VTC2013-Spring Workshops provide invaluable opportunities for researchers and industry practitioners to share their state-of-the-art research and development results on specific areas or challenging topics. VTC attendees will be able to attend a workshop for a nominal additional fee. Registration packages for individual workshops without VTC will also be available.

Workshop Overview


W2: 3rd International Workshop on Self-Organizing Networks (IWSON)

Download the PDF Call for Papers

In recent years, there has been an increasing interest in the Self-Organizing Network (SON) paradigm applied to wireless communications networks. Approaching the challenges in radio network SON is a focus area in both industry and academia research. Currently, we note rising interest in field experience from early LTE SON deployments, SON coordination approaches and techniques, SON features tailored to the needs of multi-radio access technology and multi-layer networks (heterogeneous network, HetNet), SON in multi-vendor networks, and SON for future radio access technologies beyond LTE and LTE-Advanced.

W3: Mobile and Wireless Communication Systems for 2020 and beyond

The purpose of the workshop is to gather researchers and industry to share views on needs, possibilities and challenges in next generation global mobile and wireless communication systems.
It is widely accepted that the future mobile infrastructure will have to cope not only with a quantitative growth of the requirements with 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 application domains to be supported.
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 to counts 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 a low cost and low energy dissipation. This workshop presents a forum for exchange of ideas between all stakeholders.
