Professor Papadias gave an invited talk entitled “Some Enabling Technologies for Large-Scale Communication Systems” at the 41st Wireless World Research Forum (WWRF) meeting, which was held in Herning, Denmark, on Oct. 30, 2018. He also participated in a panel on “Key Innovations Beyond 5G”.

The talk presented a number of promising technologies for next generation large-scale wireless networks that range from highly spectrally and energy efficient mobile networks to low-latency / high reliability and massive machine-type communication networks.

The proposed techniques included hybrid antenna arrays for Massive and mmWave transmission, precoding techniques for cloud-radio based communication, cross-layer scheduling techniques for low latency and licensed shared access techniques for QoS guarantees in spectrum shared systems, among others. WWRF is a global think-tank and key pre-standardization forum on wireless networks that encourages research that will achieve unbounded communications to address key societal challenges for the future. and
