T1: Smart Cities - Technologies, Big Data and Citizens

Today, more than 1 in 2 is living in urban environments with related efforts to facilitated viable living conditions becoming tremendous. Urged by these observations, city halls and political decision makers have become very alert, calling for urgent solutions to the growing problems. Quickly advancing ICT technologies may just be the answer, which has triggered global ICT players to have launched various smart city initiatives. This corroborates that suitable technologies are a cornerstone to a sustainable development of a city. This is facilitated by means of smart services which are reliant on data-gathering technologies in the field, “big data”-processing technologies in the cloud, and citizens using these technologies. The aim of this tutorial is to explore the fairly intricate Smart City eco-system. The first part of the tutorial will focus on Smart City technologies, where we focus on the emerging principles of machine-to-machine (M2M) communications. We will provide an indepth introduction to the particularities of M2M systems, and then dwell on the capillary and cellular embodiments of M2M. The focus of capillary M2M will be on IEEE (.15.4e) and IETF (6LoWPAN, ROLL, COAP) standards compliant low-power multihop networking designs; furthermore, for the first time, low power Wifi will be dealt with and positioned into the ecosystem of capillary M2M. The focus of cellular M2M will be on latest activities, status and trends in leading M2M standardization bodies with technical focus on ETSI M2M and 3GPP LTE-M; furthermore, we will discuss analytical and simulation works quantifying the performance and impact of M2M in legacy cellular networks. In the second part, an M2M Smart City market and business perspective will be provided. Understanding the potential of Big Data, the market trends and the business models applicable to M2M are fundamental to inspire academia and industry to devise new technologies and put into market viable and flexible M2M solutions. It also facilitates the deployment of above Smart City technologies and thus their use in below settings. In the third part, we recognize that private and public stakeholders have to put citizens at the heart of smart city projects, with HCI bridging the machine and human worlds. One of the big challenges in contemporary research in HCI applied to smart cities has to do with the design and evaluation of technologies, devices and services that would improve citizens’ well-being while fostering sustainable behaviors and empathy. We will also illustrate some M2M and HCI approaches towards a smart city, focusing on citizen engagement, user-centered design and participatory design of novel interfaces, nudge technologies and ambient displays. We aim to present smart city solution proposals, best practices and project ideas. This tutorial highlights the shift in industries servicing the cities; the importance of “big data” –the oil of the 21st century; and the inevitability of keeping the human in the loop. Along the entire tutorial, challenges and open issues will be identified, thus making the material presented in this tutorial useful for industry and governing bodies, and inspiring for researchers and academics alike.

T2: Advances in Wireless Network Coding - The Future of Cloud Communications

The tutorial addresses strategies and principles of PHY layer coding and signal processing fully respecting and utilizing knowledge of the network structure. This technique substantially increases the overall network throughput, efficiency and reliability. Wireless Network Coding (WNC) (a.k.a. Physical Layer Network Coding) is a general framework for PHY layer coding and processing strategies in which PHY behavior at a given node depends on its position in the network topology, and the signal-level processing/decoding uses multiple paths between source and destination. We address the design of Network Coded Modulation as network structure aware signal space code processing a (hierarchical) joint function of source data and utilizing hierarchical decoding and designed for final destination decoding using multiple hierarchical observations. The tutorial will address the fundamental principles of WNC put into a context of network information theory with a comprehensive classification of the strategies. A section on advanced design and techniques will cover particular coding and processing designs and their respective properties. We will also address selected hot research topics and open problems.

T4: Green Heterogeneous Small-cell Network

Heterogeneous small-cell networks (HetSNets) are considered as a striking solution to the challenging demands such as high spectral and energy efficiency of mobile communications networks. HetSNets are typically composed of multiple radio access technologies (RATs) where multiple low-power, low-cost user/operator deployed base stations (BSs) are complementing the existing macrocell network. In this tutorial, we investigate the spectral and energy aware deployment of small-cells in heterogeneous networks and study several need oriented deployments of small-cells around the edge of the macrocell such that the small-cell base stations (SBSs) serve the cell-edge mobile users, thereby expanding the network coverage and capacity. Moreover, the reduction in energy consumption is achieved by considering fast power control in the uplink where the mobile users are transmitting with adaptive power to compensate the path loss, shadowing and fading. In this context, in order to quantify the gains of the HetSNets, we define and study the useful performance matrices such as area spectral efficiency which is defined as bps per Hz per macrocell area and area energy efficiency which is defined as the aggregate energy savings in the uplink per unit macrocell area. In order to calibrate the reduction in CO2 emissions of mobile communication networks, this tutorial quantifies the ecological and associated economic impacts of energy savings in under consideration deployments. Moreover, this tutorial also presents comprehensive end-to-end breakdown of total power consumption which includes backhaul, access and aggregation networks power consumption. Several simulation results are produced to demonstrate the spectral and energy improvements in comparison to existing and other traditional small-cell deployment strategies. In short, this tutorial will answer the following high level issues:
  • What are the Green competitive technologies to expand the cellular coverage?
  • What are the contributing factors to the downlink and uplink energy consumption of the wireless network (end-to-end breakdown)?
  • What are the ecological (in terms of carbon footprint) and economical (in terms of low carbon economy index) impacts of the future generations of wireless networks?

T8: Optimal Resource Allocation in Coordinated Multi-Cell Systems

The use of multiple antennas at base stations is a key component in the design of cellular communication systems that can meet high-capacity demands in the downlink. Under ideal conditions, the gain of employing multiple antennas is well-recognized: the data throughput increases linearly with the number of transmit antennas if the spatial dimension is utilized to serve many users in parallel. The practical performance of multi-cell systems is, however, limited by a variety of nonidealities, such as insufficient channel knowledge, high computational complexity, heterogeneous user conditions, limited backhaul capacity, transceiver hardware impairments, and the constrained level of coordination between base stations. This tutorial presents a general framework for joint modeling and analysis of different multi-cell scenarios, including clustered joint transmission, coordinated beamforming, interference channels, cognitive radio, and spectrum sharing between operators. The performance of multi-cell systems depends on the resource allocation; that is, how the time, power, frequency, and spatial resources are divided among users. A comprehensive characterization of problem categories in resource allocation is provided, along with the signal processing algorithms that solve them. The inherent difficulties are revealed: (a) the overwhelming spatial degrees-of-freedom created by the multitude of transmit antennas; and (b) the fundamental tradeoff between maximizing aggregate system throughput and maintaining user fairness. The tutorial provides a pragmatic foundation for resource allocation where the system utility metric can be selected to achieve practical feasibility. The structure of optimal resource allocation is also derived, in terms of beamforming parameterizations and optimal operating points. For clarity, the theory is first developed under perfect channel knowledge, unlimited backhaul capacity, and ideal transceiver hardware. These strict assumptions are then relaxed by providing an overview of recent advances that takes into account channel uncertainty, limited coordination, and transceiver impairments. Important connections to cognitive radio, multi-casting, and physical layer security are also described.

Complementary Tutorial: Entrepreneurship - First-Hand Account What Not To Do

You want it; governments want it; customers want it - so why is it so difficult to build your own company with viable products? This session explores some core lessons we have learned whilst growing our own companies, more than 10 in total. The talk is specifically tailored to research and innovation engineers, full of great ideas but doubtful about what's next. We will discuss what, apart from luck, you truly need to help to make your dream come true; which pitfalls to avoid; and how to scale meaningfully. We will also discuss the major differences between European and US approaches; between bootstrapping and venture capital support; etc. There will be ample opportunities for discussions.
