Constrained by quality-of-service (QoS), a robust transceiver design is proposed for multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) interference channels with imperfect channel state information (CSI) under bounded error model. The QoS measurement is represented as the signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR) for each user with single data stream. The problem is formulated as sum power minimization to reduce the total power consumption for energy efficiency. In a centralized manner, alternating optimization is performed at each node. For fixed transmitters, closed-form expression for the receive beamforming vectors is deduced. And for fixed receivers, the sum-power minimization problem is recast as a semi-definite program form with linear matrix inequalities constraints. Simulation results demonstrate the convergence and robustness of the proposed algorithm, which is important for practical applications in future wireless networks.
