IEEE BTS Young Professionals (YP) program was created to help students transition to young professionals within the Broadcast Technology Society IEEE community. The 2018 IEEE BTS YP Workshop focuses on a program of lectures, given by experts in the area of broadcasting and 5G networks. The objective of this Workshop is to teach the main notions of emerging 5G technology from the broadcasting perspective. Students will have the opportunity to participate in a stimulating forum of scientists, to present their own work, to obtain feedbacks and to start up collaborations. Lectures will provide background on 5G wireless communication concepts and particular emphasis will be placed on broadcast and multicast convergence in 5G network. The Workshop is tailored towards Researchers, PhD, Masters, and Bachelor Students active or interested in future broadcasting networks. The event is organized in collaboration with IEEE BTS-Italy Chapter.
