The "IEEE WoWMoM'16 Workshop on Fifth Generation Wireless: From Bits to Packets (5GB2P)" provides a platform for interdisciplinary researchers and technical experts to elaborate on recent advances on 5G wireless networks from the PHY layer to the MAC layer. Fifth-generation wireless systems aim to 1000 fold capacity gains with 1ms maximal latency, highest possible quality of experience and seamless connectivity for users. To this end, multiple-layer paradigms need to be addressed to deal with the conflicting objectives that are required to meet the capacity and delay requirements of the 5G.

On the bit level, information theoretic and stochastic geometric tools play significant roles to allow the modeling and evaluation of new scenarios with new diversification of cells within a wireless coverage area. Small femto cells coexistence with macro cells, Massive MIMO, 3D beamforming, Device to Device communications, offloading, and multicell-multi-technology cooperation, within local and global coverage are at the heart of the breakthrough of the next generation wireless. Besides, other technologies that allow the co-existence of Heterogeneous (HetNet) setups of licensed and unlicensed spectrum with ubiquitous communications is the global objective that need to be explored.

On the packet level, new multiple access schemes that capitalize on multicarrier technologies need to be defined. MAC Layer resource allocation, coding and modulation schemes adapted to the 5G requirements is of fundamental importance to be discussed in this workshop. Therefore, several technologies that rely on the smart exploitation of the 3D holy grail of telecommunications: ‘time-frequency-and space’ need to be addressed. Addressing such 3D from bits to packets require a global awareness and micro-detailed optimization of multiple objectives with joint and cross layer perspectives.

The aim of this workshop is to address a set of potential technologies in the 5G from bits to packets, i.e. from the theory to the practical schemes and algorithms and to provide insights on the costs and gains associated to several solutions.
This workshop will bring together academic and industrial researchers to identify and discuss technical challenges and recent results related to PHY and MAC layer for improving the spectral efficiency on a user and on a network level.

Specific topics include, but are not limited to:

· Information theoretic tools and fundamental limits for 5G

· Massive MIMO, Small Cells, D2D, M2M, Cloud RAN.

· Multicell Cooperation and Interference Management for 5G

· Radio Resource Allocation with Multicarrier Technologies for 5G

· Coding and Modulation Techniques for 5G

· Energy Efficiency for 5G

· MAC layer design for 5G

· Mobility Management for 5G

· 5G satellite/terrestrial convergence

· Demo and field trials
