SPS Chicago Chapter Meeting
Friday, December 8, 2017
Time & Meeting Location
10:00AM-1:00PM, SEO 1000
851 South Morgan Street, 10th Floor, Chicago

Speaker: Dr. Besma Smida
University of Illinois at Chicago

Topic: Massive MIMO and Advanced Signal Processing for 5G

Abstract: Signal processing for massive MIMO is at the core of the emerging fifth generation (5G) cellular communication systems. The goal of this meeting is to learn about and discuss the main physical layer aspects of massive MIMO and 5G from a signal processing viewpoint. We will listen to Prof. Besma Smida to shed light on the importance of massive MIMO research and new trends in 5G communications including full-duplex communications, spectrum efficiency, and energy efficiency. As a main component of the program, we will watch a video lecture delivered by Prof. Erik G. Larsson of Linköping University on Fundamentals of Massive MIMO, introducing the idea, discussing myths, realities, models, channel coherence issues, capacity bounding, analysis of single-cell and multi-cell systems, power control principles, as well as several case studies. The meeting features relevant discussions among the participants, and brainstorming opportunities for ideas that can contribute to advanced signal processing for massive MIMO.

***Refreshments will be provided***
