W4: Second International Workshop on Advances in Industrial Networks and Intelligent Systems (AINIS 2016)

Organized by Prof. Lei Shu, Guangdong University of Petrochemical Technology, China

Abstract: With the development of wireless communication technologies, e.g., wireless sensor networks, wireless mesh networks, large scale industrial plants slowly get the opportunities to adapt their advantages. Traditional industrial fieldbus can be replaced by wireless networks, which give more flexibility with lower cost and risk of single point of failure. Thousands of industrial equipment can also be monitored by using wireless sensors to detect their health status and even diagnose the type/location of fault based on extracted features. We see a huge potential of applying wireless technologies and artificial intelligences to make the existing large scale industrial plants smarter. We also see a huge amount of effort should be made to realize this beautiful computing vision.

W6: FANTASTIC-5G International Workshop on 5G New Air Interface

Organized by Frank Schaich (ALCATEL-LUCENT, Germany), Berna Sayrac (ORANGE, France), Martin Schubert (HUAWEI, Germany), Gerhard Wunder (Fraunhofer HHI, Germany), Hao Lin (ORANGE, France), Klaus Pederson (Nokia Networks, Denmark) and Musbah Shaat (CTTC, Spain)

Abstract: The next generation (5G) cellular technology is expected to arrive in 2020. There are four trends indicating the need for a new generation of cellular technology including new air interface:

  • The demand for wireless data is predicted to increase significantly, resulting in 1000x higher mobile data volumes and 10-100x higher end user data rates.
  • The number of connected devices is predicted to increase by a factor of 10-100, which means that up to 300,000 devices need to be served per access point.
  • Wireless connectivity will be applied to new use cases that require very reliable connections and mission-critical communication, such as vehicle-to-vehicle coordination, critical control of the power grid, etc.
  • Remote presence and tactile Internet that impose stringent latency constraints on the overall connection, including the wireless part of it. Forecasts imply that the latency should be decreased for a factor of 5 in order to enable such services.

The air interfaces for 2G, 3G, and 4G were all designed for specific use cases (limited only to voice and data communications) with a certain number of limited KPIs in mind (throughput, capacity, dropped/blocked call rates, etc.). However, as outlined above, 5G requires the support of a much broader class of services and consequently a very diverse family of devices and traffic characteristics. The scope of the workshop is to contribute to the design of a new 5G air interface taking specifically the above application constraints into account. An important subject of the workshop is the feasibility of a single golden air interface able to support these requirements in a highly flexible manner.

Topics

  • New Air Interface solutions on PHY/MAC layer with respect to:

  • Unified frame structure concepts
  • Gigabit wireless connectivity
  • Enabling scalable MTC for massive machine-type traffic
  • Ensuring reliability in mission-critical communication and V2V coordination
  • Transmission with very low delay
  • Advanced waveform design such as UFMC, FBMC or any other competing approach including MIMO
  • Advanced signal processing solutions such as compressed sensing for scalable MTC
  • Low-complex massive MIMO solutions (TDD/FDD, pilot contamination, antenna correlations etc)
  • Control signaling architecture for support of small cell architecture
  • Interference management and co-channel interference mitigation
  • Control signaling architecture for support of heterogeneous networks
  • Advances in synchronization and channel estimation & equalization for multicarrier waveforms and wideband single-carrier transmission

W9: International Workshop on Emerging Technology on Massive MIMO System (E-MIMO 2016)

Organized by Dr. Yingmin Wang (China Academy of Telecommunications Technology, China), Prof. David J. Love, (Purdue University, USA) and Dr. Runhua Chen (China Academy of Telecommunications Technology)

Abstract: The exponential growth of mobile broadband communication is expected to result in a spectral efficiency requirement in the range of hundreds of bits per second in future 5G wireless systems. To meet such high data rate requirement, massive MIMO with a very large number of active antennas is expected to play a critical role. As opposed to traditional passive MIMO system where antenna components are arranged as a 1-D array that can only steer the beam direction in the horizontal domain, massive MIMO arrays are often designed as a 2-D planar array, which can flexibly adjust the beam waveform and steering angles in both horizontal and vertical domains. This extra degree of beam steering capability, together with increased array gain, opens a new horizon for advanced beamforming technologies in future 5G systems. For future 5G scenarios with data bandwidth of several GHz and carrier frequency in the range of millimeter wave range, massive MIMO system is expected to be even more promising due to the reduced wavelength and antenna array size. It is widely acknowledged that massive MIMO will be an essential driver for satisfying the spectral efficiency requirement of future 5G communication systems, especially in the 6 – 100GHz spectrum. The performance potential of massive MIMO, however, comes at the expense of increased system design challenges including reference signal, channel quantization and feedback, power consumption, as well as hardware complexity. To address these challenges, the goal of this workshop is to bring together leading researchers in both academia and industry to share their views on these issues, discuss recent progress in both theoretical and implementation aspects, and identify promising concepts and technologies that enable successful rollout of massive MIMO as a path toward the future 5G society.
