Reconfigurable intelligent surfaces (RIS) have fast emerged as a beyond 5G candidate technology. RIS correspond to smart radio surfaces with many small antennas or reflecting metamaterial elements that receive and relay electromagnetic (EM) waves with the capability of controlling the phase-shifts. The distinctive characteristics of RIS in terms of reconfiguration of the propagation environment has motivated a host of potential new use cases. These include utilising RIS as repeaters to enhance performance of field deployments and for implementing low-complexity multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radios.
This workshop, jointly hosted by ARIADNE, 6G-RISE, and AIMM project consortiums, intends to bring academic and industrial researchers together to stimulate and shape further development of RIS technology towards incorporation onto B5G/6G cellular standards, and eventually commercialisation.
