Empowering Intelligent Communications

Call For Papers

This 1st International Workshop on Rate-Splitting for 5G and Beyond will take place during IEEE ICC 2019 in Shanghai. The workshop will provide a forum for sharing new ideas, hearing recent developments and brainstorming on emerging rate-splitting techniques for 5G and beyond networks. We aim to bring together leading researchers in the field, both from academia and industry, to share their recent findings and their views on how RS can tackle numerous challenges of future generation networks.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • RS to achieve the fundamental limits of wireless networks
  • RS for multi-user/multi-cell multi-antenna networks
  • RS-based robust interference management
  • RS in MU-MIMO, CoMP, Massive MIMO, millimetre wave MIMO, relay, cognitive radio, coded caching, physical layer security, cooperative communications
  • Rate-Splitting Multiple Access to generalize SDMA and NOMA
  • Physical layer design of RS-based network
  • Coding and Modulation for RS
  • Cross-layer design, optimization and performance analysis of RS
  • Implementation and standardization of RS
  • RS applications in massive MTC, massive IoT, V2X, cellular, UAV and satellite networks
