Title: Ultra Reliable Low Latency Communications in 5G


Date and time: TBA



Abstract: The fifth generation (5G) of cellular networks shall provide connectivity for a wide range of services. Ultra reliable low latency communication (URLLC) is one of the representative service categories of high importance for new industrial applications. The 3GPP standardization for URLLC is now in progress and the current status will be overviewed in the keynote. The main enablers of low latency and reliability on the physical and MAC layers, and network slicing on the higher layers will be presented.

Title: Quality of Experience as a Challenge for Modern Video Streaming Services


Date and time: TBA


Abstract: Most of modern telecom applications and video streaming services are developed in customer-centric style. This style requires knowledge about user experience to improve a service performance. Main topic of this keynote is quality of experience (QoE) paradigm commonly used for assessment of user satisfaction and for prediction of customer’s emo­tional feedback in different states of considered services. Keynote includes a brief history, a description of main approaches for numerical criteria developing and possible ways of services improvement using QoE prediction.

Standardization of QoE started in the middle of 1990s. ITU-T initiated p.900 series for subjective assessment of audiovisual quality in multimedia services. Most common numerical criteria are mean opinion score (MOS) and its modifications. MOS prediction is usually based on machine learning methods. Most common class of methods is supervised learning. However, methods from this class meet an issue requiring a large set of data that describes user feedback about his/her satisfaction for each service feature. Such data can be obtained using crowdsourcing or laboratory measurement but they require a lot of participants and careful results processing. A final part of keynote is dedicated to video streaming performance improvement using QoE prediction.
