CALL FOR PAPERS
MIMO with a large number of antennas placed in a 2D array at the base station called e.g. Full Dimension MIMO (FD-MIMO) or 3D MIMO is one technology to increase system capacity in LTE-Advanced systems. The idea is to use both azimuth and elevation to exploit all the spatial dimensions of the MIMO channel. A large number of antenna elements improves the capability of shaping a narrow beam resulting in possibility of enhanced multiuser MIMO operations leading to a preliminary implementation of massive MIMO. As the fourth generation (4G), namely LTE-Advanced, is becoming widely deployed, the research community and mobile industry are now looking into future 5G technologies. Antennas and massive MIMO will play an even more important role in 5G systems both at lower frequencies (< 6 GHz) and at higher frequencies (> 25 GHz).
This symposium aims to bring together leading researchers in both academia and industry to share their views on and to identify the emerging concepts and technologies for MIMO with a large number of antennas in a path to 5G. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:
• Higher order massive MIMO and FD-MIMO for existing cellular frequency bands
o 3D channel models
o Antenna array architectures
o Low complexity beamforming, adaptive beamforming, multiuser beamforming
o Efficient channel estimation and feedback
• Massive MIMO for mmWave bands
o mmWave MIMO channel models
o Performance analysis for mmWave
o Beamforming architectures including hybrid and 1-bit
o Channel estimation
o Multiuser beamforming strategies
• Distributed massive MIMO and FD-MMO systems
Submission of Papers: Prospective authors are invited to submit full-length papers, with up to four pages for technical content including figures and possible references, and with one additional optional 5th page containing only references. Manuscripts should be original (not submitted/published anywhere else) and written in accordance with the standard IEEE double-column paper template. All paper submissions should be carried out through EDAS system (http://edas.info). A selection of best papers and best student papers will be made by the GlobalSIP 2015 best paper award committee upon recommendations from Technical Committees.
Notice: The IEEE Signal Processing Society enforces a "no-show" policy. Any accepted paper included in the final program is expected to have at least one author or qualified proxy attend and present the paper at the conference. Authors of the accepted papers included in the final program who do not attend the conference will be subscribed to a "No-Show List", compiled by the Society. The "no-show" papers will not be published by IEEE on IEEEXplore or other public access forums, but these papers will be distributed as part of the on-site electronic proceedings and the copyright of these papers will belong to the IEEE.
