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.

10 years of news and resources for members of the IEEE Signal Processing Society
by Béatrice Pesquet-Popescu and Fa-Long Luo
(Chair and Past-Chair of the IDSP-SC)
The Industry Digital Signal Processing Technology Standing Committee (IDSP-SC) promotes emerging signal processing applications and industry technologies and also encourages industry participation in the IEEE Signal Processing Society.
At the end of the 2013 year, elections of new TC members took place. We are pleased to welcome the three newly elected members: Jorge Caviedes (Intel Corporation), Eric Nassor (Canon Research, France), Xiaolin Wu (McMaster University, Canada). Also, we would like to thank the members whose term finished in 2013: Farhan Baqai, Madhukar Budagavi, Robert Loce, Srinivasa Somayazulu, Rafid Sukkar, Houman Zarrinkoub.for their valuable contribution to the development of our TC activity. Last but not least, we have elected a Vice-Chair, Umit Batur (Texas Instruments, USA), who will become Chair at Jan 1st, 2015, for a two –year term.
Industry activity in IEEE SP conferences
IDSP -SC supports the Show and Tell sessions at the next ICASSP 2014 and ICIP 2014, promoting thus innovative ways of strengthening the interactions between researchers and practitioners. The demo program is designed to offer a highly interactive and dynamic environment, where participants can demonstrate innovative research prototypes and receive feedback on theoretical generalizations as well as applicability in the real world. This year the Show and Tell session at ICASSP presents 20 demos, from fields as diverse as speech recognition, audio source separation, visual sensor networks, sub-Nyquist cognitive radio, cryptographically secure radios, and MEMS accelerometers.
We are waiting for you also at the poster session “Emerging Industrial Signal Processing Applications" at ICASSP 2014 in Florence, which will highlight the newest industry-related topics: forecasting in wind energy applications, orbit refinement in space applications, face recognitions systems, driver assistance systems, state-of-charge estimation for supercapacitors and many others.
For ICIP 2014 in Paris, the deadline for submission of a Show & Tell proposal is July 1, 2014. You are most welcome to submit your state-of-the-art results, which will be presented to a wide audience of professionals in the area of signal processing. Show & Tell demonstration are expected to be attractive, interesting, innovative and inventive. They are expected to be reasonably self-contained and easy to communicate. Demonstrators are encouraged to use a poster to facilitate the illustration of the scientific and technological aspects involved.
