Abstract: The power of 5G is unleashed and amplified as the 5G networks are rolling out globally nowadays. At the gate of the large scale commercial deployment of 5G, academic researchers and industrial partners are all looking into solutions that can further improve and optimize the performance for not only the capacity-driven eMBB (enhanced mobile broadband) services such as high definition videos, AR/VRs, but also the rapidly-emerging URLLC (ultra-reliable and low latency communication) and mMTC (massive machine type communications) services from all kinds of vertical applications. This workshop serves as a good opportunity for attendees from both academia and industry to exchange views on advanced 5G radio access technologies towards future 5G evolution openly.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • TDD massive MIMO on both low and high frequency bands
  • FDD massive MIMO on lower frequency bands
  • Super high-capacity uplink to serve high-definition video sharing/surveillance outdoor or indoor
  • Coordinated use of low-frequency and high frequency bands
  • Dynamic spectrum sharing within/among operators
  • User centric no cell experience (UCNC) with base station and/or user cooperation
  • Network assisted user cooperation for better performance in capacity, coverage, reliability, power, etc.
  • Uplink coverage enhancement for medium to high data rate
  • Coverage enhancement of both downlink and uplink, especially for high frequency
  • XR (AR/VR) QoS guarantee and evaluation methodology
  • Design and analysis of deterministic-delay networks in industrial applications
  • Low power-consumption operations in radio access network
  • Mixed massive connectivity of various types of mMTC devices with heterogeneous rate and latency requirements
  • Large capacity URLLC transmission and networking
  • Artificial Intelligence for advanced air interface design
  • High accuracy wireless positioning and navigation

  Bio: Dr. Peiying Zhu (Chair) is a Huawei Fellow and IEEE Fellow. She is currently leading 5G wireless system research in Huawei. The focus of her research is advanced wireless access technologies with more than 200 granted patents. She has been regularly giving talks and panel discussions on 5G vision and enabling technologies. She served as the guest editor for IEEE Signal processing magazine special issue on the 5G revolution and IEEE JSAC on Deployment Issues and Performance Challenges for 5G. She co-chaired various 5G workshops in IEEE GLOBECOM. She is actively involved in 3GPP and IEEE 802 standards development. She is currently a WiFi Alliance Board member.
Prior to joining Huawei in 2009, Peiying was a Nortel Fellow and Director of Advanced Wireless Access Technology in the Nortel Wireless Technology Lab. She led the team and pioneered research and prototyping on MIMO-OFDM and Multi-hop relay. Many of these technologies developed by the team have been adopted into LTE standards and 4G products.
Peiying Zhu received the Master of Science degree and Doctorate Degree from Southeast University and Concordia University in 1985 and 1993, respectively.

Bio: Dr. Halim Yanikomeroglu is a Professor at Carleton University, Canada. His research covers many aspects of communications technologies with emphasis on wireless networks. His research group made contributions to 4G and 5G technologies; he has had extensive collaboration with industry which resulted in 27 granted patents. During 2012-2016, he led one of the largest academic-industrial collaborative research projects on pre-standards 5G wireless, sponsored by the Ontario Government and the industry. Dr. Yanikomeroglu has been one of the most frequent tutorial presenters in the leading international IEEE conferences on wireless technologies (31 times). He served as the General Chair (VTC-2017 Toronto, VTC-2010 Ottawa) and Technical Program Chair (WCNC 2014 Istanbul, WCNC 2008 Las Vegas, WCNC 2004 Atlanta) of several major international IEEE conferences. He was the Chair of the IEEE ComSoc Technical Committee of Personal Communications. He is currently serving as the Chair of the Steering Board of the IEEE’s flagship wireless conference, WCNC (Wireless Communications and Networking Conference). He is a Fellow of IEEE, a Fellow of the Engineering Institute of Canada (EIC), a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Engineering (CAE), a Distinguished Speaker for the IEEE Communications Society and the IEEE Vehicular Technology Society. He received several awards for his research, teaching, and service.

Bio: Dr. Ivo Maljević is a principal technology architect within TELUS’ technology strategy team, where he focuses on defining a long-term vision for radio access network (RAN) evolution, radio performance characterization and modeling, radio spectrum strategy and technology standardization. His current experience includes 10 years of work with TELUS. Additionally, Ivo is an adjunct professor at the University of Toronto. Prior to TELUS, he was with Soma Networks, and before that, he worked at Motorola Canada. He received the B.S. degree from the University of Podgorica in 1991, the M.S. degree from the University of Belgrade in 1995, and the Ph.D. degree from the University of Toronto, Canada, in 2004, all in electrical engineering.
