During the last years communications researchers have made great progress in all aspects of communications. Breakthroughs in optical communications, enhancements of the Internet architecture and novel data exploitation technologies, have enabled the high-capacity converged networks supporting highly diverse services. These advances have caused profound changes in the life of human beings worldwide. The perspectives for the future are of even more disruptive changes improving the quality of life our society. As we are approaching the end of this decade, the fifth generation mobile network (5G) technology, providing mobile communication services of unprecedented quality, is on the path to become a commercial reality. This recent progress towards 5G has been enabled by a clear focus of research organizations, governmental research programs and the communications industry at large on this target. This is the critical time when researchers are starting to think about the next big steps in communications. How will people and machines communicate in the future? What kind of new communication services and data usage will impact our lives towards the end of the next decade? What will be the directions and challenges in communications and networking after 5G? What disruptive transmission technologies, network architectures, management and control schemes will allow us to take communications yet another step further?
