On Tuesday August 29th, 2017, a panel was organized in University of Bologna, Politecnico, in the framework of the ISWCS Symposium. ISWCS is an event sponsored by IEEE and Desio and the one in Bologna was the 14th edition of this series of Symposia, dedicated to “wireless communications systems”. 5G MoNArch was invited to organize a panel dedicated to “network slicing” for 5G systems, with a specific focus on how to include vertical stakeholders in the network slicing implementation. The panellists were Mauro Boldi (5G MoNArch Dissemination WP leader, and moderator of the panel), Enrico Buracchini from TIM, Chen Tao from VTT, Markus Breitbach from DT and Omer Bulakci from Huawei GRC. The opportunity was also to share the views of some Phase 1 5GPPP projects such as 5G Norma, METIS-II and Coherent and also to check the status of the activities about network slicing in the 5G Architecture Working Group, in which Dr. Bulakci is vice-chairman. The audience was of about 70 people from researchers and industrial delegates and appreciated the panel asking several questions to the speakers during the Q&A final session.
