Call for Papers: IEEE VTC Workshop on 5G Millimeter-Wave Channel Models
In conjunction with VTC2016-Fall, Montréal, Canada, 1821 September 2016

Both industry and the research community urgently require accurate characterization of wireless channels in the bands above 6 GHz. While there are many groups currently working on 5G channel measurements and modeling (e.g., METIS2020, COST1004, IEEE 802.11ay, ETSI mmWave SIG, NYU Wireless), many of these efforts are focused on developing channel models for specific wireless systems and may be short-lived or adapted once initial standards are put in place.

In response to this need, the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has recently begun to coordinate a 5G mmWave Channel Model Alliance of companies, academia, and government organizations that is supporting the development of more accurate, consistent, and predictive channel models.


This workshop will be a venue for all members of the 5G and cm/mmWave channel modeling communities to brainstorm and to identify emerging concepts, technologies, and analytical tools in this important area.

The workshop format will include keynote speakers and updates and outreach from Alliance working groups. It will conclude with a panel session. In order to accommodate a large number of submissions and improve interaction between participants, all submissions will be presented in poster format during the middle of the workshop.

The Workshop is accepting submissions by 29 May 2016. Please contact Dave Michelson for more information. Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
