The current generation of mobile networks continues to transform the way people communicate and access information. To meet the gigantic capacity challenge for wireless networks, a new generation of mobile networks, namely 5G is in its formative phase. 5G provides a clean slate to researchers and network designers to provide universal internet access, the problem that has not been addressed in the previous generation of mobile networks. Although, the exact form of 5G will emerge after 2020, yet it has expected to provide extremely high data rates, massive connectivity, high speed, latency less than 1 millisecond and much more. However, there is some universal coverage gap in the 5G effort that has to be addressed. In order to overcome these hurdles, new concept and theories are required. The goal of this workshop is to provide a comprehensive view about 5G and to bring collaborators, researchers and scholars from all over the world to present their research proposed for 5G in global network provisioning. The participants will get in touch with a lot of academic researchers and will have the opportunity to discuss their viewpoint, results and findings. The topics of the workshop include, but are not limited to:

  • D2D caching

  • Ultra-densification

  • Small cell and heterogeneous networks

  • Flexible numerology to support diverse applications for 5G

  • Green and soft networking

  • Waveform design for 5G

  • Non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) schemes

  • IOT support by designing and implementation of wireless caching

  • mmWave communications and massive MIMO

  • Energy harvesting and wireless power transfer

  • Traffic routing and data catering for onward terrestrial transmissions

  • Applications, deployments, test-beds ­and experimental experience for 5G universal access

  • Satellite and dynamic networks

  • Machine-to-machine communications

  • User centric 5G design and game theoretic approaches

  • Backhaul and fronthaul transmissions for 5G

  • Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) and drones for backhaul communications

  • Software defined networking in 5G including control-data plane separation architectures

  • UAVs for backhaul and access network including split frameworks

  • UAVs for device centric communication

  • Optimization of energy efficiency and spectral efficiency for user-centric networks

  • Mobility management for 5G
