Special Session on MIMO Technologies for Beyond 5G and Towards 6G

The increasing reliance of society on wireless communications, along with the emergence of disruptive applications (e.g. smart cities, digital economy and agriculture, and e-health) has stipulated the development of the 5G wireless networks. Recently, the first version of 5G New Radio (NR) with massive MIMO was standardized by 3GPP and the corresponding commercial networks took place in 2018. Though this first 5G NR is expected to offer very high data throughput, communication reliability, and network connectivity, there are still many technical challenges in relation to the MIMO technologies of this 5G NR that are not satisfactorily addressed in previous studies....

Special Session on Evolved Technologies for the Future Internet of Things

The existing Internet has inconspicuously transformed into the Internet of Things (IoT) with an estimated more than ten of billions of connected IoT devices in 2018. The existence of IoT devices, each of which is a tiny smart object, enables a plethora of useful services for improving the human's quality of life. However, it has challenged the Internet to be evolved to to adapt to the new requirements of IoT services excellently. In the next few years, the Internet of Things is envisioned to leverage the global interconnection as well as the fifth generation of mobile networks (5G) and beyond...
