Call For Papers

Scope and Topics of Interest:

Driven by the development of mobile Internet and smart phones, data traffic grows exponentially in current mobile communication systems. Initial estimations indicate that, different from the evolutionary path of previous cellular generations that was based on spectral efficiency improvements; the most substantial amount of future system performance gains will be obtained by means of network infrastructure densification. The opportunities and challenges of the fifth-generation (5G) rapidly gain great attention from academics, industries, and governments. Ultra dense network (UDN) is a promising technique to meet the requirements of explosive data traffic in 5G mobile communications. Moreover, when overlaid on top of the macrocells, low power small cells (such as femtocell and picocell) can improve the coverage and capacity of cellular networks by exploiting spatial reuse of the spectrum. Dense small cells can also offload the wireless data traffic from macrocells, especially in indoor environments where more than 80% of the data traffic occurs.

This workshop will bring together academic and industrial researchers to identify and discuss technical challenges and recent results related to the Ultra Dense Networking techniques for 5G mobile networks. Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

  • Non-orthogonal multiple access techniques in 5G Ultra Dense Networks
