Call for Paper



SmartCom2015 is a joint international workshop between SR and SRW technical committees of IEICE, targeting smart wireless communication and covering radio technologies, spectrum management, wireless network, communication theory, and flexible hardware for 5G and beyond. Due to the recent wireless technology advancement, ubiquitous connection becomes familiar with everyone. However, this also leads to the tremendous growth of wireless data traffic, demanding for higher data rate. Therefore, smart communication technologies to address this data crunch are urgently desired. Its solutions are keys for a sustainable future wireless world. In this workshop, we discuss the solutions targeting not only near future but also years beyond 2020. Expected candidate solutions include small cell, heterogeneous networks including microwave/millimeter wave devices and, dynamic spectrum management, etc. The organizing committee wishes that the workshop provides a great opportunity for discussing a future wireless world and become an occasion to launch cooperative research and joint proposal to international standard.
The topics covered by SmartCom2015 include, but not limited to, the following.


Heterogeneous wireless networks
• Ultra broadband small power base stations at higher frequency bands
• User plane / data plane splitting, common pilot channel, mobility management
• Dynamic cell structuring, virtual cell, ghost cell, phantom cell
