Track 5 Workshop on “Intelligent receiver for future wireless communication systems”

The Workshop titled “Intelligent receiver for future wireless communication systems” is collocated with 4th edition of the international Conference on Wireless Communications, Signal Processing and Networking (WiSPNET) technically co-sponsored by IEEE, will be held at Electronics & Communication Engineering Department, Sri Sivasubramaniya Nadar College of Engineering, Chennai-603110, India, from March 21 - 23, 2019. The aim of the workshop is to foster fruitful interactions among signal designers, researchers and communications practitioners from all over the world.

Challenges: Spectrum crisis has increasingly become a primary issue for future wireless communications. Despite its shortage, a huge amount of spectrum is still allocated to transmit redundant data, such as the training sequences, instead of being utilized by the users. An effective way to overcome this is to implement a blind wireless receiver (BWR) and adaptive or dynamic transceiver system.

Motivation: Theoretical studies on blind parameter estimation algorithms for signals have been carried out over the past decades. However, most of them have not been implemented and measured in order to validate their feasibility. Using NI PXI Express technology, an intelligent wireless receiver testbed based on single and multi-carrier signals has been developed. It performs the signal classification, modulation identification, parameters estimation, i.e., symbol timing offset and carrier frequency offset estimation. The workshop lecture content covers:

  • Design and implementation of blind wireless receiver including symbol timing offset estimation, carrier frequency offset estimation and modulation classification

  • Channel modeling, characterization, and estimation.

  • Performance analysis of cooperative communication, secrecy capacity analysis of cooperative communication in the presence of cognitive radio.

  • Designing of orthogonal or near orthogonal signal for wireless communication

Topics: The topics of this workshop include, but are not limited to, the topics listed below:

  • Blind receiver design for future wireless communication

  • Modulation classification, synchronization, CFO, STO

  • Channel modeling, characterization and estimation

  • OFDM, multi-carrier modulation, MIMO

  • Cooperative, Cognitive radio, spectrum sensing

  • PHY layer security for wireless communication

  • Information-theoretic aspects of wireless communications

  • Software-defined mobile/wireless networks

  • Testbed and prototype implementation of wireless services

  • Cognitive radio and networking

  • Wireless network security and privacy

  • Wireless network measurements and characterization

  • Signal processing for wireless communications
