Holograms, digital twins, and edge computing: ITU Journal shares new research

By ITU News

The latest issue of the ITU Journal on Future and Evolving Technologies features 34 new papers on innovations that are boosting network intelligence and creating immersive communication experiences.

The ITU Journal – free of charge to both readers and contributors – offers comprehensive coverage of communications and networking paradigms. The online journal welcomes research submissions on all relevant topics, all year long.

The latest issue gathers papers that were published throughout 2022, on topics ranging from holographic communications, digital twins, and edge computing to the growing research challenges in wireless communications associated with extended reality.

It also includes papers on artificial intelligence​ and machine learning solutions for 5G and future networks, as well as ​on the emerging trends and applications expected to shape future communication networks.

The last issue of the ITU Journal, published in July, contained seven papers on vehicular network innovations to support smart and safe mobility.

Upcoming issues are set to address the digital continuum and next-generation networks, networking beyond 2030, and autonomous network management and control for time-critical applications of 6G technologies, followed by issues on intelligent surfaces and on innovative network solutions for future services.

Three future ITU Journal issues are currently open for submissions:

Opportunities for research communities

Along with research articles, the online publication includes recorded webinar discussions on future and evolving technologies. Upcoming talks in the second ITU Journal webinar series will look what the metaverse could mean for healthcare, wireless communications above 100 gigahertz, network-edge machine learning, and universal decoding.

Two more key avenues for academics or researchers to engage in ITU’s work can be found through ITU Academia membership and ITU Kaleidoscope conferences.

Academia members can contribute to the ITU expert groups responsible for radiocommunication, standardization, and development, strengthening ITU’s work as well as boosting the impact of their own research.

Annual Kaleidoscope conferences highlight research into key strategic topics for ITU standardization processes. The 2022 edition of the conference will feature expert insights on the innovation required to make the metaverse a reality. The call for video demos is still open, with submissions of extended abstracts allowed until the end of October.
