COST Action CA15104

The Inclusive Radio Communications (IRACON) concept defines those technologies aimed to support wireless connectivity at any rates,
for any communicating units, and in any type of scenarios.

Start date: 22/03/2016 – End date: 21/03/2020

Action's goals


This Action aims to achieve scientific breakthroughs by introducing novel design and analysis methods for the 5th-generation (5G) and beyond-5G radio communication networks.


One of the goals is to make available several platforms on specific topics that will allow testing new solutions in real conditions.


IRACON supports the COST policies on promoting gender balance, enabling Early Career Investigators (ECI) and broadening geographical inclusiveness. In addition, the  Action aims at promoting collaborative research across different fields and support the networking among researchers involved in radio communications to gather the different knowledge necessary to address the inclusive complexity of the 5G-and-beyond challenges.


The Action also aims at training young researchers in the field of inclusive radio communications, via annual training schools and short term missions.

Working Groups


Disciplinary Working Groups

Sub-Working Groups


The Action will produce:

  • The list of TDs presented during each CA15104 Meeting, including the abstract
  • Temporary Documents (TDs) available to members only
  • White Papers, made available through the public website
  • Proceedings of workshops
  • Material for training schools

and the most relevant outcome: it will connect hundreds of researchers sharing an interest towards B5G networks.
