Workshop 1 – Fog computing and caching for the Future networks

To satisfy the explosively increasing demands of high-speed data applications and massive access requirements of various mobile devices, a whole package of performance requirements has been proposed for the fifth-generation (5G) mobile communication system. In particular, 5G should be able to connect one million connections per square kilometer, and the system capacity will grow by a factor of 1000 compared to the fourth-generation (4G) system to deliver a consistent experience across a variety of scenarios.

Cloud Computing is a new paradigm in Information Technology (IT) and IT-enabled services (ITES) that transforms “computing as a resource” to “computing as a service”. However, since cloud computing is not enough to deal with the large amount of data generated by increasing number of connected Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices, and in order to better support time dependent, location dependent, massive scale, and latency sensitive applications, fog computing is proposed as a possible solution. According to its definition, fog computing is a horizontal, system-level architecture that distributes computing, storage, control and networking functions closer to the users along a cloud-to-thing continuum. Hence, fog computing can be regarded as an extension of the traditional cloud-based computing model, which allows computing need to be performed closer to the source of data.

This workshop provides a forum for discussions of the up-to-date developments in information-centric networking, fog computing, edge computing, edge caching for future networks, and brings academic researchers and industry developers together.

Topics of interests

  • Information-centric networking modeling and analysis of integrating communication, computation and caching
  • Trends and challenges of integrating information-centric networking, fog computing, and caching
  • Network architecture and protocol design for artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled fog computing
  • Mobile cloud/fog computation offloading in fog computing enabled wireless networks
  • Content caching and optimization in future networks
  • QoS provisioning, resource management and cross-layer design
  • Network security for fog computing and caching

Workshop 3 – Cooperative Techniques for Future Wireless Communications

Download the HPSR 2019  – Workshop 3 Call for Papers flyer PDF >>

Deployment of cooperative techniques on wireless communication networks has been a subject of recent interest to researchers. The distributed nature of the wireless communication network provides unique opportunities for collaborative and distributed signal processing techniques that can potentially lead to significant energy saving and performance gain. Cooperative Techniques have been well researched especially in recent 5G mobile system. However there are still many unsolved research problems in this field, such as relaying protocols, cooperative methods for physical layer security, cooperative beamforming, distributed coding, and collaborative signal processing strategies, etc.

Topics of interests

The workshop aims to provide a forum for authors to present early research results on cooperative technology for future wireless communication systems, including theoretical principles, tools, applications, systems infrastructure, and testbeds. Topics of interest include (but not limited to) the following:

  • Cooperative Relay Transmission
  • Cooperative Beamforming
  • Cooperative Transmission for Physical Layer Security
  • Cooperative/Distributed Coding
  • Collaborative Signal Processing Strategies
  • Cooperative Massive MIMO System
  • CoMP for 5G cellular system
  • Cooperative driving, intelligent and autonomous vehicles
  • Simulation methodology and platform for Cooperative Techniques

Paper Submission Guidelines

Submitted papers must be unpublished and should not be submitted elsewhere at the same time. Accepted papers should not exceed 6 pages in two-column IEEE Transactions style. Accepted papers longer than 6 pages will be charged for each extra page. Papers cannot be longer than 8 pages. Papers should be submitted as PDF files through the EDAS system. All submitted papers will be subject to three independent reviews.

There is a single registration for all HPSR 2019 attendees, comprising tutorials, main conference, and workshops. To upload the final version of an accepted paper, one author is required to register to HPSR 2019 (full (member or non-member) registration). One full registration to HPSR is sufficient to present two papers accepted at the main conference or at the workshops. The paper will be included in the HPSR 2019 Proceedings and will be published on IEEE Xplore provided that it will be presented by an author of that paper at the conference (the condition holds both for main conference and workshop papers).

Papers can be registered by accessing EDAS or by using the following direct link: https://edas.info/newPaper.php?c=25185 Top scored papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their work to a Special Issue of the Elsevier Journal of Optical Switching and Networking (OSN).
