The next generation mobile network, the 5G, is expected to unlock many new services and provide a platform to enable growth in many industries from smart cities, public safety, independent living, to smart agriculture. One of the key requirements for 5G is to provide ubiquitous connections to billions of devices and with multi-Gbps data transmission to meet 1,000 times increased capacity. To bring 5G to reality, there are countless challenges lying ahead, ranging from spectral regulation to system architecture through to network management. Many of the most difficult scientific challenges are located at the “Physical Layer”, due to some fundamental limitations imposed by the nature of electromagnetic energy used. As a result, significant research is required to enable advanced microelectronic circuits and smart hardware implementation to achieve a working system. The IMWS-5G 2018 workshop provides a unique opportunity to bring together researchers and practitioners of different background to share the most recent advances in hardware and system technologies in 5G. The conference will feature exciting technical programs, industry exhibits, and invited talks by worldwide recognized experts.
The IMWS-5G 2018 will be held at University College Dublin, Dublin 4, Ireland. Dublin is the capital and largest city of Ireland. It is located on Ireland's east coast at the mouth of the River Liffey. The city has an urban area population of 1.1 million. Its historic buildings include Dublin Castle, dating to the 13th century, and imposing St Patrick’s Cathedral, founded in 1191. Dublin's elegant Georgian architecture makes it one of Europe's most attractive capitals. Dublin was voted Europe's fourth most popular city break destination, behind London, Paris and Rome and is one of the friendliest capital cities in the world.
The purpose of IMWS-5G 2018 is to boost technical and educational activities as well as exchanges and collaborations within the international research community. Perspective authors are cordially invited to submit papers in all areas related to 5G hardware and system technologies, including but not limited to:
Submitted papers should be three pages in length. Accepted contributions will be published in the workshop proceedings and will be archived in IEEE Xplore.
