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
Are you looking to energize signal processing students, early stage researchers, and industry practitioners in your area? Consider hosting a Seasonal School for young engineers near you!
Seasonal Schools are interactive events designed to provide attendees with specialized background in select signal processing topics. Professors and established practitioners work closely with attendees in hands-on tutorials and applications, building meaningful collaborative relationships.
The IEEE Signal Processing Society is happy to provide up to US$5,000 of support, on an application basis, to help offset the cost of these workshops and conferences, and we’re accepting proposals for Summer 2019 Seasonal Schools now!
Proposals for Summer 2019 Seasonal Schools are due Thursday, 25 October, with final decisions announced in mid-December.
Questions about the SPS Seasonal Schools program? Visit the Seasonal Schools page on the Society website.
