Radio Communications have become one of the pillars on which our Society relies for performing many daily tasks. Today, the number of connected devices is increasing exponentially, reflecting not only enthusiastic smartphone adoption but also increasing connectivity of machines, sensors, vehicles and other devices for health and smart environments.

The Inclusive Radio Communications concept defines those technologies aimed to support wireless connectivity at any rates, for any communicating units, and in any type of scenarios. The Wireless Internet of Things beyond 2020 requires revolutionary approaches in Radio Access technologies, networks and systems. Over its four years of existence, COST Action CA15104 (IRACON) has achieved scientific breakthroughs by introducing novel design and analysis methods for the 5th-generation (5G) and beyond-5G radio communication networks. Results have spanned the whole gamut from radio channel modeling, in particular in the millimeter-wave range to signal processing for massive MIMO and C-RAN, innovative network architectures and protocols and finally experimental research addressing Over-the-Air testing, the Internet of Things, localization and tracking and new radio access technologies.

The IRACON Final Workshop will bring together several international experts to discuss new emerging challenges in the scientific  areas covered by the Action, as well as new research topics raised by a number of Vertical applications, in particular Health, Mobility, Industrial Automation and Smart Environments
