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.

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.


The Action aims at promoting collaborative research across different fields and support the networking among researchers involved in inclusive radio communications to gather the different knowledge necessary to address the 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.

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.


COST IRACON Early Career Researchers in Finals of NI Engineering Impact Awards

  Paul Harris (Bristol, UK) and Steffen Malkowsky (Lund, Sweden), both Early Career Researchers with COST IRACON, have made it through to the finals of the National Instruments Engineering Impact Awards. It is now possible to view their application on Massive MIMO and also vote for their submission.  If you wish to VOTE, the project is […]

EurAAP 2016

In the framework of the European School of Antennas, the course “Short range radio propagation: theory, models and future applications” will be held from 26 to 30 September 2016 at the University of Bologna, Italy. The course will take place at the university campus located in Cesena, at nearly 15 km from the Adriatic Sea. […]

MCHFB Workshop

The third international workshop on mobile communications in higher frequency bands is organized in conjunction with IEEE Globecom’16. The workshop is a  great venue to present latest results from IRACON activities, and we encourage colleagues to submit contributions there; the manuscript submission deadline is July 1st. Regarding MCHFB


The management and the secretariat of the COST CA15104 Action is offered by CNIT, National Inter-University Consortium for Telecommunications.
