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 in terms of: (i) reducing the load on the core network, (ii) increasing radio access performance, and (iii) improving the overall QoE for the end user.
Indicative research topics of high interest include but are not limited to:
- Caching architectures, e.g., femto-caching.
- Memory management, content prefetching
- Recommendation-driven optimization of caching.
- Content placement, replication and delivery
- Big data caching analytics and machine learning
- Caching in the datacentre.
- Coded caching and information theoretic analyses.
- 5G and caching (IoT, D2D).
- Network economics for caching systems.
- Interplay of caching with wireless communications (PHY and MAC).
- Caching for Mobile Edge Computing.
- Cache sharing/slicing.
- Application-driven caching.
- Green caching.
- QoE-aware content caching.
- Stochastic cache models, scaling laws.
- Distributed and adaptive algorithms in CDNs/ICNs.
