PIERS2017 St Petersburg Focus/Special Sessions  
MIMO Systems and Techniques
Organized by Prof. Mario Marques da Silva (Universidade Autonoma de Lisboa)
Session's Information:
The use of multiple antennas at both the transmitter and receiver aims to improve performance or to increase symbol rate of systems, but it usually requires higher implementation complexity. The antenna spacing must be larger than the coherence distance to ensure independent fading across different antennas. Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) architectures can be used for combined transmit and receive diversity, for the parallel transmission of data or spatial multiplexing. When used for spatial multiplexing, MIMO technology promises high bit rates in a narrow bandwidth. Therefore, it is of high significance to spectrum users. In this case, MIMO system considers the transmission of different signals from each transmit element so that the receiving antenna array receives a superposition of all transmitted signals. All new ideas about how to improve performance, capacity and/or spectrum efficiency while keeping computational cost at an acceptable level are most welcome. Moreover, papers on MIMO applications, such as base station cooperation, coordinated multi-point transmission or multihop relay, are also welcome to this session.
