This workshop explores novel concepts to allow for flexibly centralised radio access networks using cloud-processing based on open IT platforms, exploiting network virtualization and multi-access edge computing technologies that are recognized as key enablers for the definition of future 5G systems. The aim is to allow for a guaranteed high quality of experience for mobile access via efficient management of cloud resources and services, and to allow for a future network evolution focused on energy efficiency and cost-effectiveness. In fact, all future innovative network solutions will be conceived and deployed with a long term perspective of sustainability, both in terms of energy consumption of the mobile network, its related interoperability with terminals and the cost efficiency of the different deployment and management options. This requires new concepts for the design, operation, and optimization of radio access networks, backhaul networks, operation and management algorithms, and architectural elements, tightly integrating mobile networks and cloud-processing. The emerging paradigm of distributed cloud environment is also a key topic. This workshop will cover technologies across PHY, MAC, and network layers, technologies which extrapolate the cloud-paradigm to the radio access and backhaul network, and will analyse the network evolution from an energy efficiency perspective. It will study the requirements, constraints, and implications for mobile communication networks, and also potential relationship with the offered service, both from an academic and industrial point of view.
CLEEN 2019 organizes jointly with 5G Cloud Native Workshop a joint session to go through the latest results and innovations in cloud native technologies and energy efficiency in future mobile systems.

This edition, CLEEN2019 workshop will be organized with a more creative format, conceived with the particular aim to generate lively interactions and foster new ideas. In particular, current shape of the programme agenda is including the Open Forum “Distributed Computing beyond 5G”, that will provide an interactive discussion platform for all stakeholders (from practitioners to experienced researchers and industry leaders), with the aim to encourage collaboration and stimulate a lively interaction, to identify open challenges and research gaps toward new systems (even beyond 5G).
