the two sections’ members. (vTools Events is the IEEE-operated database that contains all IEEE events globally. To be useful, it requires filtering at the section level.)

Registration for events is handled by vTools. To register for an event using vTools, click the “Register Today” link at the bottom of an event description on this site.

2nd Workshop on 5G Technologies for Tactical and First Responder Networks

2019-10-07 @ 08:00 - 18:00 EDT

Co-sponsored by: IEEE Future Networks

Based on the success and feedback from the attendees of 2018 Workshop on 5G Technologies for First Responder and Tactical Networks and the importance and timeliness of this subject, JHU/APL is teaming up with IEEE Future Networks Initiative to organize this event on October 7, 2019 at JHU/APL campus in Laurel, Maryland for the second time.

Today, several standards organizations and forums, namely IEEE, 3GPP, and ITU, are working on defining the architecture and standardizing various aspects of 5G technologies. However, little has been studied to explore how 5G technologies can be useful to tactical and first responder networks. It is important to investigate how tactical and first responder communities can take advantage of 5G technologies to support massive bandwidth, massive sensing, and massive control type applications.

The 2019 workshop is scheduled to take place on Monday, October 7 at JHU/APL campus’s Kossiakoff Center in Laurel, Maryland. This year’s workshop will include plenary keynote talks, invited talks, exhibits, demos, panels and multiple parallel tracks covering mmWave, MIMO, Security, eHealth, Edge Automation, Systems Optimization, Applications, Testbed, Satellite, and Hardware. This workshop will also provide opportunities for sponsorships and exhibits. There will be ample opportunity to network with the industry professionals, researchers from R&D labs and universities, academics, government and regulators.
If you have any questions about this workshop regarding speaking, sponsorship, or exhibit opportunities, please feel free to reach out to Ashutosh Dutta at or call at 908-642-8593.
