Professor @ University of Piraeus
Angeliki Alexiou has been involved in wireless research in industry and academia for more than 25 years, studying Information and Communication Theory fundamentals, and advanced wireless technologies design, optimization, implementation, and standardization.
She received the Diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens in 1994 and the PhD in Electrical Engineering from Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine, University of London in 2000.
In 1999 she joined Bell Laboratories, Wireless Research, Lucent Technologies, (later Alcatel-Lucent, now NOKIA), in Swindon, UK. Since 2009 she has been a professor of Broadband Communications Systems at the department of Digital Systems, Information and Communications Technology School, University of Piraeus, Greece. Professor Alexiou is a co-recipient of Bell Labs President’s Gold Award in 2002 for contributions to Bell Labs Layered Space-Time (BLAST) project and the Central Bell Labs Teamwork Award in 2004 for role model teamwork and technical achievements in the IST FITNESS project.
She is the Chair of the Working Group on Radio Communication Technologies and of the Working Group on High Frequency Radio Technologies of the Wireless World Research Forum (WWRF). She is currently leading the activities and technical contributions of WWRF to ITU-R WP5D. Her current research interests include advance technologies for 6G systems, MIMO, THz communications, Reconfigurable Intelligent Surfaces, Joint Communications and Sensing and Machine Learning for wireless systems.

In 6G perceptive systems, reconfigurability and programmability, agility and resilience, situational awareness and sensing will transform communication networks into cyber-physical connectivity infrastructures, capable of ‘sensing’ and ‘shaping’ the world.
Based on this vision, the objective of this talk is to present major 6G usage scenarios trends and, in this context, explain the role and potential of Reconfigurable Intelligent Surfaces (RIS) as a key wireless innovation that could catalyze 6G. RIS fundamentals, design principles and challenges, novel capabilities and features will be discussed and illustrated through selected wireless connectivity examples.TAGS: #6G, #PerceptiveNetworks, #IntelligentSurfaces
