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.

Informacje dodatkowe: 

Dr Paweł Kułakowski obronił doktorat dotyczący systemów wieloantenowych MIMO na AGH w roku 2007. Po doktoracie ponad dwa lata pracował na uniwersytetach Technical University of Cartagena, University of Girona i University of Castilla La Mancha w Hiszpanii. Obecnie jest zatrudniony na stanowisku adiunkta w Katedrze Telekomunikacji AGH. Jego zainteresowania naukowe dotyczą nano-sieci komunikacyjnych, sieci 5G i IoT, sieci samo-organizujących się oraz algorytmów lokalizacji bezprzewodowej. W latach 2011-15 współprzewodniczył europejskiej grupie naukowej zajmującej się komunikacją bezprzewodową w środowisku indoor w projekcie COST Action IC1004 on Cooperative Radio Communications for Green Smart Environments. Obecnie jest w komitecie zarządzającym kolejnego projektu typu COST: IRACON Inclusive Radio Communication Networks for 5G and beyond. W roku 2008 otrzymał grant MNiSW "Wsparcie międzynarodowej mobilności naukowców". W roku 2010 był głównym organizatorem warsztatów naukowych dotyczących sieci sensorowych w Kanadzie. W roku 2014 uzyskał stypendium MNiSW dla młodych wybitnych naukowców. Jest laureatem dwóch nagród za najlepsze publikacje konferencyjne. Pełni również funkcję edytora wykonawczego w czasopiśmie Transactions on Emerging Telecommunications Technologies.

Additional information: 

Pawel Kulakowski (www.kt.agh.edu.pl/~brus) received his Ph.D. in telecommunications from the AGH University of Science and Technology, Poland, in 2007, and currently he is working there as an assistant professor. He spent about 2 and 1/2 years as a post-doc or a visiting professor at universities in Spain, specifically at Technical University of Cartagena, University of Girona, University of Castilla-La Mancha and University of Seville. He co-authored more than 40 scientific papers, in journals, conferences and as technical reports. During last 12 years, he was involved in european research projects, especially COST Actions: COST2100, IC1004 and CA15104 IRACON, focusing on topics of wireless sensor networks, indoor localization and wireless communications in general. His current research interests include molecular communications and nanonetworks. He was recognized with several scientific distinctions, including 3 awards for his conference papers and a governmental scholarship for young outstanding researchers. Since 2011, he is an executive editor in Transactions on Emerging Telecommunications Technologies.
