Invited Talk 1: “5G Mobile Communications for 2020 and Beyond - Vision and Key Enabling Technologies”
Dr. Wonil Roh, Vice President & Head of Advanced Communications Lab, Samsung Electronics

The race to search for innovative solutions to enable the Next Generation Mobile Communications (5G era) has recently begun worldwide. In early 2013, the European Commission announced that it would invest €50 million in 2013 for 5G research in multiple projects such as METIS, quickly followed by the formation of the Chinese Government-led IMT-2020 Promotion Group in February 2013, the initiation of the Korean Government-led 5G Forum in May 2013, and the formation of 2020 and Beyond Ad-hoc within ARIB (Association of Radio Industries and Businesses), Japan, in October, 2013. While the standardization of 5G specifications in standards bodies such as the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) and the formal ratification of 5G standards by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) are still several years away, many share the vision of targeting 2020 for the initial commercialization of 5G cellular with drastically enhanced user experience. This talk presents the vision, requirements, and the key technologies envisaged for the 5G mobile communications in 2020 and beyond era. The requirements emerged for the 5G era include massive capacity with order of magnitude data rate improvement as well as uniform Gbps experience, reduced latency for delay sensitive services, massive connectivity supporting innumerable simultaneous connections, and all these demands with energy efficient as well as cost effective solutions. The talk will put forth a few key technologies ranging from air technologies and network design to services along with the recent R&D achievements proving the feasibility of the proposed technologies and showing a bright prospect of 5G.
Dr. Roh is currently a Vice President and Head of Advanced Communications Lab at Samsung Electronics Corp in Korea, responsible for research of next generation mobile communications technologies.

Invited Talk 3: “Smart Devices toward 5G”
Dr. Minseok Oh, Vice President, LG Electronics

When looking back on our daily lives over last 15 years, we can observe circulation of synergy effect between new user experience and better wireless system. This interaction will be accelerated toward 5G era in 2020 and beyond. In the context of this paradigm, 5G system must overcome challenges on explosive increase of mobile traffic and the huge numbers of connected devices. On the other hand, 5G system can play a role to enrich disruptive user experiences which is represented by Hyper Broadband, Smart Networking, Mobile Cloud, and Real-time Interaction. These advanced user experiences will be powered by 5G smart device technology as the result of innovation in terms of data rate, networking, Optimization, and latency. In this talk, I presents concept of 5G smart devices and discuss some enabling technologies in order to realize the disruptive user experiences.
Dr. Minseok Oh is a Research Fellow and Head of 5G R&D program in LG Electronics. He received M.S. and Ph.D. from University of Surrey in 1996 and 2000, respectively. The focus of his research is to explore and provide future wireless technologies for global standards. He is currently leading LG’s research projects for 5G Mobile and Wireless system including Wi-Fi. Prior to current role, he has led 4G standards activities such as LTE/LTE-Advanced and WiMAX-Advanced, and successfully demonstrated world-first handset, in 3GSM WC 2007, based on early LTE MIMO-OFDM technology. Currently he is a Wi-Fi Alliance Board member and also serves as Chair of Wireless Mobile Technical Committee in TTA.
