(Free) Technical Talk : Emerging Concepts and Technologies towards 5G+ Wireless Networks

You’re cordially invited to a technical talk by Prof. Halim Yanikomeroglu from Carleton University, Canada. The details of this event:
Speaker: Halim Yanikomeroglu (Carleton University)
Title: Emerging Concepts and Technologies towards 5G+ Wireless Networks
Time: 3:00-4:00pm, Friday 27 May 2016
Venue: Seminar Room C, Block C, Faculty of Computer Science and Info Tech., Universiti Putra Malaysia, Serdang.
Since the development of 4G LTE standards around 2010, the research communities both in academia and industry have been brainstorming to predict the use cases and scenarios around 2020, to determine the corresponding technical requirements, and to develop the enabling technologies, protocols, and network architectures towards the next-generation (5G) wireless standardization.
This exploratory phase is winding down as the 5G standardization phase approaches. The first wave of 5G standards are expected to be developed during the 2017-18 timeframe, to be approved by ITU during the 2019-2020 timeframe, and to become operational in the early 2020s. As such, it is time to reinitiate a similar brainstorming endeavour towards the beyond-5G wireless networks; we refer to such networks as 5G+ in order to include the evolution of the 5G standards in 2020s and to perform the groundwork for those to be developed towards 2030.
Despite the recent advances in wireless technologies, the wireless community faces the challenge of enabling a further traffic increase of around 1,000 times, latency reduction of around 100 times, device increase of around 100 times in the next 15 years or so, while no customer is willing to pay more for the wireless pipe itself: the so called “traffic-revenue decoupling”. Moreover, many experts warn that the low-hanging fruits in wireless research (especially in information theory, communications theory, and signal processing) have already been collected. While the research community is full of ideas (as usual), many of these ideas are either not-too-relevant (i.e., not in the bottleneck areas) or they are in areas in which progress toward a tangible implementation is too slow.
The overall goal of the talk is to highlight:
• the emerging concepts and technologies, and
• the necessary analytical tools to study them (such as optimization, game theory, dynamic feedback control, and artificial intelligence).
Halim Yanikomeroglu was born in Giresun, Turkey, in 1968. He received the B.Sc. degree in electrical and electronics engineering from the Middle East Technical University, Ankara, Turkey, in 1990, and the M.A.Sc. degree in electrical engineering (now ECE) and the Ph.D. degree in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Toronto, Canada, in 1992 and 1998, respectively.
During 1993–1994, he was with the R&D Group of Marconi Kominikasyon A.S., Ankara, Turkey. Since 1998 he has been with the Department of Systems and Computer Engineering at Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada, where he is now a Full Professor. His research interests cover many aspects of wireless technologies with a special emphasis on cellular networks. He coauthored about 80 IEEE journal papers, and has given a high number of tutorials and invited talks on wireless technologies in the leading international conferences. In recent years, his research has been funded by Huawei, Blackberry, Samsung, Telus, DragonWave, Communications Research Centre of Canada (CRC), and Nortel. This collaborative research resulted in about 25 patents (granted and applied). Dr. Yanikomeroglu has been involved in the organization of the IEEE Wireless Communications and Networking Conference (WCNC) from its inception, including serving as Steering Committee Member as well as the Technical Program Chair or Co-Chair of WCNC 2004 (Atlanta), WCNC 2008 (Las Vegas), and WCNC 2014 (Istanbul). He was the General Co-Chair of the IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference Fall 2010 held in Ottawa. He has served in the editorial boards of the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON COMMUNICATIONS, IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON WIRELESS COMMUNICATIONS, and IEEE COMMUNICATIONS SURVEYS & TUTORIALS. He was the Chair of the IEEE’s Technical Committee on Personal Communications (now called Wireless Technical Committee). He is a Distinguished Lecturer for the IEEE Communications Society as well as the IEEE Vehicular Technology Society.
Dr. Yanikomeroglu is a recipient of the IEEE Ottawa Section Outstanding Educator Award in 2014, Carleton University Faculty Graduate Mentoring Award in 2010, the Carleton University Graduate Students Association Excellence Award in Graduate Teaching in 2010, and the Carleton University Research Achievement Award in 2009. Dr. Yanikomeroglu spent the 2011–2012 academic year at TOBB University of Economics and Technology, Ankara, Turkey, as a Visiting Professor. He is a registered Professional Engineer in the province of Ontario, Canada.
All are invited to join this exiting event. Thanks.
