演講主題：Accessing From the Sky: UAV Communications for 5G and Beyond
The integration of the dramatically increasing volume of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or drones into the future 5G and beyond wireless networks calls for a paradigm shift on the design of traditional cellular systems for terrestrial-only communications. In particular, how to realize cellular-connected UAV communications and UAV-assisted terrestrial communications are both practically appealing as well as challenging, due to the high altitude and high mobility of UAVs, the unique channel characteristics of UAV-ground links, the stringent constraints imposed by the size, weight and power (SWAP) limitations of UAVs, as well as the new degree of freedom by exploiting UAV placement/trajectory and communication co-design. Substantial research efforts from both academia and industry have been devoted to advancing this exciting new field, with remarkable progress made in the past couple of years. In this talk, we will provide a comprehensive overview of the state-of-the-art results on UAV-cellular integration, with a particular emphasis placed on the latest research findings on aerial-ground interference management and trajectory optimization in UAV communications. Open challenges and promising directions for future research will be highlighted.

演講主題：Channel Hopping Mechanisms in Cognitive Radio Networks via Relay
演講時間：2020年1月16日 10:30~11:05 (7F義大演講廳)
The demand of spectral resources will grow tremendously in order to support the huge number of mobile devices in 5G wireless systems. Cognitive radio (CR) becomes an attractive technology to alleviate the spectrum scarcity and efficiency problems. Channel hopping (CH) is a representative technique in the rendezvous processes that can enhance spectral efficiency and is robust against interference in cognitive radio networks. In this talk, the fundamentals of CH sequence designs in CR ad hoc networks are overviewed, including basic definitions, operating modes, and design criteria and metrics. The desirable characteristics of CH sequences that support low media-access latency, large cardinality, and media-access fairness for cognitive radio ad hoc networks (CRAHNs) are outlined. Due to the limitation of transmission range of the two devices in CRAHNs, there is the need for intermediate node(s) to relay if the distance between them are too far away to rendezvous to each other directly. Some technical issues in such a cognitive radio networks via relay are discussed.

演講主題：VR Streaming for 5G and Beyond
Due to the ability of bringing immersive experiences promised to users, Virtuality Reality (VR) has generated great interests to enable a new way of working, communication and entertainment. Ideally, VR applications should be provided through wireless mobile head-mounted displays (HMDs), so as to be usable anytime and anywhere with low cost. However in practice, HMDs have very limited computational capacity and battery lifetime to ensure high frame rates and low motion-to-photon latency when rendering high-resolution VR frames locally. Meanwhile, the current wireless technologies do not promise to give VR videos with ultra high bitrates and very low delay when the frames are rendered at the servers and projected to the HMDs via wireless links. As a result, their VR performance is much lower than that of their counterparts being tethered to high-performance servers. A major challenge is how to efficiently transmit these computational-intensive VR videos to bandwidth-constrained wireless VR HMDs at acceptable quality levels given their high bitrate and low latency requirements. With the emerging 5G networks, the new radio access and mobile edge computing (MEC) promise to boost transmission rates and greatly reduce network latency by deploying applications at the network edge closer to users, which provides an opportunity for performance improvement of cloud VR applications. In this talk, some recent advances in wireless VR streaming will be overviewed. The challenges and opportunities of edge computing, caching, and communications for wireless VR will be addressed. Some epxeriences we learn from the on-going project on VR healthcare for 5G and Beyond sponsored by the MOST B5G/6G program will be shared.

演講主題：Radio Resource Allocation in the Beyond 5G Era: Promises of Deep Learning and Deep Reinforcement Learning
演講時間：2020年1月17日 09:00~10:00 (義大7F演講廳)
Optimal resource allocation is a fundamental challenge for dense and heterogeneous wireless networks with massive wireless connections. Because of the non-convex nature of the optimization problems, often it is computationally demanding to obtain the optimal resource allocation. Machine learning, especially Deep learning (DL), is a powerful tool where a multi-layer neural network can be trained to model a resource management algorithm using network data. Therefore, resource allocation decisions can be obtained without intensive online computations which would be required otherwise for the solution of resource allocation problems. Recently, deep reinforcement learning (DRL) has emerged as a promising technique in solving non-convex optimization problems. Unlike deep learning (DL), DRL does not require any optimal/near-optimal training dataset which is either unavailable or computationally expensive in generating synthetic data. In this talk, I shall present a novel centralized DRL-based downlink power allocation scheme for a multi-cell system intending to maximize the total network throughput. Specifically, I shall discuss a deep Q-learning (DQL) approach to achieve near-optimal power allocation policy. I shall present some simulation results to compare the proposed DRL-based power allocation scheme with the conventional schemes in a multi-cell scenario.

演講主題：Engineering in Post-Moore Electronic Communication: a revelation of ≥5G base station at mmWave
The presentation briefly discusses the world-leading role of TSMC’s foundry service and its impact on the electronic communication. What roles of microwave and antenna engineering may play in the forthcoming 5G and future communication systems? Are these roles important or just sidelines? How the combination of microwave engineering and antenna engineering, called electromagnetic engineering, may shape the landscape of the on-going and future electronic communication module or system using hundreds and thousands of microchips made by semiconductor foundries? This talk applies an example of designing a new mmWave (millimeter-wave) 5G base station to illustrate viable pathways to green communication. The base station employs beamspace Massive MIMO dictated by the proposed quasi-optical lens with transceiver MMICs distributed on the focal plane in close proximity within the point spread of the lens, followed by a switching matrix module arbitrarily connecting p baseband units and n sets of transceivers. Ray-tracing diagrams explain the retro-directive channel propagation characteristics of the proposed quasi-optical beamforming MIMO, demonstrating the returned signals from a remote terminal under interrogation will reach to the nearby receivers in the focal plane, and pointing to a promising solution to green communication at more than one order of magnitude improvement in energy consumption for a particular case study. The presentation concludes that the electromagnetic engineering may transform the outlook of the RF microchips in the upcoming electronic communication systems.

Convergence of Communications for Wide Area Networks (WANs), from 2G to 4G LTE, is first reviewed. We identify and illustrate the packaging solutions in realizing state-of-the-art WAN devices.
