SmartCom 2017 -The 4th International Workshop on Smart Wireless Communications-
SmartCom 2017 is organized by IEICE Technical Committee on Smart Radio (SR), IEICE Technical Committee on Short Range Wireless Communications (SRW) and IEICE Technical Committee on Radio Communication Systems (RCS).


SmartCom 2017 is a joint workshop between Europe and Japan on smart wireless communications, it covers radio technologies, spectrum management, wireless networks, communication theory, flexible hardware, and so on. Due to the recent advancement of wireless technology, mobile terminal and application, ubiquitous connectivity is expected in the future. However, this also leads to the tremendous growth of wireless data traffic, demanding higher data rates. Therefore, smart communication technologies to address this data demand are urgently required to sustain future wireless world. In this workshop, we discuss the solutions targeting not only near future but also years beyond 2020, e.g., 5G, beyond 5G and IoT (Internet of things). Expected candidate solutions include small cells, heterogeneous networks including microwave/millimeter wave devices, dynamic spectrum management, etc. The organizing committee wishes the workshop to provide a great opportunity for discussing future wireless world. It also represents a great opportunity for networking such as for initiating cooperative research and joint proposals.
