Multicell Cooperation and MIMO Technologies for Broadcasting and Broadband Communications

Description

The wireless industry is experiencing an unprecedented increase in the number and sophistication of broadcasting and broadband communication systems. The growing diffusion of new services, like mobile television and multimedia communications, emphasizes the need of advanced transmission techniques that can fundamentally increase the system capacity. In this context, the multicell collaborative transmission is becoming one of a major subject of research in the wireless communication community as it has been identified as one of the underlying principles for future wireless communication systems. Further, if perfect cooperation is assumed, it allows the entire network to be viewed as a single cell MIMO system with a distributed antenna array at the base station.

This special issue aims at promoting state-of-the-art research contributions from all research areas either directly involved in or contributing to improving the issues related to multicell cooperation and MIMO technologies for broadcasting and broadband communications. Topics of interest of this special issue include but are not limited to:

  • Information theoretic aspects of cooperative communication systems
  • Cooperative broadcasting with uninformed transmitter
  • Effects of partial and incomplete channel state information in cooperative/MIMO systems
  • Advances in MIMO and MISO algorithms and applications
  • Physical and MAC layer issues in cooperative/MIMO communications
  • Performance analysis of distributed MIMO techniques
  • Space-time diversity technologies and space-time coding
  • Practical implementations, test-beds, and demonstrations
  • Standardization and deployment in 3G+, 4G, and beyond
