The 2nd International Workshop on 
5G Mobile and Wireless Communication System for 2020 and Beyond 

May 18th, 2014

in conjunction with IEEE VTC 2014 Spring, Seoul, Korea, May 18-21, 2014

Scope and Objectives:

The purpose of the workshop is to bring researchers and industry together to share their views on needs, possibilities and challenges in 5G communication systems. Participants are expected to share their views on which new technology enablers are going to be the pillars of the coming 5G mobile and wireless system. Those enablers may be components of the protocol stack (PHY, MAC or upper layers) or new architectural models.

It is widely viewed that the future mobile infrastructure will have to cope not only with a quantitative growth of the requirements that we are facing today (higher capacity, data rate, number of connected devices) but also with qualitatively new requirements (higher reliability, larger versatility, application-domain specific topologies) resulting from a broader scope of applications over 5G networks.

In 2020, mobile and wireless traffic volume is expected to increase thousand-fold over 2010 figures. Moreover, an increase in the number of wirelessly connected devices in the tens of billions will have a profound impact on society. Massive machine communication, forming the basis for the Internet of Things, will make our everyday life more efficient, comfortable and safer, through a wide range of applications including traffic safety and medical services. The variety of applications and traffic types originating from or reaching mobile, WLAN, and sensor networks, will be significantly larger than today, and will result in more diverse requirements on services, devices and networks.

To meet the demands beyond 2020, a system that broadens the use of today's wireless networks is needed. Fundamentally new concepts and design approaches are needed, and these must be integrated into systems that provide the necessary flexibility, versatility and scalability at low cost and low energy consumption. This workshop presents a forum for exchange of ideas between all stakeholders.

We invite researchers to submit original papers in the following areas:

  • D2D communication
  • Machine-type communication/massive machine communication
  • Ultra-reliable networks and NSPS communication
  • Moving networks and vehicular-to-anything communication
  • Ultra-dense deployments
  • Radio network architectures including beyond cellular
  • Self-organizing networks and distributed features
  • Energy efficient networks
  • Network and massive MIMO
  • Network coding
  • Efficient air interfaces (low signaling overhead, energy consumption)
  • Optimizing radio access
  • Interference metrics, measurements and management
  • Millimeter-wave communication
  • Spectrum measurement and models
  • Spectrum use and new spectrum sharing models
  • Cognitive radio networks
  • QoS provisioning and MAC protocol
  • Trust and security
  • Experimental prototypes and results related with the above topics

Important Dates:

  • Paper Submission : 23 February, 2014
  • Author Notification : 14 March, 2014
  • Final paper submission : 24 March, 2014

Paper Submission:

Papers should follow the 2-column IEEE conference template and not exceed 5 pages (2 additional pages are possible for an overlength fee of $100 per page due upon paper acceptance).
