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.

GanttResearch paper: Cardiovascular Biometrics: Combining Mechanical and Electrical SignalsConference report: BIOSIG 2016 CalendarProposal on IEEE Transactions on Biometrics, Behavior, and Identity Science: IEEE Biometrics Council has submitted a proposal to IEEE for starting a new Transactions, tentatively named as "IEEE Transactions on Biometrics, Behavior, and Identity Science". The proposed IEEE Transactions on Biometrics, Behavior, and Identity Science would be a major source of dissemination of scientific innovations and progress in this domain. Details are provided in the newsletter. The IEEE Biometrics Council request the research community to fill the online form to show their interest in the proposal Transactions: https://tinyurl.com/kmyqhl4 Deadline to submit the online form: March 31, 2017 Call for Proposal for IEEE Conference on Biometrics Theory, Application and Systems (BTAS), 2018 Deadline: May 31, 2017 Details are given at: http://ieee-biometrics.org/
