It is our pleasure to invite you to the workshop on “Multi-link networking for satellite and terrestrial wireless communications”, organized by the IEEE Benelux Joint Chapter on Communications and Vehicular Technology.

Multi-link satellite and terrestrial networking may provide technical solutions for a variety of persisting challenges in wireless communications. Within this workshop we aim at reviewing wireless technologies research in view of next generation 5G networks and specifically how multi-link networking could fit within the context of next generation wireless systems. The topics of network coding, 5G networks including satellite links, joint satellite and terrestrial networks, cross layer optimization in multi-link communications and Multipath TCP (MP-TCP) are sought to be addressed during this workshop.

The workshop is aiming to present and discuss the latest scientific and technical advances and ongoing research topics related to different aspects of multi-link networking for wireless communications in particular.

The event consists of invited talks as well as opportunities to discuss with academics and industry.

A visit of the ESTEC technical test facilities is foreseen.
