Future and emerging wireless networks will pose extreme communication requirements such as very high throughput rates and very low latency, particularly in QoE sensitive applications such as multimedia content delivery. Currently, operators are striving to reduce the investment and maintenance costs for cellular systems. In this context, caching has been proposed as a technique that has the potential to reduce backhaul network traffic and improve content latency for the wireless user. Especially in 5G, caching is proposed as one of the most promising new technologies. The Content Caching and Delivery in Wireless Networks (CCDWN) workshop focuses on techniques that aim to achieve efficient content delivery to the end user in order to meet the stringent quality requirements of 5G wireless. The idea is to bring together experts in the field and discuss ways in which content caching, sharing and prefetching can play a leading role in future wireless networks.
Indicative research topics of high interest include but are not limited to:
This workshop aims to bring together people from different communities, including networking, communications, computer science, operation research, machine learning, and information theory to shed light on the latest developments in the field.
To maximize interaction and visibility, CCDWN ‘18 will be co-located with WiOpt 2018 and will take place on May 7 or 11, 2018, in Shanghai, China. The workshop is considered an integral part of the WiOpt 2018 symposium. All CCDWN papers will be published in the same set of proceedings as the main conference and will be made available on the IEEE Xplore. Publication at this workshop is not intended to preclude later publication of an extended version of the paper. At least one author of each accepted paper is expected to present his/her paper at the workshop.
