The 5G Standard

Breakfast talks for newcomers

Oct 03, 2022

Attendees at the 3GPP Plenaries in June 2022 had the opportunity to attend the ‘3GPP Newcomer Orientation Session’, held on the Tuesday morning of TSGs#96 meetings, in Budapest.

The agenda for the session was based around a series of introductory presentations by the three TSG chairs and was followed by Q&A, which led to a variety of topical discussions about the return to physical meetings, the role of the various working groups, the functions of the chairs and vice-chairs.

Future newcomer sessions?

Only delegates to the Plenaries could register and attend, with some places available for remote participation (via go to meeting) for registered meeting participants - attending remotely - only, not external persons on that occasion.

The next planned face-to-face TSG meetings are scheduled for March 20-24, 2023 (Rotterdam). If time allows, the ‘3GPP Newcomer Orientation Session’ will again be held - for the benefit of newcomers to the project.
