Within CEA (Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy French Commission), the Laboratory for Electronics & Information Technology (CEA-LETI) works with companies in order to increase their competitiveness through technological innovation and transfers. CEA-LETI is focused on micro- and nanotechnologies and their applications, from wireless devices and systems, to biology and healthcare or photonics. Since 3G, CEA-LETI has been pioneering innovative research on future wireless systems. The ‘New-6G’ initiative leaded by CEA-LETI and the wireless broadband system laboratory are devoted to research activities and prototyping on 5G, beyond-5G, and 6G research. For the past few years, the laboratory has been particularly active in the AI field and its  implementation in the future communication systems. The lab is part of the ETSI Experiential Networked Intelligence (ENI) Industrial Standardization Group focusing on the deployment of AI in future cellular networks. It has strong expertise in cellular networks, resource management, heterogeneous networks, and optimization. The laboratory has led/taken part in many R&D French, European, and international collaborative projects and has strong links with ICT industry. CEA-LETI (and the wireless broadband system laboratory) is part of the multidisciplinary institute in artificial intelligence (MIAI), a French multidisciplinary project proposal, which has been pre-selected by the ANR to establish a local network of well-known researchers working on AI. Moreover, CEA-LETI antenna & propagation laboratory has strong experience in antenna and metasurface design, channel sounding and modelling. Its characterization platform includes three anechoic chambers, specific on probe setup for the characterization of advanced integrated antennas operating at millimetre wavelengths, channel sounders, and a channel emulator. Finally, CEA-LETI has been actively contributing for more than a decade into collaborative research programs on wireless localisation, including theoretical aspects, algorithms and localisation-enabled protocol design, system integration and field validations.
