WS-03: Small Cell and 5G Networks (SmallNets)

Organizer: Walid Saad (Wireless@VT, Virginia Tech, USA)

The demand for high-speed wireless access is expected to grow significantly in the foreseeable future. The emergence of new services such as mobile video streaming leads to stringent requirements on the quality-of-service that next generation wireless networks must deliver. This has urged wireless and mobile operators to examine new ways for improving their coverage, boosting their network's capacity, and lowering their expenditures. A promising approach to solving this problem is through network densification via the massive deployment of Small Cell Networks (SCNs). SCNs will enable next-generation networks to provide seamless, high-quality wireless access. Combined with emerging paradigms such as millimeter wave communication, SCNs are expected to lie at the heart of 5G wireless systems. This workshop will bring together academic and industrial researchers in an effort to identify and discuss the major technical challenges and recent results related to small cell and 5G networks.
