PhD School

The international scientific event companion to 5G Italy

5G International PhD School 2020 is the third 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.


During 5G International PhD School you will participate exclusively in 3 days of tutorial lessons offered by professors of international character on the research topics at the 5G hinge:

  • Architecture,
  • Applications to automation,
  • Applications to Big Data,
  • Applications to bioengineering,
  • Field Trials,
  • Fund Raising,
  • MAC Layer,
  • Physical Layer,
  • Privacy and GDPR issues,
  • Quality expectations,
  • Simulations,
  • Sustainability.
