The aim of this workshop is to discuss both multi-user communications theory and multiple access techniques in areas related to PHY and MAC layer protocols - and their interactions - for contemporary networks. We intend to provide the experts from both the academic institutes and industry with an opportunity to present their state-of-the-art results and exchange the ideas on multiple access techniques and related areas:
- PHY-layer multiple access techniques
- Link-layer MAC access protocols
- PHY/MAC cross-layer techniques
- Modeling, simulation and analysis techniques
The topics of special interest for the 2017 of the MACOM workshop include, but are not limited to:
- 5G technologies and network architectures
- Internet of Things (IoT)
- Multiuser receivers and successive interference cancellation
- Device-to-device communication
- High reliability and low latency support
- New solutions for 30-300 GHz mmW communications
- Software defined radio and networks for 5G
- Next generation WLANs, including IEEE 802.11ax, 11ac, 11ai, etc.
- Smart, adaptive and self-configurable MAC/PHY protocols
- Cooperative and collaborative MAC/PHY protocols
- MAC/PHY protocols for multi-hop and relay-based networks
- Cognitive radio networks, software radio, dynamic spectrum access and channel bonding techniques
- MAC/PHY protocols supporting MIMO, dynamic spectrum access, spatial multiplexing, full-duplex communication and transmit diversity techniques
- Energy-aware MAC/PHY protocols
- Scheduling and radio resource management, including inter and intra network coexistence techniques
- MAC/PHY solutions for M2M-type communications in Broadband Wireless Networks (IEEE 802.11, 4G, 5G)
- M2M massive communications
- Queueing networks of shared access communication systems
- Game-theoretic queueing models for non-cooperative access on shared channels
- Control of queueing models for multiple access communications
- Green queueing models to assess energy/performance tradeoffs
- Information-theoretic security
- Network information theory
- Multi-user information theory
- Multi-terminal information theory
