Title: How Low Latency Requirement Shapes the Tradeoff between System Energy Consumption and Achievable Rate
Abstract: It is known that in most of the operating communication systems, improving spectral efficiency will lead to decreasing energy efficiency of the system. Given that improving SE and EE are major concerns for most of future communication systems, studying the relation between the two can have important impact on the transmission parameter design of these systems. Although the SE and EE trade-off is well studied in traditional networks, the characteristics of this tradeoff is not known well in Low Latency regime. This talk focuses on the effects of the delay limitation on the SE-EE tradeoff pattern.
Short bio: Leila Musavian received her Ph.D. degree in Telecommunications from Kings College London, UK, in 2006. She is currently working as a Reader in Telecommunications at the School of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering, University of Essex. Prior to that, she was a Lecturer at InfoLab21, Lancaster University (2012-2016). She was a Research Associate at McGill University (2011-2012), a research associate at Loughborough University, UK (2009-2010) and a post-doctoral fellow at INRS-EMT, Canada (2006-2008). She is correctly the Deputy Director of Research of the School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering, University of Essex. Her research interests lie in Radio Resource Management for Low latency communications, next generation wireless networks, radio resource allocations, Energy Harvesting, Green Communication, energy-efficient transmission techniques, cross-layer design for delay QoS provisioning and 5G systems. She is an editor of IEEE TRANSACTIONS OF WIRELESS COMMUNICATIONS, Executive Editor of Transactions on Emerging Telecommunications Technologies and Associate Editor of Wiley’s Internet Technology Letters. She has been TPC Co-Chair of CorNer 2016 (in conjunction with ISWCS 2016) and Co-Chair of mmWave 5G (STEMCOM 2016) and TPC member of several conferences including IEEE ICC, IEEE GLOBECOM, IEEE WCNC, IEEE ICCCN, IEEE PIMRC, ChinaCom.
