WS9 – Novel Antenna Designs and Manufacturing Challenges for 6G CommunIcations: The Role of Materials


This workshop aims at addressing several topics involved in the optimal design and manufacturing of novel antennas for future 6G systems, especially those targeting future GHz and THz bands. Special focus on advanced manufacturing techniques, novel materials, artificial materials and smart antennas will be given in this workshop.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Advances in Additive Manufacturing/3D Printing
  • Novel Materials and Metamaterial Structures
  • Intelligent Surfaces to Tailor Radio Propagation
  • Artificial materials
  • Metasurfaces
  • Smart lenses
  • Antenna and Beamforming Technology for 6G
  • Antenna Systems for Wireless Power Transmission and Harvesting
  • Advanced antennas for IoT applications
  • Wearable antennas
  • Sub mm-wave and THz antennas for 6G
  • Dielectric characterization of antenna materials at GHz and THz bands
  • Flexible materials for body-centric antennas
  • Methodologies for dielectric characterization of materials at GHz and THz bands
  • Passive/active/adaptive/flexible antennas
  • Propagation analysis for 6G antenna systems
  • Applications
