Experimentation Meets Platforms: A Survey of macro trends in mobile communication research and its impact on future testbed development
“Softwarization” is often referred to as a general paradigm shift in telecom architecture from “boxes” to “functions”, and from “protocols” to “APIs”. This has profound impact on research testbed platform architecture and its components. The panel begins with exploration of such fundamental advances at all layers and by delving into investigations of the research infrastructures suitable for hosting at-scale experimentation in future mobile architectures, services, and applications, and use of such infrastructures for experimental research using practical examples. The distillation of the lessons learned above are laid out as requirements for future at-scale platforms.
The panelists represent a global view of efforts underway to implement platforms for experimenting on 5G and Beyond Technologies across radio, network and compute to be built on top of convergent RF/network/IT infrastructure to provide well defined abstractions and modularity to end users (eg. researchers, developers and testers).
Questions to Explore
1. What are the key wireless challenges for the future
2. Regarding these challenges, where could a test platform better support the discovery process
3. How can we best balance very advanced test platforms for core wireless technologies and more integrated verticals (service driven) platforms
4. Data management and security plan, how to get started?
5. Reproducability and Repeatability of research. Is it a must?
6. Discussion of Sustainability of the platforms

The 5G dream becomes real – will it keep its promises?
Over the past couple of years 5G has been in the headlines globally for many conferences, new projects and naturally also as element in industrial strategies, visions and specific implementation plans. This has raised the expectations of what 5G will deliver. Time has come for 5G, so will it deliver the promises that have been made?
IEEE ICC 2019 will be held in Shanghai, China, which now ranks as the top tech innovation international hub, according to a survey by KPMG. This internationally friendly city is a hub of innovation attracting major corporations from around the world as well as blossoming into a startup heaven.
The 17th International Symposium on Modeling and Optimization in Mobile, Ad Hoc and Wireless Networks (WiOpt 2019) will take place from June 04 to 06 , 2019 in Avignon, France.
WoWMoM 2019 will offer a vibrant technical program including paper presentations, keynote speeches, hot-topic panel sessions, demonstrations, and a PhD forum. We plan to hold several workshops in conjunction with the symposium. All papers (regular, workshops, demo, PhD forum) will be included and indexed in the IEEE Digital Library (IEEE Xplore), showing their affiliation with IEEE WoWMoM. Last but not least, as in the WoWMoM tradition, high quality social events, including a welcome reception and a gala dinner will be organized.

EuCNC 2019 is the 28th edition of a successful series of a conference in the field of telecommunications, sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society and the European Association for Signal Processing, and supported by the European Commission. This conference is one of the most prominent communications and networking conferences in Europe, which efficiently brings together cutting-edge research and world-renown industries and businesses. EuCNC attracts more than 600 delegates each year and an exhibition space of more than 1,500 m2. The conference focuses on various aspects of 5G communications systems and networks, including cloud and virtualisation solutions, management technologies, and vertical application areas. It targets to bring together researchers from all over the world to present the latest research results, and it is one of the main venues for demonstrating the results of research projects, especially from successive European R&D programmes co-financed by the European Commission.
EuCNC 2019 will be co-located with the Global 5G Event, which brings together the world 5G industrial associations: 5G-IA, IMT-2020, 5G-Forum, 5G-MF, 5G-Brasil and 5G-Americas.

Empowering Transatlantic Platforms for Advance Wireless Research; a look at Pan-European end-to-end site facilities and vertical trials for 5G and their collaboration with NSF PAWR platforms.
MOTIVATION & BACKGROUND
The European Commission has created the CSA EMPOWER in order to foster the collaboration between Europe and USA on Advance Wireless Platforms, whichinclude ICT-17 End-to-End 5G platforms and NSF PAWR projects.The overarching aim of EMPOWER is to reinforce the cooperation between the EU and the US towards establishing a collaborative transatlantic community on the new connectivity frontiers beyond 5G with the ambition to accelerate the joint development of the associated advanced wireless platforms.
EMPOWER follows and builds on the recurrent dialogue between the EU and the US regarding collaboration for Advanced Wireless Platforms as presented in the “Report from the EU/US Future Networks Workshop”, dated November 11, 2017. EMPOWER targets the creation of a joint EU-US advanced wireless ecosystem for
This workshop main objective is to put in contact key persons on Europe and USA to start a track record of collaborations and to discuss possible joint activities and evolution of the wireless platforms at both sides of the Atlantic towards beyond 5G technologies. In addition, the ongoing work of the three ICT-17-2018 projects and their NSF PAWR counterparts will be presented. Each of these projects will present the services provided by their projects, the infrastructure available at this stage and their roadmap.
Finally, time will be devoted to understand the requirements from possible users of the sites, in terms of equipment and services. The workshop will be mainly driven by ICT-17 and NSF PAWR representatives, although projects planning to use the wireless platforms, such as ICT-19 winning consortiums and projects with already established experience on collaboration with USA such as 5GinFire and EuWireless, will also be invited.
