2008 International Workshop on 4G WiMAX System

August 25th ~ 27th, 2008, Hangzhou, China

2008 International Workshop on 4G WiMAX System will be held in conjunction with the International Conference on Communications and Networking in China (CHINACOM 2008) on August 25th ~ 27th, 2008, in Hangzhou, China. Accepted and presented papers will be included in the conference Proceedings, IEEE XPlore, and Engineering Index.

In recent few years, the emergence of Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) has become a key Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) technology for Wireless Metropolitan Area Networks (Wireless MAN). Recently, significant effort has been dedicated within the IEEE standard body to develop new 802.16j and 802.16m amendments in order to support multihop relay

operation, and to meet the requirements of 4G IMT-Advanced mobile networks. The multiple hop nature of the IEEE 802.16j entails numerous design challenges, ranging from OFDMA frame structure design to traffic forwarding and path management.  Moreover, in order to support 1 Gbit/s data rate in low mobility applications and 100 Mbit/s in high-speed mobility applications aimed at by 4G, a wide spectrum of physical layer and Medium Access Control (MAC) layer innovations need to be introduced.  Other issues such as regulation, spectrum management, application innovation and economic model for WiMAX deployment for 4G all deserve thorough discussion and investigation.

This workshop intends to cover all key aspects related to the current and the next generation WiMAX system and network for 4G services. It will bring together engineers, researchers and students to present cutting-edge technologies, and describe work in progress at all layers of the protocol stack, to reflect the latest advances in the state-of-the-art in design, modeling, simulation, and applications of WiMAX.
