题目：SKY IS THE LIMIT: FLYING ACCESS NETWORKS FOR BEYOND 5G
摘要: The use of flying robots carrying radio transceiver equipment is the new promising frontier in our quest towards ever more flexible, adaptable and spectrally efficient wireless networks. Beyond obvious challenges within the regulatory, control and navigation, and operational domains, the deployment of autonomous flying radio access network (Fly-RANs) come with a number of exciting new research problems. Interestingly, these lie at the cross-roads between machine learning, signal processing and communication design. In this talk we will present approaches for the efficient exploitation of flying mobile relays and illustrate their possible use in diverse problems such as mobile capacity/coverage extension, as well as radio-based city map reconstruction.
David Gesbert (IEEE Fellow) is Professor and Head of the Communication Systems Department, EURECOM, in Sophia-Antipolis, France. He obtained the Ph.D degree from EcoleNationaleSuperieure des Telecommunications, France, in 1997. From 1997 to 1999 he has been with the Information Systems Laboratory, Stanford University. He was then a founding engineer of Iospan Wireless Inc, a Stanford spin off pioneering MIMO-OFDM (now Intel). Before joining EURECOM in 2004, he has been with the Department of Informatics, University of Oslo as an adjunct professor. D. Gesbert has published about 270 papers and 27 patents, some of them winning the 20015 IEEE Best Tutorial Paper Award (Communications Society), 2012 SPS Signal Processing Magazine Best Paper Award, 2004 IEEE Best Tutorial Paper Award (Communications Society), 2005 Young Author Best Paper Award for Signal Proc. Society journals, and paper awards at conferences 2011 IEEE SPAWC, 2004 ACM MSWiM. He was a Technical Program Co-chair for ICC2017 in Paris and WSA2017 in Berlin. He was named in the 2014 Thomson-Reuters List of Highly Cited Researchers in Computer Science. Since 2015, he holds the ERC Advanced grant "PERFUME" on the topic of smart device Communications in future wireless networks.
D. Gesbert was a co-editor of several special issues on wireless networks and communications theory, for JSAC (2003, 2007, 2009), EURASIP Journal on Applied Signal Processing (2004, 2007), Wireless Communications Magazine (2006). He served on the IEEE Signal Processing for Communications Technical Committee, 2003-2008. He was an associate editor for IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications and the EURASIP Journal on Wireless Communications and Networking. He serves on the Scientific Boards of EURECOM and the UCN (User Centric Networking) Laboratory of Excellence (LABEX) in France. He co-authored the book “Space time wireless communications: From parameter estimation to MIMO systems”, Cambridge Press, 2006. He held visiting professor positions in KTH (2014) and TU Munich (2016), and BUPT (Beijing, 2017.)
