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
The IEEE Signal Processing Society welcomes proposals from prospective organizers of 2018 summer schools under the S3P (Seasonal Schools in Signal Processing) Program. S3P seasonal schools are typically either summer schools or winter schools, and are geared towards providing graduate students, early stage researchers, and practitioners with background on selected topics in signal processing. Organizers of Signal Processing Society workshops and conferences are encouraged to submit proposals for seasonal schools linked to their event.
The primary objective for creating a seasonal school program is membership development for students with interests in signal processing. Students are the future of our Society. It is essential that we provide special membership development opportunities for this important group of members. For more details about the S3P Program, and for links to recent events that have been organized under this program, please visit the Seasonal Schools page on SPS website.
The S3P Program is now soliciting proposals for 2018 summer schools. Proposers should submit their proposal white papers, following the guidelines summarized below by 2 November. 2018 summer schools should be planned in the period April 1, 2018 to September 30, 2018. White papers should be submitted in PDF format by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Any questions should be directed to the same address: email@example.com.
Deadline to submit proposals ………………………………………2 November 2017
Decisions announced ………………………………………………… 28 December 2017
Proposal Preparation Guidelines
Proposers should submit their proposals by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Proposals should be 3-4 pages in length in 11 or 12 point font. Proposals should address the following points:
The non-student rates are oriented towards practioners, and those rates can be significantly higher (e.g., $500 for a single day or $800 total as examples). For practitioners, a single-day rate is useful since some may have trouble leaving work for several consecutive days.
The specific dollar amounts provided here are only examples. Organizers should adjust the amounts based on local considerations, anticipated external support, etc. Even if enough support is available to cover student registration costs completely, some modest registration costs are suggested for students so that they and their advisors are “invested” in the program.
When preparing the budget, proposers are advised to not plan on having business class travel (use economy class) for speakers unless it can be supported directly from external (non SPS) funds. IEEE funds cannot be used to pay for business class travel.
The budget provided in the white paper should also address the following points:
If a seasonal school white paper is approved, the organizers will be encouraged to develop a full proposal for more comprehensive review by the Membership Board.
