IC1004 - Newcom# Training School


IC1004 - Newcom# Training School on
"Beyond 4G Networks: From Theory to Experimentation and Back"

November 25 - 28, 2013
CTTC, Castelldefels (Spain)

The school is organized and supported by the COST IC1004 Action and the FP7 Network of Excellence Newcom#. It aims at training young researchers working in the area of B4G radio networks, with emphasis on:

  • the role of experimentation as means to characterize the radio environment and test system performance in real contexts;
  • the interplay between theory and experimentation, fundamental to an accurate and efficient system design;
  • the relevance of a multi-­‐disciplinary approach to research, requiring knowledge of channel, link and network aspects.

The event will features a keynote speech by Werner Mohr, Head of Research Alliances at Nokia (NSN), three parallel experimental sessions, and theoretical lectures on radio channel characterisation, localisation, and network aspects of multi-hop networks.

The school program will evolve around four Tracks:
T1) B4G networks and the 2020 City: technology bricks, requirements, applications, network scenarios, research challenges;
T2) Hybrid Localization: from satellite to heterogeneous localization techniques for B4G networks;
T3) Multi-­‐Hop Networks: MAC and routing aspects for the IoT component of B4G networks in the 2020 City;
T4) Radio Channel Characterization: estimation and modeling in urban environments, with the purpose of PHY assessment.

Registrations open on October 15 at 12h00 CET and deadline is set on November 15 at 12h00 CET.
