Objectives and Motivation 


Wireless communications and networks has been serving the human kind for so many years by facilitating communication between people beyond the physical boundaries. Improvements in information processing competency of wireless nodes and efficient network planning coupled with advances in wireless communication have resulted in the emergence of nodes which have high processing and communication competences. One of the significant issues in 5G wireless communications is energy efficiency. Recently, in wireless communication system, many research activities have been emerged in the areas of energy saving hardware and devices, energy-efficient communication techniques, wireless power transfer (WPT) and simultaneous information and power transfer (SWIPT) for 5G technologies such as Massive MIMO, mmWave, the redesign of energy-aware network constructions and protocols, energy-aware software and applications, green communications, and renewable energy sources.



The conference session entitled “Energy-Aware 5G Wireless Communications” is expected to exchange ideas and thoughts about impacts of energy efficient communications and networks research on the state of the art as well as upcoming trends of issues related to research and applications of 5G related emerging topics.


Scope and Interests 


This special track aims at bringing researchers, engineers, postgraduate students together to discuss the opportunities and challenges in the research, design, and engineering of energy aware wireless networks, RF energy harvesting solutions for 5G networks, recent challenges of simultaneous information and power transfer etc. Accordingly it will focus on, but will not be limited to, the following subjects of interest.


Topics of the session may include, but not limited to, the following: 


·         Simultaneous wireless information and power transfer

·         Energy efficient wireless protocols 

·         Location techniques, routing, medium access control for green communications

·         Energy efficient network resource management, network protocols

·         Green mobility and task Coordination 

·         Performance analysis/evaluation of WPT/SWIPT assisted systems   

·         Security, privacy, data integrity  in WPT/SWIPT

·         Network architecture and protocol design for energy harvesting and transfer

·         Waveform design for wireless power transfer

·         Spectrum sensing and sharing for WPT/SWIPT

·         Energy harvesting applications and solutions for the Internet of Everything/Things (IoE/IoT)

·         Energy harvesting and transfer for wireless sensor networks

·         Prototype and testbed for WPT/SWIPT

·         MAC and routing protocols for energy harvesting systems 

The accepted papers will be published by IEEE and it will appear on IEEE-Xplore. Also, the best articles will be invited to be published  after expansion in Journal of Information Retrieval "ACM Index journal" (Scopus) or as book chapter in IGI Book. .
