International Workshop on Device-to-Device Communication for Cellular and Wireless Networks
Co-located with IEEE ICC 2015, June 8th-12th, London, UK
This workshop will present technical contributions from researchers and engineers in both academia and industry on Device-to-Device (D2D) communication for Cellular and Wireless Networks. D2D communication is at an early stage of development in LTE-A and is expected to constitute an integral part of future 5G systems, with benefits including ubiquitous computing and communication, traffic offload from cellular networks, improved energy efficiency, extended coverage, peer-to-peer communication supporting public safety communications, social networks, massive M2M, etc. There are still many issues to be addressed before D2D communication is commercialized at a mass scale and its benefits fully exploited, including for example energy efficient device proximity detection, interference management, QoS management, security, multi-hop communication establishment, etc. The objective of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners to share the most recent technological advances and state-of-the-art results in the field of D2D communication for wireless mobile cellular networks.
