PIERS2016 Shanghai Focus/Special Sessions  
SC4: Antenna and EM Challenges in 5G Technologies
Organized by Prof. Guangli Yang (Shanghai University) and Prof. Zhinong Ying (Sony Mobile Communication AB)
Session's Information:
The 5G wireless system is estimated to arrive around 2020. The goals of 5G are to achieve 100 times higher data rates for connected people obtaining information from 100 times more connected machines. However, there is no clear roadmap to achieve such high-performance targets. Emerging technologies still need to be widely investigated. For instance, massive Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO), also known as large scale multiple antenna system, and millimeter wave (mm-wave) communications have demonstrated great potential to substantially increase the bandwidth, improve spectral efficiency as well as energy efficiency of wireless networks, and therefore have received considerable attention from both industry and academia in 5G research.
However, there are many open issues with regards of antennas and propagation that have not been well investigated. This call for papers aims to have papers with feasible and great potential antenna designs and modelling of radio propagations for massive MIMO at current cellular or millimetre-wave frequency bands for base station or user terminals. Potential topics include, but not limited to:

* Massive MIMO base station antenna array
* Massive MIMO terminal antenna array
* Mutual coupling effects for Massive MIMO antennas
* Massive MIMO radio propagation
* Hardware impairments in massive MIMO systems
* Experiments and measurements for massive MIMO
* Millimetre-wave communication system with Massive MIMO
* Radio propagation and channel modelling for mm-wave communications
* Mobile backhaul mm-wave communications
* High directivity beamforming mm-wave antenna array
* Multibeam adaptive mm-wave antenna array
* Reconfigurable large scale antenna array
* Multi-terminal mm-wave tracking technique
* Human being effects on mm-wave system
* Wireless charging (microwave power transmission)
* Digital beam-forming and massive MIMO
* Orbital angular momentum
* Electromagnetic field (EMF) and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC)
