2015 Workshop on Coding Techniques for 5G Networks (5GCodes)

Collocated with European Wireless 2015 in Budapest, Hungary

Technical sponsorship: IEEE Communications Society

Scope of the Workshop

This workshop brings together different techniques in the growing research area of 5G communications with a focus on the error correcting and erasure correcting codes necessary to support the various services of 5G networks. 5G systems shall bring a more holistic view on the storage and transport of the data within the network in order to address a series of key future challenges, including, extremely low delay (in the order of milliseconds), massive number of connected (heterogeneous) devices and traffic loads. In the light of 5G communications, both the requirements and potential of codes are growing. The goal of codes in 5G is not only to provide reliability to transmitted data, but it should also be compatible with the natural heterogeneity of the connected systems, the stringent delay requirements of some applications, and even storage systems. Thus, the workshop aims to provide a cutting-edge venue for discussing coding theory and its applications to 5G networks at different levels of the network stack, including, physical layer techniques, packet-level coding techniques (e.g., network coding),and even codes for more efficient caching and storage in 5G networks.
