On Tuesday August 29th, 2017, a panel was organized at the University of Bologna, Politecnico, in the framework of the 14th edition of the ISWCS. ISWCS is a symposium sponsored by IEEE and Desio, and this 14th edition was dedicated to “wireless communications systems”. 5G MoNArch was invited to organize a panel on “network slicing” for 5G systems, with a specific focus on how to include vertical stakeholders into the network slicing implementation. The panellists were Mauro Boldi (Telecom Italia, 5G MoNArch Dissemination WP leader and moderator of the panel), Enrico Buracchini from Telecom Italia, Chen Tao from VTT, Markus Breitbach from Deutsche Telekom and Omer Bulakci from Huawei GRC. The goal of the panel was also to share the views and insights of 5G-PPP Phase 1 projects such as 5G NORMA, METIS-II and Coherent, and furthermore to check the status of the activities about network slicing in the 5G-PPP Architecture Working Group, where Dr. Bulakci acts as 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.
