Scope of the Workshop Technical Program Committee

Machine learning is among the most active research fields today, and much can Marko Angjelichinoski , Aalborg University
be expected from its successful application to communication networks. Yet, Helmut Bölcskei, ETH Zurich
transforming this expectation into reality requires significant research efforts and Eirina Bourtsoulatze, Imperial College London
interactions across the communications and machine learning research David Burshtein , Tel Aviv University
communities in order to overcome a number of technical obstacles. This Symeon Chatzinotas, University of Luxembourg
Elisabeth de Carvalho, Aalborg University
workshop will be devoted to the presentation of pioneering works targeting
Paolo Dini, CTTC
applications of machine learning methods in communication network problems,
Inaki Estella, Huawei Paris
with the goal of reaching a better understanding of the potential achievements Nariman Farsad, Stanford University
that can be expected. Additionally, contributions to the field of machine learning James Gross, KTH
itself, building on existing methods from the fields of communication, signal Robert Heath, University of Texas at Austin
processing, and information theory will also be discussed. Topics of interest may Jakob Hoydis, Nokia Bell Labs
include, but are not limited to the following: Anja Klein, TU Darmstadt
Georgios Koudouridis, Huawei Paris
