Call for Papers

Next Generation Radio Access Network provides a mechanism to interact with individual devices through radio-enabled advanced 5G network infrastructure. This robust network facilitates consumers with several types and one of them discusses a unique feature called Open RAN that discusses the interoperability foundation between remote and centralized units of 5G base stations manufactured by diverse partners. Open RAN aims to evolve the infrastructure through enhancing its foundation with virtualized network elements, open interfaces that enable intelligence in RAN. In addition, an ecosystem of new products is almost ready to streamline the underpinnings of the multi-vendor functionality with additional software features of interoperability and autonomous access through Intelligence.

The main objective of this workshop is to bring out the research problems with possible solutions in Open RAN with the deployment of its main objectives and standardization for advanced 5G and networks beyond it. For that purpose, we are targeting audience from both industry and academia to collect a variety of on-going research issues under a broad scope of Open-RAN. In addition, we aim to facilitate the participants with on-going functional tutorials as well as a deep understanding of business directions, revenue generation, and industrial trends of these technologies.

This workshop is seeking conceptual, empirical, and technical papers that would eventually offer novelty to following topics, but is not limited to them:

Open-RAN Infrastructure:

  • Next-generation heterogeneous radio access networks
  • Cell coordination evaluation in Open-RAN
  • Advanced waveform and channel coding through Open-RAN
  • Tier and layered division multiplexing in Open-RAN

Modeling and Analysis

  • Modeling and impact analysis of Open-RAN
  • Broadcasting through next-generation intelligent radio access networks
  • Theory and implementation for interoperable convergence of Open-RAN alliance devices

Intelligent ML/AI Evaluations

  • Open-RAN efficient signaling and control management techniques
  • 5G and networks beyond channel estimation techniques
  • Robust interoperable transceiver architecture
