Prof. Fumiyuki Adachi

Title: Wireless Challenge for Beyond 5G


Fumiyuki Adachi received the B.S. and Dr. Eng. degrees in electrical engineering from Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan, in 1973 and 1984, respectively. In April 1973, he joined the Electrical Communications Laboratories of Nippon Telegraph & Telephone Corporation (now NTT) and conducted research on digital cellular mobile communications. From July 1992 to December 1999, he was with NTT DOCOMO, where he led a research group on wideband/broadband wireless access for 3G and beyond. He contributed to the development of 3G air interface standard, known as W-CDMA. Since January 2000, he has been with Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan. He was a full professor at the Dept. of Communications Engineering of the Graduate School of Engineering until he retired from the university in March 2016.

Currently, he is a Specially Appointed Professor for Research at the Research Organization of Electrical Communication (ROEC), Tohoku University, and is leading a wireless signal processing research group aiming at beyond 5G systems. His research interests are in the area of wireless signal processing and networking, including multi-access, equalization, antenna diversity, adaptive transmission, channel coding, radio resource management, etc.

Dr. Adachi is an IEEE Life Fellow and an IEICE Fellow. He is a recipient of the IEEE Vehicular Technology Transactions Best Paper of the Year Award 1980 and 1990, the IEICE Transactions Best Paper of the Year Award 1996, 1998 and again 2009, IEEE VTS Avant Garde award 2000, IEICE Achievement Award 2002, IEEE VTS Conference Chair Award 2014, IEEE VTS Stuart Meyer Memorial Award 2017, and IEEE ComSoc RCC Technical Recognition Award 2017.
