Invited Talk : "Prospect of Digital Holographic 3DTV"
Dr. Jinwoong Kim, Managing Director, Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute

Since Dennis Gabor invented a way to record whole properties of light field in 1948, and successful demonstration by Leith and Upatnieks of Michigan University of its marvelous capability in producing real life-like 3D images, holography has attracted many researchers and has been developed for diverse application areas. While conventional analog holography has limited applications and poses difficulties in widening use of the technology, digital holography has huge potentials in quite a lot of application areas and industries, though it is still in early stage for commercialization and has lots of technical issues to solve. In this talk, we present basic concept of holography, current status of digital holographic displays and discuss about prospect on futuristic holographic 3DTV broadcasting.

Invited Talk : "New Broadcasting Technology based on Single Lens Video Capturing System for 3D/UHD Applications"
Dr. Sangil Park, Professor, Seoul National University of Science and Technology

Recently, the broadcasting system requires High Definition capability with 3D image processing and 3G bps raw data interface specifications. Especially most of the movies are shot by 4K 3D/UHD resolution which requires 6 to 12 Giga bps interface capability. Moreover, broadcasters and contents makers are shifting all editing capabilities toward 4K/8K UHD systems. However, most of 3D capturing systems are using various rig system with 2 cameras on. Inherently, these systems have adjustment handicaps, such as optical system aligning, zooming, panning and focusing, since they have two different optical lenses for those two cameras fixed on the rig. This paper shows a novel way to remove all the disadvantages which the rig systems have. This new technology utilizes only one optical lens for zooming and focusing. Inherently, one lens system doesn’t have system aligning problem as well as panning. Moreover, this new system requires less number of bits for system interface.

Dr. Masahiro Umehira, Professor and Deputy Dean, College of Engineering, Ibaraki University, Japan

Cognitive radio was proposed by Dr. Joseph Mitola in 1999. Cognitive radio is a concept of smart wireless technology and its concept is very ambitious, but the problems to be solved by cognitive radio technology have not been well defined so far. In fact, 14 years have already passed and many research papers on cognitive radio technologies have been published since the proposal of cognitive radio, however it has not been successfully commercialized yet.
On the other hand, many researchers have initiated discussions on the next generation mobile communications, i.e. so-called 5G after IMT-Advanced, and have been trying to define its requirements and to propose technical solutions.
This invited talk will describe cognitive radio for next generation mobile communications. First of all, we will try to define the problems to be solved in next generation mobile communications and discuss the problems to be solved by cognitive radio technologies. Furthermore, we will describe a concept of frequency cooperative wireless networks based on cognitive radio with multi-band and multi-mode operations.

Invited Talk : "The 5-th Generation Wireless Communication Technology: Present and Future"
Dr. Ju Yong Lee, Professor, KAIST

It is required to increase the capacity 1000 times more and reduce the energy efficiency 1000 times more for 1000 times more devices in the 5-th generation wireless communication systems, compared to the present 4-th generation system. In order to increase the capacity and design low-power consumption network, the 5-th generation system is expected to evolve to the small cell based networks, which require wireless backhaul networks and interference management among small cells. Also, lots of antennas can increase the capacity with high energy efficiency. Recently, millimeter wave communication is gaining much attention worldwide as the future wireless communication technology, which can increase the frequency bandwidth resource while lots of antennas can be integrated in a small space. Since many antennas are important to increase the capacity and reduce the energy efficiency, digital beamforming, analog beamforming and hybrid beamforming technologies may be the driving force in the 5-th generation systems.

Recently, due to the rapid advances in the media of information delivery represented by social network service, explosive growth in the amount of data is witnessed what we call data big bang. More than 30 billion devices are expected to be wirelessly connected to the Internet of Things by 2020, and the era of big data has really come in which data are deemed as economic asset. Here not only the web-based static linked open data (LOD) but also the real-time streaming data generated from sensors and wearable devices need to be efficiently analyzed and processed. For this the three key issues are i) large-scale linked data storage and management, ii) real-time distributed query processing with time attribute, iii) semantic data mashup service. This presentation introduces state-of-the-art solutions and approaches related to these issues and the cloud computing platform regarded as an effective candidate for implementing the solutions. The intelligent transportation system (ITS) is shown as an application domain to which the big data processing technologies are applied.
