IEEE Distinguished Lecture Tour by Prof. Osvaldo Simeone

On behalf of the IEEE joint VT/COM/IT Sweden Chapter Board, We are delighted to invite you to an IEEE Information Theory Society Distinguished Lecture Tour (DLT) by Prof. Osvaldo Simeone, King’s College, London, U.K.

Title: Fog-Aided Wireless Networks: An Information-Theoretic View

Fog-aided wireless networks are an emerging class of wireless systems that leverage the synergy and complementarity of cloudification and edge processing, two key technologies in the evolution towards 5G systems and beyond. The operation of fog-aided wireless networks poses novel fundamental research problems pertaining to the optimal management of the communication, caching and computing resources at the cloud and at the edge, as well as to the transmission on the fronthaul network connecting cloud and edge. In this talk, it will be argued via specific examples concerning the problem of content delivery that network information theory provides a principled framework to develop fundamental theoretical insights and algorithmic guidelines on the optimal design of fog-aided networks. This work has received funding from the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (grant agreement No. 725731).
