Speech Title: Unlocking the Potential of Federated Learning: A Path towards Future Network Intelligence

Abstract: Machine learning, particularly distributed learning, stands as the cornerstone in the vision of future network intelligence, owing to its remarkable capability of addressing intricate computational tasks and modeling complexities. In this talk, we provide a comprehensive coverage of a distributed learning paradigm rooted in federated learning. Specifically, we start with a brief overview of federated learning. Then, we elucidate an over-the-air computation-based variant of federated learning, which circumvents the communication bottleneck by harnessing the superposition properties of wireless channels. Notably, such a scheme presents new advantages, such as reduced processing latency and enhanced privacy protection. We also discuss several approaches to personalize the federated learning framework by addressing challenges stemming from data heterogeneity. Lastly, we share some of our recent works investigating the interplay between federated learning and foundation models.

Speech Title: Multiobjective Evolutionary Computation based Decomposition

Abstract: Many optimization problems in the real world, by nature, have multiple conflicting objectives. Unlike a single optimization problem, multiobjective optimization problem has a set of Pareto optimal solutions (Pareto front) which are often required by a decision maker. Evolutionary algorithms are able to generate an approximation to the Pareto front in a single run, and many traditional optimization methods have been also developed for dealing with multiple objectives. Combination of evolutionary algorithms and traditional optimization methods should be a next generation multiobjective optimization solver. Decomposition techniques have been well used and studied in traditional multiobjective optimization. Over the last decade, a lot of effort has been devoted to build efficient multiobjective evolutionary algorithms based on decomposition (MOEA/D). In this talk, I will describe main ideas and techniques and some recent development in MOEA/D. I will also discuss some possible research issues in multiobjective evolutionary computation.

Speech Title: RIS-assisted Communications: Mutual-Coupling- Aware Model and System Optimization

Abstract: The performances of wireless communication systems are constrained by the quality of the channel environment. With the introduction of Reconfigurable Intelligent Surface (RIS), channel parameters become more controllable. This revolutionary transformation significantly enhances the flexibility of communication systems. Specially, RIS facilitates the adjustment of electromagnetic wave propagation paths, reducing signal transmission losses and ensuring more effective and stable signal transmission. However, most of theoretical studies often overlook its corresponding hardware characteristics (such as unit types, array configurations, coupling effects, electromagnetic properties of input waves). Indeed, it leaves room for further exploration in characterizing its physical features. In this talk, we focus on the coupling effects of RIS. Particularly, we systematically review the research background of coupling models and further develop a highly adaptable end-to-end RIS-assisted communication model. It may demonstrate the pivotal significance of its physical characteristics in theoretical analysis.

Speech Title: Formal Verification Method for Fault Coverage Capability of March Algorithm based on SpinalHDL

Abstract: March algorithm is a series of algorithms commonly used for memory testing, aiming to detect and diagnose faults in memory. The continuously evolving March algorithms are capable of detecting an increasing number of complex faults. However, the question of whether March algorithm can achieve the intended design goal, i.e., achieving full coverage of theoretically detectable faults, currently lacks practical validation methods. One approach to address this issue is to conduct formal verification of the fault detection capability of March algorithm on a software platform. Therefore, this paper proposes a method that utilizes SpinalHDL to model the fault behavior of memory cells and March algorithm. By simulating the progression of March algorithm within the memory cells, reaching sensitization conditions during the progression, injecting faults into the memory cells, and checking whether March algorithm can detect these faults, the fault detection capability of March algorithm can be validated to determine if it meets the design expectations.

Speech Title: A Green Base Station Dual Power Supply Strategy

Abstract: During the last decades, the electricity required for base stations has been a huge expense for communication operators. With the development of mobile communication technology, the intensive deployment of base stations has become a critical approach to meet the demand for high-speed data transmission. However, this will further increase operators' electricity bills. The issue of huge electricity bills has become a heavy burden for operators. The utilize of renewable energy is the key to solving this problem. Due to the instability of renewable energy sources, many power supply strategies have been proposed. Green hybrid energy dual power supply system has been recently proposed as most promising approach to address the disadvantages of renewable energy. Therefore, a solar-based dual power supply strategy is proposed to tackle the issue in this article. The strategy consists of the Grid-Connection Depth (GCD) model and the Battery Energy Sharing (BES) model. When renewable energy is insufficient, the GCD model is adopted to utilize as much renewable energy as possible. When renewable energy is abundant, the BES model is exploited to fully utilize the idle energy. Through the combination of the two models, the goal of maximizing the utilization of renewable energy at base stations can be achieved to reduce electricity bills for operators. Moreover, the both optimal energy transfer values are obtained through the optimization of two above models. The proposed strategy is numerically analyzed and compared with the other strategies. Finally, the proposed strategy is proved to be of high practical value.

Speech Title: Resource Allocation for SFC Networks: A Deep Reinforcement Learning Approach

Abstract: The rapid evolution of mobile communications technology has led to the widespread adoption of cutting-edge technologies such as Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and Software-Defined Networking (SDN). Network flexibility and scalability have been greatly improved by virtualizing traditional dedicated hardware functions on standard hardware and servers. However, the effective deployment of Service Function Chains (SFC) and the allocation of computing resources in this virtualized network environment remain to be solved. This study presents a resource allocation approach using the Proximal Policy Optimization (PPO) algorithm. It features a novel SFC network model, utilizing reinforcement learning to intelligently train and make decisions, focusing on the cost-performance relationship in node deployment. Simulation results show that this algorithm effectively balances the relationship between node deployment cost and end-to-end service latency while ensuring the quality of service requirements.

Speech Title: A Research on the Advanced 5G/6G Antenna-Taking the High-Capacity High-Gain Wide-Coverage Ceiling Antenna as an Example

Abstract: A dual-polarized (DP) antenna with a conical radiation pattern and high gain characteristics is proposed. It is mainly comprised of a horizontally polarized (HP) array, a vertically polarized (VP) element, a fence, and a feeding network. In the HP direction, a rotatable stacked substrate-integrated waveguide (SIW)-to-coaxial-to-SIW transition (SCST) is meticulously designed to yield omnidirectional radiation with low gain variations and low transmission loss. As for the VP direction, two orthogonal substrates that are arranged above the VP radiating element act as a holder to fix the director, resulting in gain enhancement. Here, the VP element is placed in the center of the HP array to share the aperture for size reduction. Moreover, the top-hat-shaped metal fence collaborates with the large-size ground plane to yield dual conical beams with high gain in DP directions. From the measured results, the HP direction has exhibited desirable bandwidth of 11.4% (24.8–27.8 GHz) with a peak gain of 11.6 dBi, and the VP direction has demonstrated wider bandwidth of 13.7% (24.5–28.1 GHz) with a corresponding gain up to 8.1 dBi. Notably, low gain variations of ±0.65 and ±0.8 dBi are also realized for the HP and VP directions, respectively. Therefore, a DP antenna with high-gain conical beams and low gain variations can be obtained for the fifth-generation (5G) millimeter-wave (MMW) ceiling communications.
