The Fifth International Workshop on Design, Modeling and Evaluation of Cyber Physical Systems (CyPhy'15) - 8 October 2015, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
(Held in conjunction with ESWEEK 2015)

Scope Cyber physical systems (CPSs) combine computing and networking power with physical components. They enable innovation in a wide range of domains including robotics; smart homes, vehicles, and buildings; medical implants; and future-generation sensor networks.  CyPhy'15 brings together researchers and practitioners working on modeling, simulation, and evaluation of CPS, based on a broad interpretation of these areas, to collect and exchange expertise from a diverse set of disciplines. The workshop places particular focus on techniques and components to enable and support virtual prototyping and testing. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following aspects of cyber-physical systems:

  • Foundations: models of computation, modeling and simulation languages for hybrid and cyber-­physical systems, including hybrid automata and hybrid process theory, as well as other integrations of control-­theoretic and discrete-­event models
  • Methods: Specifications and evaluation of processes for rigorous modeling, testing, simulation, and verification of new cyber-­physical systems
  • Case studies: Development of industrial or research ­oriented cyber­-physical systems in domains such as robotics, smart systems (homes, vehicles, buildings), medical and healthcare devices, future generation networks
  • Tools: Evaluation of novel research tools, comparisons of state of the art tools in industrial practice.

Optimizing 5G Networks for Energy-Efficiency: Small Cells, Massive MIMO or Both?

Seminar by Dr. Emil Björnson, Assistant Professor, Linköping University, 18 September, 2015.

Abstract: Suppose that a 5G wireless network is designed from scratch to bring a uniform user experience with maximal energy efficiency (EE) as the main goal. How would such a network look like? To answer this fundamental question we need to understand how the EE depends on various network design parameters: the density and distribution of access points; the number of antennas deployed at each access point; the number of user terminals that can be served simultaneously; the beamforming that maps antennas to users; the average radiated signal power per user; and the hardware characteristics. In this tutorial, the EE metric [bit/Joule] is defined as the ratio between sum area throughput [bit/s/km^2] and area power consumption [Joule/s/km^2]. A survey is first provided on how to model these main terms accurately, to take all important system parameters and dependences into account. Based on the developed models, the EE is maximized using tools from both mathematical optimization and stochastic geometry. This leads to closed-form expressions that describe how the main design parameters depend on one another. The results and insights are exemplified for two tractable cases of network deployment: regular patterns of base stations (e.g., hexagonal cells) and stochastic patterns based on Poisson point processes. We will see how small cells and massive MIMO techniques show up naturally as energy-efficient solutions. In the last part of the tutorial, we describe how to optimize 5G networks with respect to more than one metric; for example, energy efficiency, user throughput, and area throughput.
