The ARIADNE project has just published its White Paper entitled “On communication-theoretic models for programmable wireless environments enabled by reconfigurable intelligent surfaces”.

With the current deployment of the fifth generation (5G) of communication systems, it is now a critical time to identify enabling technologies for the sixth generation (6G) of communication systems. 6G systems are expected to fulfill more stringent requirements than 5G systems, on transmission capacity, reliability, latency, coverage, energy consumption, and connection density.
