5G International PhD School 2019 is the second edition of the international doctorate school that CNIT has conceived as a prestigious event, with a high scientific connotation, aggregated at the 5G Italia conference.

5G International PhD School aspires to be an event in which all of us, researchers potentially interested in 5G technology, can jointly structure our training: to be able to grasp the innumerable research opportunities that the 5G, and its desired applications, can offer us.
