IEEE VTC Fall Workshop: 5G Millimeter-Wave Channel Measurement, Models, and Systems – 5G mmWave Channel Model Alliance Wiki

IEEE VTC Fall Workshop: 5G Millimeter-Wave Channel Measurement, Models, and Systems – 5G mmWave Channel Model Alliance Wiki.

Final (extended) submission deadline: May 31, 2017. Either 5-page full paper or 2-page extended summary. Tentative workshop date: Sep 24, 2017, Toronto, Canada.

A good venue to publish cross-disciplinary and system-level research spanning all aspects of mmW research.

5G will require harmonization across licensed and unlicensed spectrum

3GPP to study 5G in unlicensed as part of accelerated standard schedule

Good start. Perhaps future generations will have an antenna architecture more representative of the narrower and electronically steerable beams that will be used in actual systems. For example phased arrays or lens antenna arrays (one developed at UW-Madison shown below).
