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
SPS Past President and Chair, Nominations and Appointments Committee
Members-at-Large Election Results:
Three new Members-at-Large will take their seats on the IEEE Signal Processing Society Board of Governors beginning 1 January 2018 and will serve until 31 December 2020. Nine candidates competed for the three Member-at-Large positions. The successful candidates represent a broad spectrum of the IEEE Signal Processing Society. The successful candidates are:
Shoji Makino, University of Tsukuba
Athina P. Petropulu, Rutgers University
Paris Smaragdis, University of Illinois
Completing their terms as Members-at-Large on 31 December 2017 are: Maria Sabrina Greco, University of Pisa; Steve Young, University of Cambridge; and Abdelhak Zoubir, Darmstadt University of Technology. The Board of Governors (BoG) is the governing body that oversees the activities of the IEEE Signal Processing Society. The SPS BoG has the responsibility of establishing and implementing policy, and receiving reports from its standing boards and committees. Members-at-Large represent the member view point in the Board decision-making. They typically review, discuss, and act upon a wide range of items affecting the actions, activities, and health of the Society. More information can be found at the IEEE Signal Processing Society website.
Regional Directors-at-Large Election Results:
Two new Regional Directors-at-Large will take their seats on the Signal Processing Society Board of Governors and Membership Board beginning 1 January 2018 and will serve until 31 December 2019. Regional Directors-at-Large promote and foster local activities (such as conferences, meetings, social networking) and encourage new chapter development; represent their regions to the core of SPS; offer advice to improve membership relations, recruiting and service to their regions; guide and work with their corresponding chapters to serve their members; and assist the Vice President-Membership in conducting chapter reviews. The new Regional Directors-at-Large are:
Eduardo A.B. Da Silva,
Completing their terms as Regional Directors-at-Large on 31 December 2017 are: Paulo S. R. Diniz, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro - COPPE for Regions 7 &9 and Hitoshi Kiya, Tokyo Metropolitan University for Region 10.
