Invited Talk 1: ” PoCs and Challenges of Moving Wireless Backhaul for 5G and Beyond”
Dr. Hyun Kyu Chung, Research Fellow, Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute(ETRI), Korea

 
Abtract:
5G is expected to provide high traffic capacity compared to 4G in mobile communication. Among enabling technologies for more capacity, new spectrum utilization would be one of prominent choices for this goal, but still challenging for radio applications. Regarding utilization of millimeter wave band (mmWave), it has been traditionally used in WPAN and WLAN, as well as fixed wireless connectivity in mobile network such as point to point backhaul application. Furthermore, mmWave application to “access link” in hotspot cellular network, which provides enhanced broadband connectivity in small zone area, looks feasible based on world-wide research and trial activities for recent 5G system development. In this talk, as a new attempt for mmWave utilization, application to moving backhaul (or mobile wireless backhaul) will be given. Requirements with motivation and various use cases will be observed. As PoC (Proof of Concept) and trial cases, MHN(Mobile Hotspot Network) for moving train application will be introduced, of which technologies were proven in field verification for Seoul Metro Line #8. In addition, other trial for moving bus application will be presented, which was demonstrated at the site of 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympic as the outcome of Korea-EU collaboration joint research project. Finally challenging Issues for further research are summarized.

Invited Talk 3: ” 5G and the factories of the future”
Prof. Klaus Moessner (5G Innovation Centre (5GIC))

 
Abtract:
Future mobile and fixed networks will look very different from the current networks and they will support a vastly different range of services and applications. They will take the role of a common critical backbone of the various infrastructures we are currently used to. Beyond having to provide the bit-pipes and connectivity for classical communication and high resolution entertainment services, these networks will also form the backbone for services that use at current legacy and private networks. Telemetry, smart electricity and smart water supplies will rely on and share the same infrastructure as content services. These future networks will be replacing legacy and hitherto customised networks, and they will be fully virtualised. Domains like manufacturing will have their own network slices providing the KPIs (eg delay, reliability, throughput) that are needed in the particular factory. This will change the way factories of the future are organised and structured.
This speech will discuss the requirements of factories of the future (FoF) raise towards the underlying communication networks. It will look into the technical details and aspects that 5G (and beyond) networks will need to implement to meet the FoF requirements. Finally it will present the approach taken in the Clear5G project to define extensions necessary to ensure that 5G networks are able to fully support the vision of the FoF.

Invited Talk 4: ” Interference-aware edge caching: From fundamental limits to practical designs”
Dr. An Liu, Distinguished Research Fellow, Zhejiang University, China

 
Abtract:
Many recent works have shown that wireless network performance can be substantially improved by exploiting caching in content-centric wireless networks (CCWN). The early works on this topic focus on exploiting caching to reduce the backhaul loading or the number of hops from the source to the destination. However, the performance of wireless networks is fundamentally limited by interference, and these existing works fail to address this issue. In this talk, we introduce an interference-aware physical layer (PHY) caching framework for CCWN. Such PHY caching design enables MIMO cooperation without the need for expensive backhaul for payload sharing. The fundamental limit of PHY caching is first analyzed and the results show that the proposed PHY caching can achieve the optimal capacity scaling law in large CCWN under Zipf popularity distribution. Then several practical PHY caching and transmission schemes are discussed. The performance of PHY caching depends heavily on the cache content placement algorithm. In many existing algorithms, the cache content placement is adaptive to the long-term popularity distribution in an offline manner. In this talk, we introduce an online PHY caching framework which adapts the cache content placement to microscopic spatial and temporary popularity variations to fully exploit the benefits of PHY caching. Specifically, the joint optimization of online cache content placement and content delivery is formulated as a mixed-timescale drift minimization problem and a low-complexity algorithm is proposed to obtain a throughput-optimal solution. Simulations show that the proposed online PHY caching framework achieves large gain over existing solutions.

Invited Talk 5: ” Caching in HetNets: Throughput-delay trade-off perspective”
Prof. Sang-Woon Jeon, Assitant Professor, Hanyang University, Korea

 
Abtract:
Recently, caching for heterogeneous networks (HetNets) has been actively studied. We analyze the optimal throughput–delay trade-off in content-centric mobile HetNets, where each node moves according to the random walk mobility model and requests a content object from the library independently at random, according to a Zipf popularity distribution. Instead of allowing access to all content objects via costly backhaul, we consider a more practical scenario where mobile nodes and base stations (BSs), each having a finite-size cache space, are able to cache a subset of content objects so that each request is served by other mobile nodes or BSs via multihop transmissions. Under a given caching strategy, we first characterize a fundamental throughput–delay trade-off in terms of scaling laws by introducing a general content delivery multihop routing protocol. Then, the optimal throughput–delay trade-off is characterized by presenting the optimal cache allocation strategy, which jointly finds the replication sets at mobile nodes and BSs via nontrivial variable decoupling. In addition, computer simulations are performed to validate our analytical results. We also show that the optimal strategy strictly outperforms a baseline approach, where the replication sets at mobile nodes and BSs are optimized separately.

Invited Talk 6: ” Information theoretic caching”
Dr. Sung Hoon Lim, Principle Researcher, KIOST, Korea

 
Abtract:
Under the caching paradigm, portions of data are delivered to users before it is known what part of the data the users will request. Coding opportunities arise along at least three axes: file popularity, content similarity, and multi-user advantages. File popularity can be exploited with classical techniques, and hinges on prior statistical knowledge about the users. File similarity can be exploited with strategies akin to distributed source coding. Multiuser coding opportunities can be exploited with strategies reminiscent of network coding and hinge on a broadcast link in the delivery phase, received free of additional charges by many or all users. We start by discussing these coding opportunities. To understand their relative merits, we then discuss several different models, from worst-case to canonical information-theoretic models. Within these models, we discuss information-theoretic performance bounds

Invited Talk 7: ” Selective Inference for Unsupervised Learning and Its Application to Heterogeneous Biomedical Data Analysis”
Prof. Ichiro Takeuchi, Nakoya Institute of Technology, Japan

 
Abtract:
In this talk, we introduce Selective Inference, which has been recently demonstrated to be an effective statistical analysis technique for data-driven scientific discovery, and mainly talk about its application to heterogeneous medical data analysis. When analyzing a medical data set containing heterogeneous samples, one commonly taken approach is the following two-stage method: 1) identify homogeneous groups of samples by clustering, and 2) find genetic factors which characterize each of the identified groups. Unfortunately, however, such two-stage analysis results are often biased since the clustering in the 1st stage and the inference in the 2nd stage are conducted by using same data. In this talk, we show that, by using selective inference framework, we can effectively correct the clustering bias, and demonstrate its effectiveness by applying the method to single cell data analysis.

Invited Talk 8: Fully Convolutional Pixel Adaptive Image Denoiser”
Prof. Taesup Moon, Sungkyunkwan University, Korea

 
Abtract:
In this talk, we propose a new denoising algorithm, dubbed as Fully Convolutional Adaptive Image DEnoiser (FC-AIDE), that can learn from offline supervised training set with a fully convolutional neural network architecture as well as adaptively fine-tune the denoiser for each given noisy image. We mainly follow the framework of the recently proposed Neural AIDE, which formulates the denoiser to be context-based pixelwise affine mappings and utilizes the unbiased estimator of MSE of such denoisers. The three main contributions we make to significantly improve upon the original Neural AIDE are the followings; 1) implementing a novel fully convolutional architecture that boosts the base supervised model, 2) introducing data augmentation for adaptive fine-tuning to achieve much stronger adaptivity, and 3) proposing an effective unknown noise level estimation method. As a result, FC-AIDE is shown to significantly outperform the state-of-the-art CNN-based denoisers on two standard benchmark dataset as well as on a much challenging blind denoising dataset, in which nothing is known about the noise level, noise distribution, or image characteristics.

Prof. Kae Won Choi, Sungkyunkwan University, Korea

 
Abtract:
As the era of internet of things (IoT) emerges, powering massive IoT devices becomes a great challenge in need of immediate attention. This challenge can be resolved by the radio frequency (RF) wireless power transfer (WPT) technology that remotely supplies power to a distant sensor device. In this talk, some issues arising in designing wireless-powered sensor networks (WPSNs) are addressed. This talk covers two approaches for realizing a long-range WPSN: one is to enhance the power transfer efficiency by beam focusing, and the other is to reduce the power consumption of a sensor device by duty
cycling. This talk introduces a prototype WPSN testbed that performs beam focusing with a large-scale antenna array with 64 antenna elements. By demonstrating that a sensor node can perpetually operate at the distance of 50 meters, the potential of turning the WPSN concept into reality is shown.
