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
Published in TC News on 1 February 2015

Several elections took place in the Sensor Array and Multichannel (SAM) technical committee (TC). We congratulate Peter Willett and Martin Haardt for their election and assignment as new SAM TC Chair and Vice-Chair, respectively. We especially thank our past SAM TC Chair Dominic K.C. Ho who was chairing the SAM TC in the past two years for his excellent leadership and dedication.
The SAM TC welcomes the new members: Jacob Benesty (INRS-EMT, Canada), Fulvio Gini (University of Pisa, Italy), Eduard Jorswieck (Dresden University of Technology, Germany), Frédéric Pascal (L2S, Centrale-Supélec, France), Brian Sadler (Army Research Laboratory Adelphi, USA), Ba-Ngu Vo (Curtin University, Australia ) and Yimin Zhang (Villanova University, USA). The members Volkan Cevher, Mounir Ghogho, Geert Leus, Marius Pesavento, and Athina Petropulu have been re-elected for their second term in the SAM TC. We would like to thank the former members Olivier Besson, Rick Blum, Anne Ferreol and Visa Koivunen who have retired from their SAM TC duties for their valuable contributions and their long lasting engagement.
The SAM Technical Committee is proud to be successful with 4 Award nominations in the IEEE Signal Processing Society.
In addition, the SAM member Ali H. Sayed receives the IEEE SPS Best Paper Award for the paper co-authored with Federico S. Cattivelli, entitled “Diffusion LMS Strategies for Distributed Estimation”, IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing, Volume: 58, No. 3, March 2010. We congratulate all SPS Awardees!
The 40th IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing (ICASSP 2015) will be held during April 19-24, 2015 in Brisbane, Australia. ICASSP will feature plenary talks by Iain Johnstone, Pramod K. Varshney, Rob Evans, Richard Baraniuk and Neil Gordon as well as 17 high-quality tutorials on diverse and timely topics for the signal processing community. A total number of 206 original papers have been submitted to ICASSP that fall under the SAM category, out of which 114 papers were accepted. These papers together with 7 Signal Processing Letters presentations are comprised in 5 lecture and 8 poster sessions. We hope to meet you soon in Brisbane!
We would like to announce that following the success of previous CAMSAP workshops the biannual IEEE workshop on Computational Advances in Multi-Channel Sensor Array Processing (CAMSAP 2015) will be held in Cancun, Mexico from December 13-16, 2015. The General Co-Chairs Petar M. Djurić and Jean-Yves Tourneret as well as the Technical Program Co-Chairs Fulvio Gini and Cédric Richard are working hard to make the CAMSAP 2015 a memorable event.

We would like to point out that in this year unfortunately the GlobalSIP is organized at the same time as CAMSAP, which causes some undesirable overlap.
Finally we are happy to announce that the Ninth IEEE Sensor Array and Multichannel Signal Processing Workshop (IEEE SAM 2016) will be held from 10th-13th of July 2016 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (shortly before the Summer Olympics). The General Chairs are Rodrigo C. de Lamare and Martin Haardt. Aleksandar Dogandzic and Vítor Nascimento serve as Technical Chairs. The technical program includes plenary talks by Stephen P. Boyd, Arye Nehorai, Robert Calderbank and A. Lee Swindlehurst.
