With the explosive growth of wireless communications, frequency resources become more and morescarce, which dramatically increases the mobile service providers' cost to acquire new frequency bands.Therefore, how to efficiently utilize frequency resources becomes one of the most important challenges in thedesign of next generation wireless communication systems. Full duplex (FD), which allows a transceiver tosimultaneously transmit and receive signals at the same frequency band by employing advanced technologieson antenna, circuit, and signal processing, has been recognized as an promising technique to potentiallydouble the spectrum efficiency of point-to-point wireless communication systems. Recently, both academicand industrial efforts have been paid to develop FD testbeds for typical wireless communication systems, suchas WiFi, relay, LTE, and cable access systems.

Although FD techniques have been shown to be powerful, there are still many technical challenges anduntouched issues in this field, such as self-interference (SI) cancellation, simplified realization, link capacity,network level throughput, and protocol design. We organize this workshop to discuss various FD techniqueswith colleagues in the related fields and hope to accelerate technological development of FD systems.
