Inclusive Radio Communication Networks for 5G and beyond (IRACON)
English

Radio Communications have become one of the pillars on which our Society relies for performing many daily tasks. Today, the number of connected devices is increasing exponentially, reflecting not only enthusiastic smartphone adoption but also increasing connectivity of machines, sensors, vehicles and other devices for health and smart environments.
The Inclusive Radio Communications (IRACON) concept defines those technologies aimed to support wireless connectivity at any rates, for any communicating units, and in any type of scenarios. The Wireless Internet of Things beyond 2020 will require revolutionary approaches in Radio Access technologies, networks and systems. Some theoretical foundations have to be revisited and breaking technologies are to be discovered during the coming decade.
This COST Action aims at scientific breakthroughs by introducing novel design and analysis methods for the 5th-generation (5G) and beyond-5G radio communication networks. Challenges include i) modelling the variety of radio channels that can be envisioned for future inclusive radio, ii) capacity, energy, mobility, latency, scalability at the physical layer and iii) network automation, moving nodes, cloud and virtualisation architectures at the network layer, as well as iv) experimental research addressing Over-the-Air testing, Internet of Things, localization and tracking and new radio access technologies.
The group of experts supporting this proposal comes from both academia and industry, from a wide spread of countries all over Europe, with the support of some non-COST institutions and R&D associations and standardisation bodies worldwide. The proposers have also long experience on COST Actions in the Radiocommunications field.

Dr Paweł Kułakowski obronił doktorat na AGH w roku 2007. Pracował na uczelniach zagranicznych: Technical University of Cartagena, University of Girona, University of Castilla-La Mancha, University of Seville i University of Lisbon. Uczestniczył w licznych projektach badawczych, m.in. był w komitecie wykonawczym projektów COST IC1004 (również jako szef grupy badawczej indoor) i IRACON, obecnie jest też kierownikiem ds. badań i rozwoju w projekcie NCBiR dot. miejskich sieci 5G i edytorem wykonawczym w czasopiśmie ETT (Wiley). Jest współautorem około 50 prac naukowych (w tym 3 nagrodzonych) i trzech książek, a także laureatem stypendium MNiSW dla młodych wybitnych naukowców. Jego obecne zainteresowania naukowe dotyczą planowania i rozwoju sieci 5/6G, AI w zastosowaniach medycznych i nano-komunikacji.
