Speaker 1: Prof. Kwang-Cheng Chen
Title: Ultra-Low Latency Communication and Networking for Internet of Things
Abstract: The networking technology needs of Internet of Things (IoT) comes to a new paradigm. Autonomous (or unmanned) vehicles (AVs) merge as one major paradigm shift of the industry and human society, while introducing much more challenging in wireless networks beyond the connected vehicles. After the technology for single intelligent vehicle becoming mature, the real challenge comes from reliable, safe, real-time operation of autonomous vehicles in massive scale. To achieve such multi-scale control, effective cloud computing, edge computing, and on-board computing, functions in real-time to interact with environments and other agents like vehicles and individuals. Low-latency networking in the order of milliseconds is inevitably wanted to ensure successful computing and control in this most challenging Internet of Things, with augmented reality, virtual reality, real-time control of telemedicine etc. We will introduce the revolution of technology toward the facilitation of low-latency networking and communication to enable real-time decisions/actions and control, and thus the successful deployment of AVs and other IoT applications in massive scale.

Dr. Chen founded a wireless IC design company in 2001, which was acquired by MediaTek Inc. in 2004. He has been actively involving in the organization of various IEEE conferences as General/TPC chair/co-chair (2002 IEEE Globecom, 2010 IEEE VTC-Spring, and 2020 IEEE Globecom), serving editorships with a few IEEE journals, and various IEEE volunteer services with IEEE Fellow Committee, IEEE VTS Fellow Evaluation Committee, IEEE VTS Distinguished Lecturer, etc. He founds and chairs the Technical Committee on Social Networks in the IEEE Communications Society. Dr. Chen also has contributed essential technology to various international standards like IEEE 802 wireless LANs, Bluetooth, LTE and LTE-A. He has authored and co-authored over 300 IEEE publications and more than 22 granted US patents. He co-edited (with R. DeMarca) the book Mobile WiMAX published by Wiley, and authored the book Principles of Communications published by River, and co-authored (with R. Prasad) another book Cognitive Radio Networks published by Wiley. Dr. Chen is an IEEE Fellow and has received a number of awards including 2011 IEEE COMSOC WTC Recognition Award, 2014 IEEE Jack Neubauer Memorial Award, and 2014 IEEE COMSOC AP Outstanding Paper Award. Dr. Chen’s current research interests include wireless networks, IoT/CPS, social networks and data analytics, and cybersecurity.
Speaker 2: Prof. Jiandong Li
Title: Self-organizing Networking (SON) in 5G Ultra-Dense Heterogeneous Networks (UDN)
Abstract: In this talk, the background for UDN is introduced first. To support the high traffic, the basic way is to reduce the cell radius (10km->1km->100m->10->1m) and increase the density of cells. The following two questions are addressed. Does the whole network capacity increase linearly with the network density? If not, can we extend the network density range with linearly increased capacity by using the new SON techniques? New propagation mode in UDN is given. Network capacity gain of UDN is analyzed. Two new techniques: SON Empowered Interference Management and SON for UGC Management are proposed.
