The technological evolution of the wireless cellular systems has been very rapid in last two decades. In the coming decade of "converging wireless networks/systems/ecosystems", there is an increasing demand on achieving very high data rates ubiquitously even with high mobile speeds as if we connected to a wired ADSL! Radio Resource Management (RRM) for the emerging wireless systems will be the key mechanism for achieving such high data rates. Indeed, RRM has already been a hot research area in both academia and industry for decades. And due to the complexity of the emerging wireless systems, an interdisciplinary approach and/or methodology is needed to tackle the new RRM challenges. In this paper, we provide a control engineering view onto some of the RRM challenges in emerging wireless networks, with a special emphasis on distributed power control. For example, we establish a link between power control design and dynamic neural networks, two different areas whose scope of interest, motivations and settings are completely different. Here, we emphasize the importance and the need of interdisciplinary approach. Some subjects to be addressed within the paper shall include future-generation cellular/ "noncellular" systems, radio resource management challenges, energy efficiency and distributed power control algorithms, variable-structure-systems based power control, channel/frequency allocation, spectral-clustering based channel allocation, Hopfield neural networks.
