Workshop: Integration of Satellite Systems into Terrestrial 5G Networks (ST5G)

29 June 2020 // 3 July 2020

During the IEEE NetSoft Conference 2020, the i2CAT Foundation will organize the workshop ‘Integration of Satellite Systems into Terrestrial 5G Networks (ST5G)’, a session that will focus on new research results targeting the integration of the satellite communication systems into terrestrial 5G networks, as well systems operation, trials and descriptions and service provision. The goal is to provide a blend of systems oriented and general research papers.

People wishing to submit their papers to participate in the workshop should provide quality technical papers for the academic, researcher and professional engineer covering all aspects of satellite systems, radio access, cloud and 5G Edge computing resources, networks, components and services.

Topics of relevance include:

  • Use Cases and Architectures
    • Operators and Enterprise-based environments
    • Slices in Constrained Environments (IoT, Edge, etc.)
    • Innovative service and Application
    • Smart-X slice mobility
  • Satellite Systems
    • Satellite communication and broadcast systems
    • Satellite networks and networking
    • Hybrid systems
  • Physical Layer Design and Hardware Aspects
    • Advanced Radio Elements for 5G Communications
    • Advanced Satellite Systems for 5G Communications
  • Network Softwarization, Management and Orchestration
    • Virtualization of Satellite and terrestrial and radio Elements
    • Software Defined Networking for Converged Technologies
    • Common operations and API
    • Inter- and intra-slice Interactions
    • Lifecycle Management and Orchestration
    • High Availability and Reliability Techniques
  • Standardization Trends and Activities
    • Status and progresses in 3GPP/ETSI/IETF/5GAA and other SDOs
