5G Networks

First International Workshop on "Signal processing and radio resource allocation for decentralized and self-organized 5G networks"

(Co-located with the Sixth International Conference on Innovative Computing Technology (FGCT 2017)
Dublin, Ireland
August  21-23, 2017
(Technically Co-sponsored by IEEE, UK & RI)

The number of wireless connections is growing exponentially around the globe. It is expected that up to 50 billion devices will be connected to the net by 2050. Most of these connections will involve wireless technologies. However, with current wireless standards, it will be impossible to cope with this increase in traffic demand and different quality of service requirements. In addition, the signaling load needed for resource allocation and device coordination in such massive deployment will become prohibitively large. 5G wireless access networks will need to combine several innovative aspects of decentralized and centralized allocation looking for maximizing performance and minimizing signaling load.

Spectrum resources need to be dynamically shared using advanced cognitive radios and self-organization that will enable the maximum exploitation of opportunities with minimized interference and maximum quality of service satisfaction. Centralized architectures with cloud computing, context-aware, and big data processing will enable large and dense network deployments with high interference rejection, embedded security, and energy savings. Signal processing will be of paramount importance in future 5G networks to make efficient use of resources, resolve conflicts, reduce signaling load, improve the transfer of information, improve security, make efficient use of energy consumption, reject interference, and enable efficient detection of spectrum opportunities.
