Title: Cognitive Wireless Networks: Enabling 5G Mobile Communications

Abstract: Over the past decade, there have been a lot of research and development activities devoted to the cognitive communications and networking research. Through applying artificial intelligence approaches into communication system design, three main objectives are expected to achieve: smart resource utilization, autonomic network operation and intelligent service provisioning. This presentation will highlight the key ideas and technologies that could contribute to the development of 5G cellular networks, including, e.g., small cells, D2D communications, TV white spaces, carrier aggregation, and software-defined wireless network access.


    Ying-Chang Liang is a Principal Scientist in the Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R), Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), Singapore. He was a visiting scholar with the Department of Electrical Engineering, Stanford University, from Dec 2002 to Dec 2003, and taught graduate courses in National University of Singapore from 2004 C 2009. His research interest includes cognitive communications and networking, dynamic spectrum access, reconfigurable signal processing for broadband communications, information theory and statistical signal processing.
    Dr Liang was elected a Fellow of the IEEE in 2011 for contributions to cognitive radio communications, and has received five Best Paper Awards, including IEEE ComSoc APB outstanding paper award in 2012, and EURASIP Journal of Wireless Communications and Networking best paper award in 2010. He also received the Institute of Engineers Singapore (IES)s Prestigious Engineering Achievement Award in 2007, and the IEEE Standards Associations Certificate of Appreciation Award in 2011, for contributions to the development of IEEE 802.22, the first international standard based on cognitive radio technology. 
    Dr Liang currently serves as Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications C Cognitive Radio Series, and is on the editorial board of IEEE Signal Processing Magazine. He was an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications and IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology, and served as a Guest Editor of five special issues on emerging topics published in IEEE, EURASIP and Elsevier journals in the past years. He is a Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE Communications Society and IEEE Vehicular Technology Society, and is a member of the Board of Governors of the IEEE Asia-Pacific Wireless Communications Symposium.
