IEEE PIMRC – Workshop on Full-Duplex Technologies for Next-Generation Wireless Communications
September 8 @ 08:00 - September 11 @ 17:00
Driven by the rapidly increasing demand for high data rate services and usage in a spectrum of application areas, wireless systems are compelled to evolve in order to meet the extraordinary performance requirements, especially in terms of spectral efficiency, coverage, latency and energy efficiency.
Full Duplex is a duplexing scheme that allows a communication device to simultaneously transmit and receive wireless signals on the same channel (frequency band). Enabled by means of self-interference and cross link interference management methodology, Full Duplex can significantly increase the throughput for each allocated channel and furthermore improve the total system capacity. The inherent capability of Full Duplex can provide an opportunity to reduce round-trip latency for data transmission, which is due to transmission of acknowledgment or feedback information, and to implement an in-band and out-of-band relay system.
The benefits and challenges of applying Full Duplex to Wi-Fi standards have recently begun discussion in IEEE 802.11. A few international workshops are also recently organized that discusses on the feasibility of using Full Duplex for next generation cellular networks. Full Duplex will be a key technology that will shape the future. And after a wave of the first release of 5G standardization, full duplex is also brought up for future research in 3GPP scope.
The obvious interest shown through the participation in the standardization and international workshops, as well as the ongoing research, demo and implementation of prototypes indicates that Full Duplex will have a significant presence in future wireless communications. However, several important issues still need to be effectively addressed by industry and academia.
In response to the above momentum of interest and popularity, the proposed workshop aims at providing an interactive platform for industry and academic to timely exchange research, findings, and key technical challenges associated with Full Duplex. In this context, papers are solicited reporting on the following representative and important topics, but not limited to:
- Full duplex uses cases and deployment scenarios
