AIMS AND TOPICS

The last decades brought an exponential increase in needs of internet access and traffic volume. This will continue with predictions on traffic growth by about a 1000-fold increase by 2020. Hence, wireless communication networks and mobile user behavior are permanently evolving. In the current revolution of the Internet and 5G networks, people and smart objects live connected in smart environments. With the emergence of new applications and the development of communication scenarios wireless connectivity will be required anywhere and at any time. Furthermore, most of the devices requiring wireless access are becoming more and more subject to constraints in latency or power consumption. New communication scenarios exploiting proximity of wireless devices and context awareness are gaining increasing attention. Typical examples of new scenarios are device-to-device communication and computation offloading to near devices. In these contexts, new challenges occur for defining more efficient, higher speed and low cost radio technologies, architectures, and mechanisms for Broadband Wireless Access (BWA).

The 10th BWA full day workshop will build upon the success of the previous editions of this workshop. The workshop will provide an opportunity for discussing and exchanging information about novel propositions, research results, and practical experiences in the BWA domain. This full day workshop will cover a broad range of topics including, but not limited to, those listed below:

         Novel application and communication scenarios for BWA

o    Novel models for traffic, mobility, signal propagation and multi-storied dwelling

o    Context / application-aware communication

o    New scenarios and approaches for wireless communication

 

         Novel physical layer transmission and reception techniques

o    New waveforms

o    Non-orthogonal (and quasi-orthogonal) multiple access schemes

o    PHY concepts facilitating machine-type comm. (MTC) and direct device-to-device (D2D)

 

         Novel MAC design for BWA

o    Flexible and programmable MAC design

o    Collaborative / cooperative MAC schemes

o    MAC for user / control plane split in BWA

o    MAC for centralized / decentralized communication schemes (e.g. Cloud RAN)

 

         Further evolution of multi-antenna and cooperative communications

o    Massive MIMO communications

o    Interference alignment techniques

o    Full-duplex radio

 

         Management of dense, heterogeneous and complex networks

o    Novel interference and mobility management concepts

o    Interference and mobility management in the context of MTC or D2D communication

o    Integration of cloud-services into green heterogeneous wireless networks

o    Service and energy management aspects of cloud-based heterogeneous mobile networks

 

         Novel forms of spectrum access and usage

o    Cognitive and Dynamic Spectrum Management Techniques

o    Usage of mm-Wave for backhaul and access links

o    Energy efficiency vs. QoS vs. cost-efficiency trade-offs

o    Resource allocation techniques; interference analysis, avoidance, and mitigatin for geterogeneous networks

 

         Novel BWA architecture concepts

o    Architecture proposals for beyond 4G networks

o    Novel RAN architecture concepts

o    Cross-layer optimization techniques and E2E and network-based QoS/QoE management

o    Cellular network congestion management schemes

 

         Pragmatic assessment and experimental evaluation of BWA concepts

o    Lab-/field trial results and their comparison to simulation and stochastic geometry based analysis

o    Economical assessment of BWA concepts
