Program for these seminars:


“User centric mmWave ultra-dense networks”

Speaker:  Seong-Lyun Kim






Seong-Lyun Kim is a Professor of wireless networks at the School of Electrical & Electronic Engineering, Yonsei University, Seoul, Korea, heading the Radio Resource Management & Optimization  (RAMO) Laboratory and the Center for Flexible Radio (CFR+). He was an Assistant Professor of Radio Communication Systems at the Department of Signals, Sensors & Systems, Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm, Sweden. He was a Visiting Professor at the Control Group, Helsinki University of Technology  (now Aalto), Finland, and the KTH Center for Wireless Systems. He served as a technical committee member or a chair for various conferences, and an editorial board member of IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology, IEEE Communications Letters, Elsevier Control Engineering Practice and Journal of Communications and Network. He recently served as the leading guest editor of IEEE Wireless Communications, and IEEE Network for wireless communications in networked robotics. He also consulted various companies in the area of wireless systems both in Korea and abroad. His research interest includes radio resource management and information theory in wireless networks, economics of wireless systems, and robotic networks. He published numerous papers, including the co-authored book (with Prof. Jens Zander), Radio Resource Management for Wireless Networks. His degrees include BS in economics (Seoul National University), and MS & PhD in operations research (with application to wireless networks, Korea Advanced Institute of Science & Technology).


“Multiple access scheme for ultra-reliable low-latency communications”

Speaker: Kwang Soon Kim






In future wireless communications, more and more use cases and applications need to be supported and their performance requirement can be very diverse.

Among emerging use cases and applications, ultra-reliable and low-latency communications (URLLC) has drawn much attention because it can be an enabler for future services such as autonomous vehicles, factory automation, and tactile internet. In this talk, the research activity of Yonsei University on developing new multiple access schemes for ultra-reliable and low-latency communications (URLLC) is introduced with some initial results.

Kwang Soon Kim, Associate Professor of Dept. EE, Yonsei University. Dr. Kim served as an Editor of the Journal of the Korean Institute of Communications and Information Sciences (KICS) from 2006–2012 and has been its Editor-in-Chief since 2013. He has also been an Editor of the Journal of Communications and Networks since 2008 and of the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON WIRELESS COMMUNICATIONS since 2009. He received the Outstanding Researcher Award from Electronics and Telecommunication Research Institute in 2002, the Jack Neubauer Memorial Award (Best System Paper Award, IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON VEHICULAR TECHNOLOGY) from the IEEE Vehicular Technology Society in 2008, and the LG R&D Award: Industry-Academic Cooperation Prize from LG Electronics in 2013. His research interests include signal processing, communication theory, information theory, and stochastic geometry applied to wireless heterogeneous cellular networks, wireless local area networks, wireless device-to-device networks, and wireless ad hoc networks.


“5G radio access network architecture: METIS-II view”

Speaker: Ki Won Sung






One of the most important research questions for 5G is how to design radio access network (RAN) architecture to support the diverse requirements of 5G services. European Horizon 2020 project METIS-II aims to develop the overall 5G RAN design and to provide a common ground of performance evaluation for 5G RAN concepts. In this seminar, I will talk about the view of METIS-II about 5G RAN architecture. I will introduce key paradigms for 5G architecture, i.e., how 5G RAN should be designed. Then, I will discuss the main issues on protocol architecture, resource management functionality, and physical architecture.

Ki Won Sung is a researcher in Communication Systems department at KTH. He received Ph.D. degree in Industrial Engineering from KAIST, Korea in 2005. From 2005 to 2007, he was a senior engineer in Samsung Electronics. In 2008, he was a visiting researcher at the Edinburgh University. He joined KTH in 2009. His research interests include dynamic spectrum access, energy efficient wireless network, cost effective deployment and operation, and future wireless architecture. He served as an assistant project coordinator of FP7 project QUASAR.

The seminars are partly supported by NRF of Korea and STINT of Sweden via the project “Agile radio renounce management for 5G wireless systems in shared spectrum”

Most Welcome the 12th!
