2017 IEEE SPS SUMMER SCHOOL ON SIGNAL PROCESSING FOR 5G WIRELESS ACCESS
Gothenburg (Swewden) · from 29 May to 1 June, 2017
Gothenburg hosts from may 29th to June 1st the 2017 IEEE SPS SUMMER SCHOOL ON SIGNAL PROCESSING FOR 5G WIRELESS ACCESS. This event belongs to the successful series of Seasonal Schools in Signal Processing (S3P), established in 2010.
2017 edition is jointly organized by Chalmers University of Technology, Linköping University, University of Texas at Austin, Aalborg University, and University of Vigo.The school features a unique program of lectures, assembled by leading experts in the field of signal processing for communications, including AtlantTIC researcher Nuria Gonzalez-Prelcic. She has co-authored more than 20 journal and conference papers in the last two years in the topic of signal processing for MIMO communication, especially mmWave communication. She has also co-authored a tutorial IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Signal Processing on mmWave MIMO and was also a guest editor for the same special issue. She is associate editor for the IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communicationss. Gonzalez-Prelcic has co-organized with Prof. Robert Heath two special sessions on mmWave communications at SPAWC 2015 and Asilomar 2016, and delivered a tutorial on SP for mmWave MIMO at GLOBECOM 2016.
Signal processing, the core of 5G
Signal processing is at the core of the emerging fifth generation (5G) cellular communication systems, which will feature revolutionary changes in the physical layer. The objective of this summer school is to teach the main physical-layer techniques for 5G from a signal-processing perspective. The lectures will provide background on 5G wireless communication concepts, and their formulation from a signal processing perspective. Emphasis will be placed on showing specifically how cutting-edge signal processing techniques can be used in 5G.
The lecture topics include: Massive MIMO, mmWave communications, positioning, and massive machine-to-machine (M2M) communication. Through the course of the lectures, connections will be made to core signal processing topics, including channel estimation via compressed sensing, while also introducing the mathematics associated with the analysis and optimization of communication systems.
