Emerging Wireless Networks

6th February 2017 - 10th February 2017
Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM),, United States


There is a strong need for more efficient bandwidth use and higher mobile speeds today, given that the global mobile traffic is projected to increase nearly 11-fold between 2013 and 2018. The number of wireless devices has already reached 7 billion, while smart devices that have high computing resources and network connection capabilities increasingly dominate the market. This number is set to increase by an order of magnitude as we enter into the age of Internet-of-things (IoT), where smart sensing and machine-to-machine communication is envisaged to explode in the coming decade (with applications to smart health, smart environments etc.). All this points to fundamental new challenges which will require insights from mathematics, information theory, computer science as well as economics to resolve. The workshop will bring together researchers working on several fundamental aspects of emerging wireless networks.
