The goal of the 2nd workshop on Propagation Channel Models and Evaluation Methodologies for 6G is to investigate the up-to-date research on i) wireless propagation channel measurement and modeling and ii) the evaluation methodology required for future 6G application scenarios. Compared to 5G and 5G-Advanced, 6G is envisioned to support considerably larger number of services with frequency from low, middle, to higher frequency bands up to Terahertz band, wider coverage including space-air-ground-sea and more advanced technologies. The workshop will focus on two aspects. First, it will address new challenges for wireless channel modeling due to both new technologies trends and new application scenarios introduced in 6G. Second, it will address the application of these models in the evaluation of candidate technologies and solutions for 6G in the upcoming standardization activities in ITU, 3GPP, etc. The joint efforts from both academia and industry will be the key for achieving these goals.
