The International School on Small Cells and 5G will take place on January, 23-24th 2015 in Tunis, Tunisia!.

The International School on Small Cells and 5G (ISSC5G) is the second school organized by MEDIATRON Lab. from the High School of Communications of Tunis (Sup’Com) in Tunisia. This workshop follows on the success of the first International Cloud Computing School held on December 2013. ISSC5G is expected to bring together academic and industrial researchers in an effort to identify and discuss the major technical challenges and recent results related to small cell networks.  In order to cope with the ever growing demand for high data rate services, Small Cell Network (SCN) appeared as a promising paradigm bringing new network topology. The use of SCNs is envisioned to enable next 5G systems to provide high data rates, allow offloading traffic from the macro cell and offer dedicated capacity to homes, enterprises, or urban hotspots. However, the deployment of small cells in realistic environments faces several technical challenges which will be addressed during this school. Besides, a number of emerging topics are of special importance to the next 5G networks such as Software Defined Networks (SDN), network virtualization, D2D communications, Cloud Radio Access Networks (Cloud-RAN), mmWaves networks… Our purpose is to examine the latest developments and advances in these salient issues.


Important: A participation certificate will be delivered at the end of the school.
