SmartCom 2019 - The 6th International Workshop on Smart Wireless Communications -
SmartCom 2019 is organized by IEICE Technical Committee on Smart Radio (SR) and Wireless Information Network Laboratory (WINLAB), Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey.

ABOUT SMARTCOM

SmartCom is the international workshop jointly organised by several IEICE Technical Committees and technical key players outside Japan. This is the 6th SmartCom in its history, and is hosted in collaboration with academia in the USA. The workshop targets smart wireless communications, and provides a great opportunity for discussing a smarter wireless world in the future. The organizing committee expects that the workshop also represents a great opportunity for networking and initiating cooperative research and joint proposals.

SCOPE

The scope of SmartCom 2019 includes radio technologies, spectrum management, wireless networks, communication theory, flexible hardware, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies for wireless systems, among others. Recent advancement of wireless technologies, mobile applications, and ubiquitous connectivity requires the support of huge volumes of wireless data traffic, demanding higher data rates. Hence, smart communication technologies to address this data demand are urgently required to sustain the future wireless world. In this workshop, we discuss solutions targeting not only the near future but also years beyond 2020, e.g., 5G, beyond 5G and the Internet of things (IoT). Expected candidate solutions include small cells, heterogeneous networks including microwave/millimeter wave devices, dynamic spectrum management, machine learning for wireless communications, and so on.
