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
As a reminder, IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) is accepting proposals in all regions for the 2022 IEEE International Conference on Image Processing (ICIP).
ICIP is the premier international forum for the technological advances and research results in the fields of theoretical, experimental, and applied image and video processing. The series is sponsored by the IEEE Signal Processing Society and has been held annually since 1994. Research frontiers in fields ranging from traditional image processing applications to evolving multimedia and video technologies are regularly advanced by results first reported at ICIP technical sessions. Topics included, but are not limited to:
If you are interested in submitting a proposal, please review the proposal guidelines. The next step is to send a notice of intent, containing the proposed dates and location along with your contact information, to the VP-Conferences and SPS Staff at email@example.com.
After submitting the notice of intent, you will receive a proposal prescreening form, which must be completed and received by 3 March 2018 to firstname.lastname@example.org and will be assessed by the Conference Board Executive Subcommittee. Accepted bidding teams [finalists] will be invited to present at the Conference Board meeting held at ICIP 2018, 7-10 October 2018 in Athens, Greece.
