Millimetre Wave Radio Comms Technologies – International Workshop

15/11/2018 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

The next generation of wireless systems are expected to act as a platform that will enable growth in areas such as smart cities and independent living. It is expected that systems will evolve to give ubiquitous connections at multi-Gbps data transmission rates. There are many challenges involved in the delivery of such systems spanning spectrum regulation through system architecture to network management.

This workshop is celebrating the 60th Anniversary of Microwave Engineering at Queen’s University Belfast, and is hosted by the Centre for Wireless Innovation at the ECIT Institute. This forum brings international researchers to share the most recent advances in hardware, system and signal processing technologies that will advance radio communications to its next evolution.

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS – Deadline 21 Sept. 2018

Prospective authors are cordially invited to present a research poster on their latest advances in areas related to hardware and system technologies for “5G and Beyond”, including but not limited to:
* RF/mmWave transceiver architectures and system design
* Beamformers and MIMO antennas
* RF/mmWave power amplifiers
* Signal generation, modulation and frequency conversion
* Energy harvesting
* System characterization techniques
* Channel modelling
* High speed A to D and D to A conversion
* Network management
* Spectrum regulation.

Submitted abstracts should be 1 page in length and submitted by email to m.mccusker@ecit.qub.ac.uk by Friday 21 September 2018 (5:30pm / 17:30 hrs.).
