Special Sessions

Special Session II

Feedback in wireless systems

In many multiuser wireless communications scenarios, good feedback is a crucial ingredient that facilitates improved performance. While being useful, perfect feedback is also hard and time-consuming to obtain. With this challenge as a starting point, the special session will host works that seek to address – over a plethora of different communication settings – the question of when, where and how much feedback is necessary. The session will also promote works that focus on modern communication schemes that operate in the presence of often imperfect and delayed delayed, such as novel interference management methods that adapt to feedback in order to cover the massive gap that exists between the case of perfect and no feedback. In addition to novel algorithms and fundamental limits in common communication settings, the special session will also seek works that introduce novel paradigms that depend on the quality-and-timeliness of feedback, such as those involving relay selection, bursty traffic, and information-theoretic secrecy.
