​Schedule Time

  • 5:25 p.m: Connectivity & mobile networks: Power-efficientand low electromagnetic-radiation smart solutions


Information-communication, computation and storage technologies are jointly reshaping the way we use technology to meet the future needs of a wide range of big-data and artificial-intelligence applications. They also are paving the way for a fully customized, autonomous user experience. The 5G industry is intensively working today on designing, prototyping and testing fundamental technological advances to deliver the promised performance in terms of latency, energy efficiency, wireless broadband capacity, elasticity, etc. Nevertheless, looking at the increasing requests for new services and predicting the development of new technologies in the coming decade, it is already possible to envision the need to move beyond 5G and design a new architecture incorporating new technologies to satisfy new needs at both the individual and societal levels. In this talk, special emphasis will be given to open research challenges that researchers and industry are and will investigate in the near future to provide high energy efficient and low EMF solutions.


  • Emilio joined CEA-Leti as a research engineer in 2006 after working four years at Motorola Labs. He became a Ph.D. student supervisor in 2007. From 2011 to 2020, he served first as the Smart Devices & Telecommunications European collaborative strategic programs director, and later as the Smart Devices & Telecommunications Scientific and Innovation Director.
  • Emilio has published approximately 120 papers in international conferences, journals and book chapters, and has given more than 150 international invited talks, keynotes and tutorials. He is the main inventor or co-inventor of more than 60 patents. He earned a Ph.D. degree in Engineering Science in 2005 from Telecom Paris.
  • In 2018 he directed the first 5G mobile millimeter-wave demonstration in realistic operational environments at the 2018 winter Olympic Games. Since 2018, he has held the French Research Director Habilitation (HDR), and since February 2020 has directed activities at CEA-Leti focusing on future 6G technologies.
