The 2017 Joint IEEE SPS and EURASIP Summer School on Signal Processing for 5G Wireless Access belongs to the successful series of Seasonal Schools in Signal Processing (S3P), established in 2010. This edition is organized at Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden, during May 29 – June 1, 2017. The school is jointly organized by Chalmers University of Technology, Linköping University, University of Texas at Austin, Aalborg University, and University of Vigo. The registration deadline is April 30, 2017.

The school features a unique program of lectures, assembled by leading experts in the field of signal processing for communications. Signal processing is at the core of the emerging fifth generation (5G) cellular communication systems, which will feature revolutionary changes in the physical layer. The objective of this summer school is to teach the main physical-layer techniques for 5G from a signal-processing perspective. The lectures will provide background on 5G wireless communication concepts, and their formulation from a signal processing perspective. Emphasis will be placed on showing specifically how cutting-edge signal processing techniques can be used in 5G.

Overview of topics

The lecture topics include: Massive MIMO, mmWave communications, positioning, and massive machine-to-machine (M2M) communication. Through the course of the lectures, connections will be made to core signal processing topics, including channel estimation via compressed sensing, while also introducing the mathematics associated with the analysis and optimization of communication systems.
