Toward a New Era of Radio Access Technologies for Beyond 5G and 6G

Abstract

In the near future, the number of devices connected to communication networks is expected to dramatically increase. To provide connectivity to this massive number of devices and to fulfill their quality of service (QoS) requirements, there is an inevitable need for new mobile communications systems with significantly enhanced capabilities. This is the primary driving force of the fifth generation and beyond (B5G)/ sixth generation (6G) wireless systems.

In the previous communication systems and existing LTE/LTE-Advanced systems, multiple access (MA) techniques such as timed division multiple access (TDMA), frequency division multiple access (FDMA), and orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA) were used. However, in recent years, researchers have moved towards breaking the orthogonality, thereby finding ways of user multiplexing over the same resource block (RB). Hence, a novel concept of non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) was introduced to handle the huge connectivity concerns of 5G. NOMA as a multiple access scheme and several pulse-shaping techniques have been presented by researchers to increase systems’ spectral efficiency. Further, for future communications, some state-of-the-art techniques such as index modulation need to be discovered to develop compatible systems for B5G.

This talk shall cover modern radio access technologies (RATs) that have the potential to make their place in the next generation networks.

Scheduling issues in autonomous wireless sensors with real-time capabilities

Abstract

Many wireless sensors that may be deployed in wide areas and possibly unattainable places require a complete autonomy. Such systems should be designed to function perpetually without any human intervention because either costly or impractical. As a consequence, energy harvesting (EH) technology has been an area of rapid development during the last decade. EH sensors need to be provided with specific real-time scheduling and power management facilities. Most of the tasks which run in those devices are requested to adhere to strict timing constraints in terms of deadlines. Neither the greedy real-time scheduler Earliest Deadline First nor FIFO can ensure efficient energy aware scheduling.

This keynote addresses state of the art as well as our findings in real-time scheduling and processor activity management for energy harvesting small electronic devices including wireless sensors.

Biography

Maryline Chetto is currently a full professor in computer engineering with the Institute of Technology of the University of Nantes, France. She received the degree of Docteur de 3ème cycle in control engineering and the degree of Habilitée à Diriger des Recherches in Computer Science from the University of Nantes, France, in 1984 and 1993, respectively. From 1984 to 1985, she held the position of Assistant professor of Computer Science at the University of Rennes, while her research was with the Institut de Recherche en Informatique et Systèmes Aléatoires (IRISA), Rennes. In 1986, she returned to Nantes and has been from 2002 a full professor with the University of Nantes. She is conducting her research at Laboratoire des Sciences du Numérique de Nantes (LS2N) in the Real Time System group.
Her current research has been focused on studying and developing solutions for scheduling, Fault-tolerance and Dynamic Power Management in real time embedded applications. She is now studying the issue of scheduling tasks under real-time constraints in a device such as sensor node that uses renewable energy to supply it. She has more than 150 papers published in international journals and conferences. She was the editor of the books Real-time Systems Scheduling (Elsevier, 2014) with volume 1 Fundamentals and Volume 2 Focusses. She was the co-author of the book Energy Autonomy of real-time systems (Elsevier, 2016). Recently, she was general chair of the 2020 IEEE International Conference on Green Computing and Communications (GreenCom-2020). Since 2011, she was elected member of the French National Council for Universities.

IoT Security Risk Overview

Abstract

The market for Internet of Things (IoT) products and services has grown rapidly. It has been predicted that the deployment of these IoT applications will grow exponentially in the near future. However, the rapid growth of the IoT brings new security risks and potentially opens systems and networks to new attacks. This talk will be opened by discussing the success story of IoT implementation in the Netherland and Indonesia, followed by an overview of possible attack scenarios and security risks, an finally it will be closed by discussing the direction of research opportunity in the IoT security domain.
