 1st Workshop on Fog Computing-Based Radio Access Networks for 5G (F-RAN 5G)


Compared with the fourth generation (4G) wireless communication system, the network capacity of the fifth generation (5G) wireless communication system is required to increase by a factor of at least 1000. To achieve this target, a paradigm of fog computing-based radio access networks (F-RANs) has emerged as a promising evolution path for 5G network architecture. By taking full advantages of distributed caching and centralized processing, F-RANs provide great flexibility to satisfy quality-of-service requirements of various 5G scenarios, such as real-time high-definition video streams and ubiquitous Internet-of-things (IoT) applications. Therefore, F-RAN has become a research hotspot, and draws a lot of attention from both academia and industry.

The  1st  workshop  on  F-RANs  will  be  held  in  Chongqing,  China,  as  a  part  of  10th  EAI International Conference on Mobile Multimedia Communications. The workshop aims to bring academic researchers and industry developers together, to share and discuss recent advances in F-RANs for 5G networks. High technical quality papers will be presented at the workshop, and topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Information-theoretic analysis for F-RANs
  • Network architecture and protocol design for 5G F-RANs
  • Computing, communication, caching, and control (4C) for F-RANs
  • Advanced PHY and MAC technologies for F-RANs
  • Resource management and cross-layer design for F-RANs
  • Fronthaul/backhaul design for F-RANs
  • Software defined F-RANs and network slicing for 5G
  • Network security for F-RANs
  • Prototype and test-bed for F-RANs
