Workshop on IMT 2020 Radio Interface Technologies

Download the CfP


The framework of standards for International Mobile Telecommunications (IMT), encompassing IMT-2000 and IMT-Advanced, spans the 3G and 4G industry perspectives and continues to evolve as 5G with IMT-2020. IMT is increasingly becoming the sole means for accessing communication, information, and entertainment. IMT systems, technologies, and architectures supporting mobile broadband continue to evolve to improve on spectrum efficiency & utilization. IMT 2020 (5G) standards are in the process of becoming official in a couple of months. There are numerous use cases for various extreme requirements and large set of technologies developed by a large number of research communities.

Candidate IMT-2020 Technologies were developed to address the set of TPR define by ITU-R Working Party 5D in early year 2017. Some of these technologies continue to evolve, addressing new uses cases, applications and vertical. This workshop is being organized to deliberate on the technology components of these candidates. The workshop calls for contributions in the form of original papers on such areas and topics listed below:

Area and Topics for submission:

  • mmWave channel models
  • AAS & beam management
  • Low latency radio processing
  • Energy Efficiency in massive MTC
  • Waveform design for mmWave
  • FEC for 5G
  • Reliability Optimizations for Industrial IoT
  • Mobile Edge Computing with 5G
  • IMT 2020 5G Standards
  • 3GPP Release 16, 17
  • Use Cases
  • Enabling technologies
  • Spectrum
  • 3GPP 5G standards and related areas

Research paper/work, invited paper, poster and demo are invited from experts.
