Topic:

Emerging Concepts and Technologies towards 5G Wireless Networks

The dominant application in 2G, and to a certain extent in 3G wireless networks, has been voice. The dominant application in the current 4G networks is video. Starting in the next decade, most of the traffic in wireless networks is anticipated to be generated by machine-type communications, as a result of the so called “Internet of Things (IoT)” paradigm. The 5G networks are expected to play a much broader role in our lives by enabling the wireless connectivity of an unprecedented number and variety of devices which will facilitate an unprecedented number of services and applications, from health care to intelligent transportation systems and from smart cities to smart agriculture. The envisioned application requirements (such as rate, latency, and reliability) and device characteristics (such as cost, processing power, and energy efficiency) differ by orders of magnitude; this creates many challenges for the wireless research community currently getting ready for the 5G standardization process. The goal of this lecture is • to articulate on the emerging concepts and technologies for 5G wireless networks, and • to identify the necessary analytical tools to study them (such as optimization, game theory, dynamic feedback control, and artificial intelligence). In the absence of a clear technology roadmap towards 5G, the lecture has, to a certain extent, an exploratory view point to stimulate further thinking and creativity. We are certainly at the dawn of a new era in wireless research and innovation; the next twenty years will be very interesting.

Biography: Halim Yanikomeroglu was born in Giresun, Turkey, in 1968. He received the B.Sc. degree in electrical and electronics engineering from the Middle East Technical University, Ankara, Turkey, in 1990, and the M.A.Sc. degree in electrical engineering (now ECE) and the Ph.D. degree in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Toronto, Canada, in 1992 and 1998, respectively.

During 1993–1994, he was with the R&D Group of Marconi Kominikasyon A.S., Ankara, Turkey. Since 1998 he has been with the Department of Systems and Computer Engineering at Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada, where he is now a Full Professor. His research interests cover many aspects of wireless technologies with a special emphasis on cellular networks. He coauthored over 65 IEEE journal papers, and has given a high number of tutorials and invited talks on wireless technologies in the leading international conferences. In recent years, his research has been funded by Huawei, Blackberry, Samsung, Telus, Communications Research Centre of Canada (CRC), and Nortel. This collaborative research resulted in about 20 patents (granted and applied). Dr. Yanikomeroglu has been involved in the organization of the IEEE Wireless Communications and Networking Conference (WCNC) from its inception, including serving as Steering Committee Member as well as the Technical Program Chair or Co-Chair of WCNC 2004 (Atlanta), WCNC 2008 (Las Vegas), and WCNC 2014 (Istanbul). He was the General Co-Chair of the IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference Fall 2010 held in Ottawa. He has served in the editorial boards of the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON COMMUNICATIONS, IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON WIRELESS COMMUNICATIONS, and IEEE COMMUNICATIONS SURVEYS & TUTORIALS. He was the Chair of the IEEE’s Technical Committee on Personal Communications (now called Wireless Technical Committee). He is a Distinguished Lecturer for the IEEE Vehicular Technology Society since 2011.

Dr. Yanikomeroglu is a recipient of the IEEE Ottawa Section Outstanding Educator Award in 2014, Carleton University Faculty Graduate Mentoring Award in 2010, the Carleton University Graduate Students Association Excellence Award in Graduate Teaching in 2010, and the Carleton University Research Achievement Award in 2009. He is a registered Professional Engineer in the province of Ontario, Canada.
