Agenda | Confirmed attendees

Infrastructure is a key part of research and experimentation. The focus of this NSF workshop is to discuss future needs and challenges of creating, operating, and managing experimentation infrastructure for future wireless research activities, at scale. Topics to be addressed include: (i) how to create infrastructure at a large-scale, e.g., a city; (ii) use of LTE infrastructure with edge programmability; (iii) role of cloud and related services in this infrastructure; (iv) spectrum sharing and resource slicing issues that is beneficial for co-existence; (v) could the same infrastructure be effectively shared for experimentation and with other applications, e.g., public safety, first responder systems; (vi) how to operate such infrastructure at scale with potentially commercial partners; (vii) what is the right organizational setup for such infrastructure; and much more. Participation in this workshop is through invitation-only. An open call for participation was announced in early October 2014 and the set of attendees have been finalized based on various responses received. If you want to provide any input to the workshop organizers on the topic above, please send us email.
