T2: Key Aspects in the Symbiosis of Analog and Digital Technologies Shaping Wireless Communication Systems

Efraín Zenteno, Ph.D.
Universidad Católica San Pablo (Peru)

About the tutorial: This tutorial surveys the evolution of wireless communication systems from a historical perspective with emphasis on the analog and digital interplay and its future  perspectives. We overview and analyze the trends in modern communication systems, from a capacity / deployment point of view and  give insigths into the challenges and oportunities faced by the analog  hardware and its digital counterpart in order to achieve enhanced network performance.  Particularly, we higligth the emerging technologies proposed to cope with the network capacity increase, such as, MIMO, massive MIMO, spectrum sharing, small cells, between others, and reflect on the implications of these technologies on the hardware efficiency, cost and deployment.
Time: 10:00 - 13:00 h.

Location: Room PB-08
T3: Channel Estimation in Multicarrier Communication Systems – A System Identification Approach

Rodrigo Carvajal, Ph.D.
Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María (Chile)

About this tutorial: It is about the general problem of channel estimation in multicarrier (MC) communication systems, with a focus on mobile communications.
We will address the physical layer characteristics of LTE systems, the properties of the mobile radio propagation channel, and the characteristics and models of carrier frequency offset and phase noise in MC systems, and the effects they have on the received signals.
After that, we will address the problem of channel estimation in MC communication systems. This estimation problem, inter-alia, includes the joint estimation of channel noise variance, carrier frequency offset and phase noise bandwidth. In particular, we focus on Maximum Likelihood (ML) and Maximum a Posteriori (MAP) estimation, for which the Expectation-Maximization (EM) algorithm is considered. For MAP estimation, the prior terms are expressed as variance-mean Gaussian mixtures. In this case, the channel estimate can be obtained in closed form within the EM framework. It is also shown that the utilization of variance-mean Gaussian mixtures present a general method for MAP estimation, which encompasses different penalizations and optimization methods, such as the Lasso, Group-Lasso, and the lq-norm, among others.
Finally, it is also shown that the estimation of the channel noise variance is not straightforward, and that some modifications to the standard methods should be considered. It is shown that, in the proposed MAP estimation approach, those modifications can be included in a simple manner.
Time: 10:00 - 13:00 h.

Location: Laboratory of High Frequency, Signals and Data (Lab. AFSD)
T4: Introduction to the Reconfigurable Networking Hardware Platform, NetFPGA

R. Boris Martínez
Universidad Católica San Pablo (Peru)

About this tutorial: To give an introduction to handle the NetFPGA platform in order to perform the different packages available in the web.
To make basic changes and get a better handle the platform for later to be able to make their own models according to their research topic. The NetFPGA can be also used as a teaching tool, researchers and teachers involved with teaching of networking and computing can benefit with managing this card.

T6: Diameter Constrained Reliability and its Impact in Network Design

Pablo Romero, Ph.D.
Universidad de la República (Uruguay)

About this tutorial: Computer Science naturally deals with optimization, search and recognition problems. However, reliability analysis does not fall into the previous classification. The classical reliability problem is to find the connectedness probability of a random graph. However, in several real-life applications, a hop constraint is essential (video-streaming applications, cooperative environments, degraded systems). The diameter-constrained reliability has been introduced in 2001, inspired in delay-sensitive applications over the Internet infrastructure,
In this tutorial, we study the computational complexity of the diameter-constrained reliability, and its impact in topological network design.
Time: 14:30 - 16:45 h.

Location: Room 108
T7: Review of Internet of Things

Gustavo A. Ramírez, Ph.D.
Universidad del Cauca (Colombia)

About this tutorial: It has been 10 years since ITU in a report, talks about a promise of a world of devices interconnected that provide relevant content to user, it was call  Internet of Things, there have been several proposal for the implementation of this possibility. Now ten years later this concept is surround us. This tutorial make a review and demonstrations of the most important technologies and mechanisms that enable  this promise, since RFID in its raw basis to the sophisticated options of his fashionable NFC alternative; since the basic management of raw data and sensor to IoT searching mechanisms nowadays.
Time: 16:00 - 18:15 h.

Location: Laboratory C (Lab. C)
T8: Handling Software Defined Radio: A Guide to Universal Software Radio Peripheral

Ebert San Román, M.Sc., et al.
Universidad Católica San Pablo (Peru)

About this tutorial: In this tutorial we will give a practical introduction to the handling of software defined radio. In order to achieve this goal, we will provide a practical guide (in the laboratory) to the programming of the Universal Software Radio Peripheral (USRP).
This technology is really important in these moment, especially to applications in which multiple radio interfaces, with different frequencies and modulations have to interact.
