OTE in cooperation with UPC, NCSRD, ORION, EHU and INCITES has organised a 5G ESSENCE-based Workshop (i.e.: the 5G-PINE 2018 Workshop (“5G – Putting Intelligence to the Network Edge 2018”) in the context of the Artificial Intelligence Applications and Innovations 2018 International Conference (AIAI-2018) that has been held in Rhodes, Greece, on May 25-27, 2018.
Following to the successful organisation of the prior 5G-PINE 2016 Workshop held in the AIAI 2016 International Conference and 5G-PINE 2017 Workshop held in the EANN 2017 International Conference that had both been aligned to the SESAME project, this time the 5G-PINE Workshop has been structured to follow the conceptual challenges introduced by be the 5G ESSENCE project. The organisation of the workshop has been a full success with finally seven papers accepted, in whole.
More specifically, we had the following papers purely coming from the 5G ESSENCE context:
- OTE, in cooperation with ATH, ITL, SML, ZII, i2CAT, TCS and EHU, has submitted a paper entitled as “Use Cases for 5G Networks Using Small Cells” that has been accepted after review.
- OTE, in cooperation with NCSRD, ORION, UoA (University of Athens) and CLEMIC Services SA, has submitted a second paper entitled as “Enhancing Network Management via NFV, MEC, Cloud Computing and Cognitive Features: The “5G ESSENCE” Modern Architectural Approach” that has been accepted after review.
- UPC has submitted a paper entitled as “Space/Time Traffic Fluctuations in a Cellular Network: Measurements’ Analysis and Potential Applications” that has been accepted after review.
- FBK/CNET has submitted a paper entitled as “On Edge Cloud Architecture and Joint Physical Virtual Resource Orchestration for SDN/NFV”) that has been accepted after review.
In the scope of the 5G-PINE 2018 Workshop, the 5G ESSENCE project had the opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences with other EU-funded projects like: (i) the 5G City 5G-PPP project of Phase 2; (ii) the H2020 VICINITY project, and; (iii) AMSES and SONAR 5G grants (ref. TEC2013-41698-R and TEC2017-82651-R) funded by the Spanish Government.
- An additional fifth paper entitled as “Providing Mission-Critical Services over 5G Radio Access” has been submitted in the wider AIAI-2018 framework as a joint work by EHU, ORION and TCS, and has been accepted after review.
