Date & Time: April 15th, 2019 | 8:30 - 17:00 (GMT+1)
Location: Marrakech, Morocco

Important Dates

Notification of Acceptance Due - February 15, 2019
Final Manuscript Due - March 4, 2019

IEEE Future Network Initiative (Previously known as IEEE 5G Initiative) was formed in 2017 to provide a neutral and all-inclusive platform for 5G evolution by involving multiple societies within IEEE. This initiative has been developing a roadmap for 5G and beyond with an eye to a phase-wise evolution spanning over a period of 3 years, 5 years and 10 years. Its Roadmap working group has been working on several areas including Standardization blocks, MIMO, mmWave, Security, Applications, Satellite, Optics, and Testbeds among others. The testbed working group has already organized three different workshops since 2017 with invited speakers who discussed the lessons learned from building those testbeds. As the operators across the world have started deploying 5G there is much benefit from the lessons learned and experimental results derived from building these testbeds. Hence, it is important to have a workshop that will allow discussing peer-reviewed papers in addition to invited papers. The objective of this workshop is to bring together developers, practitioners, technical experts and researchers to share experiences and advance the state of the art in all aspects of 5G systems prototyping, evaluation, and testing. Given the increased complexity of next generation of communication systems and skyrocketing development costs, the importance of publicly available testbeds is quickly becoming critical for researchers and developers to get access to state-of-the-art infrastructures, in order to prototype and validate their ideas.

In addition to informing the community on the capabilities and usage modalities of existing testbeds, the workshop also aims to solicit contributions and promote discussion on the future experimental platforms as well as to facilitate discussions on co-development and co-deployment of experimental platforms. Of particular interest are ideas on extending publicly available testbeds with 5G-related technologies as they become available, and how they can be used to address common technological and scientific problems that are related to advanced wireless systems. The workshop will offer a spectrum of distinguished speakers from all over the world, who will share their experiences about building testbed and experimental results.

The general topics include, but are not limited to:
o 5G testbed implementation and deployment including real-world lessons learned
o Experimentation with integrated Cloud/MEC/Fog computing
o Integrated Fronthaul/Backhaul with multi-tenancy and federation
o Support for infrastructure slicing and isolation
o Role of common and open source software tools
o 5G Security
o Network Slicing
o Cloud RAN
o Large scale experiment design and deployment
o Testbed design for repeatability and reproducibility
o Tools and services for testbed users and operators (including prototyping)
o Experiments on federated testbeds
o Experimentation with future wireless platforms including Full duplex, Massive and distributed MIMO, cmWave and mmWave, D2D, V2V, V2I, Cognitive Radio
