Organized in conjunction with 2020
Recent advances in 5G network optimizations have revolutionized the way humans, smart things, and engineered systems interact and exchange information. The algorithms and tools that are needed to build applications for processing gigabyte, terabyte, or petabyte-sized 5G networks and communications are the major contributors to this area and will fuel the realization of this new, globally interconnected cyber-world. Yet, the success, prosperity, and advancement of 5G networking and communication systems strongly depend on the optimization algorithms as well as the networking techniques being used. 5G has been used in modern disciplines to achieve better networking and communication performance and to serve as a platform for cyber applications. Its secure design for supporting a faster and reliable computing and communication system and create new foundations for our socio-economic systems by efficiently establishing connections among people and machines, reducing cost, and increasing utilization of resources. On one hand, 5G will play an important role for communication in such emerging fields as Internet of Things, Cyber Physical Systems, edge computing, social networking, crowdsourcing and next generation wireless communications, and even more other fields. On the other hand, its advance should be further evolved in terms of scalability, efficiency, flexibility, availability and high dependability. While these technologies offer a lot of new possibilities, we need to develop novel tools that will constitute the heart of a much-needed science of 5G networking and communication. The goal of this workshop is to bring together internationally leading academic and industrial researchers in an effort to identify and discuss the major technical challenges and recent results aimed at addressing all aspects of 5G networking and communications.
