The Center for Wireless Communications (CWC) at UC San Diego will be celebrating its 25th anniversary and holding its eighth annual "5G and Beyond" Forum on November 12-13, 2020. The theme of this year’s event is "Innovating 5G - Envisioning 6G." Considering the current circumstances due to COVID-19, we will organize the Forum online. The Forum will discuss innovations and challenges in a variety of areas, including circuits, sensing, communication, and networking, as well as the role big data and AI will play in the next generations of networks and devices. The Forum will also discuss how user experiences and new applications, like connected health, smart transportation, smart manufacturing and immersive multimedia, can inform and benefit from current 5G innovations and lead to  future 6G advancements. As in our previous Forums, industry leaders and experts from different industry segments, together with experts from academia, will participate as speakers and panelists. The Forum will conclude with a planning session to decide on new research projects which will help shape wireless innovations in CWC, member companies, and beyond.
