The NSF Workshop on Low-Latency Wireless Random-Access was held at MIT on Thursday, November 2 and Friday, November 3, 2017. Speakers came from all over the US and from Europe, Israel and Singapore. They covered many topics on “preparing the next generation network, 5G, for the internet of things.” [See MIT News Article by G. Friar.]
The workshop was attended by over 80 people. While about half were MIT faculty, students and alumni, the other participants included people from both industry and other universities — some from as far away as North Carolina, California, Canada and Australia.
The 12 speakers on Thursday covered topics on IOT in Industry and Systems, on the Reliability in multiple-access communication and on Information Theory. On Friday, there were 11 speakers who spoke on Low-Latency communications, more on Information Theory, and on Massive multiple-access. Here is a link to a Summary of Talks.
