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
Professor Jose M. F. Moura, IEEE Life Fellow, has been elected as the 2018 IEEE President-Elect. Pending acceptance of the IEEE Tellers’ Committee report by the IEEE Board of Directors on 19-20 November. Moura will begin serving as IEEE President on 1 January 2019.
He holds a D. Sc. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, M.Sc., and EE degrees all from MIT and an EE degree from Instituto Superior Técnico (IST, Portugal). He was a visiting Professor at the Center for Urban Science and Progress (CUSP) and at NYU in 2013-2014, a visiting Professor at MIT (2006-2007, 1999-2000, and 1984-86), a visiting scholar at USC (Summers of 79-81), and was on the faculty of IST (Portugal).
Moura's research interests are in Data Science and Signal Processing on Graphs, also referred to as Graph Signal Processing, including distributed decision and inference in networked systems. Besides signal processing on graphs and analytics for Big Data, recent projects included distributed detection in sensor networks, robust detection and imaging by time reversal, bioimaging, SPIRAL, DSP on Graphs, SMART, and image/video processing. His work has been sponsored by several Darpa, NIH, ONR, ARO, AFOSR, and NSF grants, and several industrial grants.
Moura received the IEEE Signal Processing Society Society Award for outstanding technical contributions and leadership in signal processing, the IEEE Signal Processing Society Technical Achievement Award for fundamental contributions to statistical signal processing.
In 2016 he was IEEE Vice President for Technical Activities and IEEE Board Member and Director. In 2012-13, he was on the Board of Directors of the IEEE and serve as IEEE Division IX Director(2012-13).
He has served on several IEEE Boards including the IEEE Products and Services Board, the Education Activities Board (2010), Technical Activities Board (2008-09), Press Board, the TAB Periodicals, and the TAB Publications Review Committee, and chaired the TAB Transactions Committee (joining all 80+ IEEE Editors in Chief). He served as Vice-Chair of the IEEE Publications Services and Products Board (PSPB) (2008).
He was the President of the IEEE Signal Processing Society (2008-2009). He was Editor in Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing and acting Editor in Chief for the IEEE Signal Processing Letters. He was on the Editorial Board of several Journals, including the ACM Transactions on Sensor Networks and the IEEE Proceedings. He was in the steering committee of the IEEE International Symposium on Bioimaging (ISBI) and is on the steering committee of the ACM/IEEE International Symposium on Information Procesing in Sensor Networks (IPSN). He was one of the guest editors of the 2005 February February 2005 Special Issue on Program Generation, Optimization, and Platform Adaptationand co-guest edited the 2004 January Special Issue of the IEEE Signal Processing Magazine on iterative signal processing.
Moura received, in 2000, the IEEE Third Millennium Medal for outstanding achievements and contributions, the 2003 IEEE Signal Processing Meritorious Service Award, in 2006 an IBM Faculty Award.
