Workshop on "Digitalisation of Education and Management"
organized jointly by National Polytechnic University of Armenia (Yerevan, Armenia) and State University of Management (Moscow, Russia)

The main goal of the Workshop is to become a valuable and important platform for inspiring international and interdisciplinary exchange at the forefront of digitalisation mostly dedicated to education and management. We expect to bring together academicians, educators, engineers, managers and policy-makers from all over the world and hope that leading specialists of the field will take this opportunity to join us for academic exchange.

Digitalisation deals with exploring and understanding Digital Technology as a set of hardware, software and methodological tools that determines both the strategic and operational capabilities in designing and developing products for corporate productivity, profitability, competitiveness and, certainly, maximum customer satisfaction. This requires scientifically based and methodologically developed harmonization of technologies and business strategies.

Another crucial factor is the modern innovative education based on the thoughtful organization and management of educational processes for which, in its turn, correct use of advanced Digital Technology can provide high quality of education.

No less important is the topic of cyber security and data protection. Digital companies benefit from increasing attractiveness through digital services and improved user experience. The increase in digital systems and the associated information volumes make data protection and cyber security as a whole all the more important. Every company that becomes digital has to deal with this.

The scope of the Workshop covers both theoretical and practical areas of Digitalisation focused on Education and Management. Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following: Digital Technology Governance, Financial Management in Digital Technology, Digital Technology Service Management, Personnel Management in Digital Technology, Digital Technology Configuration Management, Business and Digital Technology Alignment, Education for Digital Technology Managers, Innovative Education Based on Digital Technology, Evaluation of Active Teaching and Learning Technologies, Cyber Security Management, Organization of Data Protection.

5G and beyond workshop

NAS RA, IIAP, Tuesday, 27 August 2019
AUA, Thursday, 29 August 2019

Main Goal:
The main goal of the workshop is to engage researchers from Armenia, from National Academy of Sciences with its Institute for Informatics and Automation Problems, and AUA, and from different institutions, such as YSU, National Polytechnic University of Armenia, industry, etc. It is going to be an informal workshop, more of a brainstorming format. It could open up a discussion forum with the Armenian researchers to discover what are they working on in the context of the wireless communication and similar research areas. Certainly, this could potentially open up opportunities to participate in joint projects and collaborate in research.

The realization of this long-term vision requires tackling key technical challenges to allow for greater temporal, spectral, coding and spatial resource efficiency. As well, these technologies all rely on high levels of electronic device integration, yielding a radical new connectorless measurement paradigm where “on-wafer-to-over-the-air” measurements are the norm. The above requirements, especially the need for massive connectivity and diverging latency, challenge the current cellular networks in many ways, particularly the available multiple access (MA) methods. As a result, significant efforts have been recently made to design more spectrally and energy efficient MA schemes for future wireless networks. A common feature of these newly designed MA schemes is the avoidance of the use of conventional orthogonal schemes. Instead, users are encouraged to share their bandwidth resources opportunistically according to their diverse channel conditions and their quality of service requirements. The superior spectral efficiency of these nonorthogonal multiple access (NOMA) schemes has been demonstrated by recent theoretical and experimental studies.
Collaboration among all stakeholders in industry, academia, and standards development organizations to develop a roadmap can reduce some of the technical and engineering risk associated with the migration to Beyond 5G technologies. Exposure to such expertise and approaches will inform organizational strategies. Other roadmap collaboration benefits include, for example, stronger engagement with the network of experts from all sectors of the industry; alignment among operators, component manufacturers, suppliers, end-users, hardware device and testing companies towards common future goals throughout the Beyond 5G ecosystem; and an influence and input to standards, with individual organization engagement possibilities.
The workshop will provide a forum for brainstorming on the wireless technology for 5G cellular networks. We aim to invite together the leading researchers in the field, both from academia and industry, to share their recent findings and their views on new emerging wireless communication best suit the diverse requirements of next generation networks. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  1. Radio access network (RAN) architectures
    1. Multi-tier HetNets, small cells, moving cells

  2. Emerging technologies in the physical layer (PHY)
    1. ULLRC (ultra-low latency and reliable communications)
