The IEEE International Workshop on 5G & Beyond - Enabling Technologies and Applications will be held in San Francisco, CA, USA on April 11, 2016, in conjuction with IEEE INFOCOM 2016.
As the dust around 4G begins to settle, attention is now turning towards future 5G and beyond technologies. The provisioning of higher end-user data rates over the Internet has been the key driving force for the development and evolution of 4G wireless technologies. However, the drivers for 5G and beyond are likely to be much more diverse. First, enhanced mobile broadband with its corresponding demand for higher data rates will continue to be the quest. Further, new traffic types and data services are emerging, notably machine-to-machine communications to support concepts such as the smart homes and cities. In addition, future 5G and beyond networks should be much more energy-efficient than current 4G networks. The race is currently on to design the 5G wireless communication networks, system architectures, technologies and applications that bring the big data to the world beyond 2020.
The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum where diverse group of researchers can share the latest research insights, present key and emerging results on 5G and beyond enabling technologies and applications, and identify new challenges and opportunities.
