Future Wireless Networks: 5G/6G Technology

March 12 - 14, 2018 . Barcelona, Spain
Please note! The previously scheduled course date in September 2017 has been postponed to March 2018.
We recommend you to submit your preliminary or firm registration at least 4 weeks before course start to ensure a seat on the course.


It is anticipated that future wireless networks will incorporate, among the others, the following three paradigms:
1) Serve very dense population of users (Internet of Things and People)
2) Operate with  low energy consumption
3) Operate under joint multi-operator spectra management.

For efficient control and systematic design of these networks necessary modifications of the general complex networks theory tools are required.

The technology enablers are based on  Software Defined Networks (SDN) and Network Functionality Virtualization (NFV). These paradigms enable Wireless Network Slicing (WNS) which is basis for micro trading of the resources in multi-operator network management. Network densification and high sophistication of the relation between multiple operators and network elements require network management solution based on Artificial Intelligence (AI). These new incoming technologies will be in the focus of the course.


The course covers joint design of technology and business models in communication networks. Participants with background in either networks design or networks/internet economics should benefit from participation.
The focus is on 5G networks and participants with general background in networks will be able to follow the course. This includes researchers, students and professors in academia as well as industry, networks operators, regulators and managers in this field.
