Description: The NSF-sponsored research coordination network (RCN) aims to spur research and development of mmW wireless, driven by innovations in three key areas: 1) CSP: communication and signal processing techniques; 2) HW: mmW hardware, circuits, antennas, and digital hardware; and 3) NET: wireless networking; along with mmW prototypes and testbeds. The kickoff workshop, held in Dec 2016, generated several exciting ideas for cross-disciplinary collaborations. The second workshop, held in July 2017, further developed the research and technology roadmap at the intersection of HW-CSP and CSP-NET areas, and prototypes and testbeds. Building on the 2nd workshop, the third workshop will emphasize the following areas:
Participation & White Papers: Prospective participants are invited to submit a one-page white paper outlining their research plans and/or demonstration concepts relevant to mmW wireless, including a brief description of their background in the area. The authors are encouraged to consult the agenda, posters and reports from the first two workshops at https://mmwrcn.ece.wisc.edu/?page_id=4. The white papers (pdf) should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Postdoctoral and early-career researchers as well as researchers from under-represented groups are strongly encouraged. Limited funding is available to support the travel cost for academic researchers, including a few international participants, for selected white papers. Please indicate in your white paper if you will be unable to attend without travel support. Accepted white papers will be presented as posters/demos at the workshop. Attendees without white papers, especially from industry, are encouraged to attend, subject to space availability.
