This paper thoroughly reviews and analyzes the main characteristics and application portfolio of the so-called Harmony Search algorithm, a meta-heuristic approach that has been shown to achieve excellent results in a wide range of optimization problems. As evidenced by a number of studies, this algorithm features several innovative aspects in its(More)
Millimeter wave (mmWave) communications have been postulated as one of the most disruptive technologies for future 5G systems. Among mmWave bands the 60-GHz radio technology is specially suited for ultradense small cells and mobile data offloading scenarios. Many challenges remain to be addressed in mmWave communications but among them deafness, or(More)
This manuscript focuses on the increasing frequency and scales of worldwide wildfires and the need for enhancing the effectiveness of firefighting resources. The scope is focused on optimally deploying firefighting aircrafts on aerodromes and airports existing over an area based on fire risk predictions. This scenario is formulated as a capacity-constrained(More)
In vehicular scenarios context awareness is a key enabler for road safety. However, the amount of contextual information that can be collected by a vehicle is stringently limited by the sensor technology itself (e.g., line-of-sight, coverage, weather robustness) and by the low bandwidths offered by current wireless vehicular technologies such as(More)
