In 2020, mobile and wireless traffic volume is expected to increase thousand-fold over 2010 figures. Moreover, an increase in the number of wirelessly connected devices to count in the tens of billions will have a profound impact on society. Massive machine communication, forming the basis for the Internet of Things, will make our everyday life more efficient, comfortable and safer, through a wide range of applications as, e.g., traffic safety and medical services. The variety of applications and traffic types originating from or reaching mobile, WLAN, and sensor networks, will be significantly larger than today, and will result in more diverse requirements on services, devices and networks.


To meet the demands beyond 2020, a system that broadens the usability of today’s wireless networks is needed. Fundamentally new concepts and design approaches are needed, and these must be integrated into systems that provide the necessary flexibility, versatility and scalability at low cost and low energy dissipation. This workshop presents a forum for researchers and industry to meet, share views and exchange ideas on needs, possibilities and challenges in next generation global mobile and wireless communication systems.
