The last few years have witnessed a tremendous growth of the demand for wireless services and a significant increase of the number of mobile subscribers. A recent data traffic forecast from Cisco reported that the global mobile data traffic reached 1.2 zettabytes per year in 2016, and the global IP traffic will increase nearly threefold over the next 5 years. Based on these predictions, a 127-fold increase of the IP traffic is expected from 2005 to 2021. It is also anticipated that the mobile data traffic will reach 3.3 zettabytes per year by 2021, and that the number of mobile-connected devices will reach 3.5 per capita.
With such demands for higher data rates and for better quality of service (QoS), fifth generation (5G) standardization initiatives, whose initial phase was specified in June 2018 under the umbrella of Long Term Evolution (LTE) Release 15, have been under vibrant investigation. In particular, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has identified three usage scenarios (service categories) for 5G wireless networks: (i) enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB), (ii) ultra-reliable and low latency communications (uRLLC), and (iii) massive machine type communications (mMTC). The vast variety of applications for beyond 5G wireless networks has motivated the necessity of novel and more flexible physical layer (PHY) technologies, which are capable of providing higher spectral and energy efficiencies, as well as reduced transceiver implementations.

IEEE.tv Public Access is free to the general public, and made possible by the members of IEEE and select industry-sponsors. IEEE.tv is an award-winning, Internet-based television network. IEEE.tv produces and delivers special-interest programming about technology and engineering for the benefit of IEEE's member and the general public. IEEE members can log in to access special members-only programs and site features including downloads and transcripts.
ICASSP Speaker Highlights
ICASSP2010: The 35th International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing (ICASSP) was held at the Sheraton Dallas Hotel, Texas, USA, March 14 – 19, 2010. ICASSP is the world’s largest and most comprehensive technical conference focused on signal processing and its applications. The conference featured world-class speakers, tutorials, exhibits, and over 120 lecture and poster sessions on a host of topics.
Four plenary talks are included in the ICASSP2010 Event Showcase at IEEE.tv, including:
|PLEN-1: A Celebration of the Science and Technology of DSP, by Ronald W. Schafer, Hewlett-Packard Laboratories|
|PLEN-2: Advances in Neural Engineering, by Metin Akay, University of Houston|
|PLEN-3: Extending Signal Processing into New Application Areas, by James Truchard, National Instruments|
|PLEN-4: Recent Advances in Radar Imaging of Building Interiors, by Moeness Amin, Villanova University|
The featured ICASSP2010 Keynote was Ronald Schafer’s presentation (ICASSP 2010 - Science and Technology of DSP) celebrating the past progress and making assumptions about what the future might hold for the field of DSP. Dr. Shafer is one of the world’s leading authorities on digital signal processing. As a HP Fellow at HP Labs he is focusing on problems of acoustic signal processing for audio communication and entertainment.
IEEE Themes Speaker Highlights
IEEE-THEMES 2010: IEEE-THEMES (IEEE-Thematic Meetings in Signal Processing) is a new joint initiative of the Conference Board and the Publication Board of the IEEE Signal Processing Society (cf. eNews July 2009). The first THEMES was held on March 15, 2010 in Dallas, a one day conjunction with ICASSP2010 at the Sheraton Dallas Hotel in Dallas, Texas, USA. IEEE-THEMES is organized in a single track to cover intensively one focus area each meeting. IEEE-THEMES 2010 focused on “Signal and Information Processing for Social Networks” (cf. eNews Feb 2010). For IEEE-THEMES 2010, over forty submissions were received and undergone a thorough review process similar to those of papers that are submitted to IEEE Transactions and Journals. The best eight papers were selected for presentation at THEMES and inclusion in a special issue of the IEEE Journal of Special Topics in Signal Processing (cf. eNews Feb 2010).
The keynote speaker of THEMES 2010, Vwani Roychowdhury, discusses the Science of Social Networking: Mining, Modeling, and Monetizing the Social Media Revolution. Dr. Roychowdhury is an internationally recognized researcher and esteemed professor at the University of California Los Angeles.
