3rd International Workshop on Non-Orthogonal Multiple Access Techniques for 5G

3rd International Workshop on Non-Orthogonal Multiple Access Techniques for 5G

Workshop Goal

The 3rd International Workshop on Non-Orthogonal Multiple Access Techniques for 5G will take place during IEEE ICC2017 in Kansas City, on May 20, 2018. The workshop will provide a forum for brainstorming on the emerging non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) techniques for 5G cellular networks. We aim to bring together the leading researchers in the field, both from academia and industry, to share their recent findings and their views on what access methods best suit the diverse requirements of next generation networks.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • NOMA via the power domain

    • Advanced coding and modulation for NOMA

    • MIMO techniques for NOMA

    • Multi-cell/massive MIMO NOMA

    • Security concerns for NOMA

    • Cross-layer design and optimization of NOMA
