The School on Beyond 5G Networks operating in the Millimetre Wavebands enabled by Joint Analogue-digital Signal Processing will be held at the Instituto de Telecomunicações, Instituto Superior Técnico (Alameda Campus) in the framework of VTS Portugal Chapter and COST CA15104 IRACON.
These 4.5 days training period will address recent advances in antennas, RF, signal and multi-antenna processing, making use of information theoretic concepts, and designing the necessary modulation and coding schemes as well as spectrum management strategies, to achieve implementable Massive Antenna Array Systems (MAAS) technologies at mmW frequencies, with the ultimate goal of providing mobile communication systems that approach 1 Tbit/s data rate on a per link basis.
Business aspects, cost/revenue trade-off, standardization, public policies for spectrum sharing, entrepreneurship and IPR protection will also be central parts of the training. The event also includes training on research, as it foresees a poster session that will allow the students to share their recent findings ideas with their colleagues and tutors, who will give feedback, suggestions. Academic vision will be complemented by industry/services experience and “hands-on” part of the training (simulation, programming).
