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.

topic above, please send us email.
