The development of the fifth-generation (5G) communication system is a key enabler to the vision of fully networked scenarios, in which machine-type communications, also known as Internet of Things (IoT), play a major role. Typical massive IoT applications involve sensors that report to the cloud on a regular basis. Their end-to-end cost must be low enough for the business case to make sense. Thus, the requirement here is for low-cost devices with low energy consumption and good coverage. At the other end, critical IoT applications will have very high demands for reliability, availability and low latency. Therefore, such ecosystem of different devices will demand different characteristics from the wireless communication systems, which may need to quickly switch between different, and sometimes conflicting, requirements. Thus, the aim of this workshop is to discuss a few issues in modern wireless communication systems, in which artificial intelligence, lightweight security mechanisms, and flexible infrastructure are required to a continuous evolution of the system.

Glauber Brante is a Professor of Wireless Communications at the Federal University of Technology, Curitiba, Brazil. He received the PhD degree in electrical engineering from the same University in 2013. In 2012, he was a Visiting Researcher with the Institute of Information and Communication Technologies, Electronics, and Applied Mathematics, Catholic University of Louvain, Belgium. His research interests include spatial diversity for wireless communications, energy efficiency, and physical layer security. He was a recipient of the Best PhD Thesis Award in electrical engineering in Brazil in 2014. He was a co-recipient of the 2016 Research Award from the Cuban Academy of Sciences. Since 2018, he has been serving as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Communications Letters, and as a Co-Editor-in-Chief for the Journal of Communication and Information Systems.
