We are pleased to announce the Call for Participation for the 7th mmW RCN workshop to be held at the University of South Carolina on May 18-19, 2020; https://mmwrcn.ece.wisc.edu/workshops/seventh-workshop-may-2020/.
The six of the originally planned workshops for this NSF-sponsored RCN project have concluded. The last workshop held at NIST in July 2019 was a fruitful event in which we also got an opportunity to reflect back on the RCN activities and accomplishments and to discuss plans for the future. There was one issue on which there was unanimous consensus: the desire of the community to continue the RCN in the future. Building on the discussion at the last workshop, the 7th mmW RCN workshop is aimed at brainstorming and identifying research directions and themes for the next RCN project. Some of the research themes that have been suggested, include:
- Higher frequencies, THz and beyond, for both communications and sensing.
- Community testbed design and development.
- Accurate channel modeling and network simulation at mmW and higher frequencies.
- New concepts and use cases, including large scale problems and the use of data-driven machine learning techniques.
Prospective participants are invited to submit a one-page white paper (deadline: Mar 6, 2020) outlining their recent results and/or demonstration concepts relevant to mmW wireless, especially as they relate to themes and topics that may be relevant to the next RCN project. Postdoctoral and early-career researchers as well as researchers from under-represented groups are strongly encouraged. Accepted white papers will be presented as posters and/or demos at the workshop. Limited funding is available to support the travel cost of academic researchers, including a few international participants, for selected white papers. The one-page white papers should be submitted in pdf format to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please see the Call for Participation (pdf) or the workshop webpage, for additional details and submission instructions.
