10:30am-11:00amKeynote 1: Dr. Sanyogita Shamsunder, VP – 5G Ecosystems & Innovation, Verizon  (Duke Energy Hall C/D)

11:00am-11:30am: Coffee Break (Duke Energy Hall A/B)

11:30am-12:30pm: Poster/Demo Session 1 (Duke Energy Hall A/B)

12:30pm-1:30pm: Lunch (Duke Energy Hall A/B)

1:30pm-2:30pm: Poster/Demo Session 2 (Duke Energy Hall A/B)

2:30pm-4:00pm: Breakout Sessions: Research and Technology Development Roadmap 

Three Parallel Sessions

A. HW-CSP Interface: Hardware, Circuits, Antennas & Communication/Signal Processing &  Prototypes/Testbeds  (Duke Energy Hall C/D)

Discussion leaders: Jim Buckwalter (UCSB), Kate Remley (NIST), Rui Ma (Mitsubishi Electric), Mark Rodwell (UCSB), Dave Matolak (U. South Carolina)

Research problems to be addressed at the intersection of hardware and antenna design and communication and signal processing techniques, including development of prototypes and testbeds. Build on the discussions from previous workshops as part of the Technology Roadmap;  

B. CSP-NET Interface: Communication and Signal Processing & Networking (Teaching and Visualization Lab)

Discussion Leaders: Marco Mezzavilla (NYU), Ismail Guvenc (NCSU), Kim Mahler (Fraunhofer HHI), Michele Polese (U. Padova), Tanguy Ropitault (NIST), Jing Zhu (Intel)

Research problems to be addressed at the intersection of communication and signal processing and networking techniques; including the role of channel models and testbeds. In particular, the role of accurate physical layer and channel models in end-to-end network simulations (using the ns-3 platform, e.g.). Builds on the issues and challenges identified in the previous workshops; 

C. Development of Cost-Effective Community Testbeds for Research and Experimentation (Creativity Studio)

Discussion leaders: Brian Floyd (NCSU)Dan Baker (NI), Kira Theuer (NI), Manu Gosain (Northeastern, PAWR PPO), Arjuna Madanayake (FIU)

Discussion of the feasible pathways for developing flexible and cost-effective testbeds to enable research and experimentation in mmWave. The testbed would: i) enable experimentation  and optimization at all layers, ii) have a modular structure to swap different components (e.g, antennas, RF chains), iii) enable end-to-end experimentation in a network setting; and iv) have an intuitive graphical user interface. The objective is for the RCN community to create a roadmap of activities  to generate a concrete proposal and a team of researchers to execute it.  Builds on discussions from earlier workshops;; video link of the breakout session at the 4th workshop (NYU)

4:00pm-4:30pm: Coffee Break (Duke Energy Hall A/B)

4:30pm-5:30pm: Poster/Demo Session 3 (Duke Energy Hall A/B)

6:00pm: Dinner (Lonnie Poole Golf Course Dining)
