Call for Papers
The goal of 5GArch workshop is to expose latest insights from industry
and academia on 5G architecture design, a quickly growing topic. Indeed,
over the last couple of years different trends emerged calling for a
rethinking of the current 4G architecture, which does not scale to the
relentless traffic demand, signaling overhead, etc. In particular, from a
technology perspective, the emergence of virtualization at the core
network and (partly) at the radio access network is seen as crucial going
beyond 4G networks. Also the increase in small cell base station density
and the number of carrier components is set to follow its course spanning
both microwave and milimeterwave spectrum. The idea of separation
between data and control (a.k.a. Phantom Cell-like) and between
downlink and uplink due to traffic asymmetry imbalance is gaining
significant grounds. In addition, the use of distributed content caching in
different parts of the network (EPC/RAN/edge) is considered as one of
the most disruptive paradigms in 5G from both an architectural and edge
intelligence point of view. From a service perspective, the emerging
importance of new services requiring a very low latency or/and a very
high reliability, coupled with the prevalence of internet of things services
which cannot be enabled by today’s architecture, are crucial. All these
aspects mandate a clean-slate approach to tackling the increasingly
complex problems.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
 Architectural enablers for new services, e.g. low latency, high
reliability, machine type communication
 Native inclusion of small cells
 Native inclusion of aggregation, with licensed and unlicensed
spectrum
 Native inclusion of alien systems such as Wifi
 Smart content caching and content distribution
 Separation between data and control
 Separation between downlink and uplink, dual connectivity
 Architectural enablers forD2D communications
 multi-RAT/tier/carrier integration
 C-RAN, SDN, NFV
The workshop accepts only novel, previously unpublished papers. All
submissions should be written in English with a maximum paper length of
6 printed pages (10-point font) including figures. EDAS link for

Keynote Speakers
The workshop 5GArch will feature Dr. Amitava Ghosh (Director NOKIA,
USA) and Professor Robert W. Heath Jr. (The University of Texas at
Austin, USA).
