Special Session #3Recent Advances on 5G Cellular Networks

Introduction

The fifth-generation (5G) of cellular networks is coming and it promises to open the door to life-changing innovations. In December 2017, 3GPP officially ratified the first implementable 5G New Radio (NR) specification. This paved the way for accelerated trials and then full-scale deployments of 5G systems all around the world. In addition to the evolution of existing technologies, many new radio concepts are designed to deliver new levels of performance and efficienty that will enable the wide range of 5G services. This special session aims to disseminate high-quality original research results regarding not only the theoretical development but also the practical implementation of these advanced wireless technologies. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Massive MIMO and cell-free massive MIMO
  • Full-duplex communications
  • Millimeter-wave (mmWave) communications
  • Device-to-device (D2D) communications
  • Ultra-dense cellular networks
  • Distributed caching in wireless communications
  • Radio resource and interference management techniques
  • Green communication, energy efficiency, energy harvesting
  • Simulation platforms, prototypes, test-beds and field trial for 5G technologies
  • Standardizations of 5G

 

Important Dates

  • Manuscript submission: May 30, 2018
  • Notification of acceptance: July 30, 2018
  • Camera-ready submission: August 15, 2018
