About ComSoc

The aim of this Emerging Technology Initiative (ETI) is to foster research and innovation surrounding the use of machine learning (ML) for the physical (PHY) and medium access control (MAC) layers for all types of communication systems, such as wireless, optical, satellite, and molecular. We provide a list of Best Readings in MLC for newcomers and organize conference workshops, tracks, sessions, industry symposia, tutorials, summer schools, data science competitions, as well as special issues in journals. We aim to establish common data sets and related benchmarks and invite authors to open-source their code for reproducible research. We maintain a blog where members can write articles, opinions, perspectives or present their research in an accessible way.

Connectivity: From Top to Bottom

Satellite has long been used in conjunction with mobile networks although it has been limited to supplying backhaul for the access networks typically in rural and remote areas, wherein other forms of backhaul are often difficult to provide. The satellite industry on the other hand has long desired to use the satellites not just for backhaul but also for access networks

A Dynamic Cell-Less Architecture for Ultra-Dense Wireless Networks

This article proposes the use of a dynamically changing cell-less wireless network
architecture that copes with the high complexity of a fully-centralized cell-less architecture
in an ultra-dense network deployment scenario. It also discuses the
use of artificial intelligence (AI)-based methods to form clusters of APs efficiently
as well as non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) to satisfy the massive wireless
connectivity requirement.
