NEWCOM# Emerging Topics Workshop: D2D and mmW – New Paradigms for 5G
Device-to-device (D2D) and millimeter wave (mmW) communications are two promising paradigms for 5G networks. Theproximity of users in D2D promises huge data rates, low latency, and reduced power consumption. Furthermore, thereuse factor can be reduced below 1. D2D also has the potential for improved coverage and enables new services.The huge amount of unused spectrum in the mmW band (3–300GHz) may provide the bandwidth required for future mobile broadband applications. Moreover, mmW communications is attractive for mobile systems due to the small size of components, e.g., antennas.
This workshop will bring together researchers from academia and industry to exchange and discuss recent resultsrelated to D2D and mmW communications and to identify challenges that need to be addressed for a successful adoption of D2D and mmW in 5G systems. The workshop lasts for two full days and will consist of a mix of invited talks by renowned top experts in the field and of presentations contributed from an open call among the NEWCOM# partners. If you are interested in giving a talk about your D2D or mmW activities, please contact one of the workshop chairs. The technical program will be complemented by an evening banquet on Oct. 27, 2014.
