Speech Title: On the Road to Pareto-Optimal Joint Sensing and Communication: Would this Become the 6G Killer Application?

Thanks to the spectacular advances in signal processing and nano-technology, five wireless generations have been conceived over the past five decades. Whilst the 5G systems are being rolled out, the momentum of developing the 6G systems is growing and there is an ongoing debate as to what the next ’killer-application’ is likely to be - could it be joint communications and sensing? Based on the recent treatise entitled “Joint Radar and Communication Design: Applications, State-of-the-Art, and the Road Ahead” TCOM, by Fan Liu, Christos Masouros, Athina P. Petropulu, Hugh Griffiths anad Lajos Hanzo this overview will highlight some of the associated design options and challenges, complemented by potential application scenarios. A range of other design aspect will also be discussed.

Bio: Professor Lajos Hanzo is from University of Southampton in UK. He is a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering, FIEEE, FIET, Fellow of EURASIP and a Foreign Member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. He was bestowed upon the IEEE Eric Sumner Technical Field Award.
He received his Master degree and Doctorate in 1976 and 1983, respectively from the Technical University (TU) of Budapest. He was also awarded the Doctor of Sciences (DSc) degree by the University of Southampton (2004) and Honorary Doctorates by the TU of Budapest (2009) and by the University of Edinburgh (2015).
He is a former Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Press. He has served several terms as Governor of both IEEE ComSoc and of VTS.
He has published 2000+ contributions at IEEE Xplore, 19 Wiley-IEEE Press books and has helped the fast-track career of 123 PhD students. Over 40 of them are Professors at various stages of their careers in academia and many of them are leading scientists in the wireless industry.
