6G: Software Defined Radio and RF Sampling

Brought to you by University of Bristol (Communication Systems & Networks Research Group)

This University of Strathclyde led workshop, supported by DCMS and UK SPF, will focus on software defined radio architectures and algorithms and physical layer implementation.

About the event

CW is delighted to support this series of events. This is the third workshop in the series.

This University of Strathclyde led workshop, supported by DCMS and UK SPF, will focus on software defined radio architectures and algorithms and physical layer implementation.

More information to follow.

Workshop lead: 
Professor Robert Stewart, Electronic and Electrical Engineering, University of Strathclyde 

Professor Robert Stewart is currently the MathWorks Professor of Signal Processing at the University of Strathclyde. Since August 2014 Robert has been Chair and Head of the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, with more than 55 academic staff and almost 300 researchers. His interests in teaching, knowledge exchange and research over the last 20 years has focussed around signal processing and communications.  In recent years the Professor has been working on digital communications and software defined radio, with specific interest in radio standards such as LTE, 802.11, and most recently on wireless white space radio utilising TV spectrum frequencies.  From 2006-2012 Robert was the Xilinx Professor of DSP and Digital Logic at Strathclyde, and from since 1997 he has been a visiting Professor at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) Extension School.  In 2004 he was a founder of the technology company Steepest Ascent Ltd, based in Glasgow with an office in Los Angeles.  The company was acquired by MathWorks in 2013 who now have an engineering development office in Glasgow near to the University.


The first session in the series will take place on the 26th May. This University of Bristol led workshop, supported by DCMS and UK SPF, will focus on physical layer hardware technologies and architectures as well as new materials to enhance both spectrum and energy efficient of next generation networks.

The second session in the series will take place on the 1st July 2021. This University of Surrey led workshop, supported by DCMS and UK SPF, will focus on energy efficiency, spectrum efficiency and coverage.


The UK Spectrum Policy Forum (SPF) and DCMS are supporting a series of University-run workshops to showcase the current research projects having the best potential to address 6G wireless research priorities. Bristol, Surrey and Strathclyde have been selected to run the workshops but the intention is for these workshops to be a platform for all UK universities having relevant wireless research. Each hosting University has been entrusted by the SPF and DCMS to identify outstanding research projects from other Universities to showcase at their workshops. The output from this series of workshops will be a White Paper for the UK SPF to present to government that validates the research projects as relevant to UK 6G research priorities, identifies gaps, suggests opportunities for collaboration, looks at the adequacy of research funding streams and flag potential implications for 6G spectrum policy.

This event will be recorded. By registering you consent with your name, job title and organisation being included on the delegate list. The agenda is subject to change without notice.
