In this paper, we consider nonregenerative multipair two-way relaying systems, where a relay node supportsK pairs of two-way communications in the presence of imperfect channel state information (CSI).We employ a stochastic approach to model the channel uncertainties and study a robust beamforming design at the relay. It is shown that the proposed beamformer provides a reduction in the computational complexity, as well as good robustness against channel errors, compared with conventional designs. To reduce the estimation overhead at the users, we also suggest an efficient downlink training method to inform the users of the channeldependent self-interference cancellation (SIC) parameters. With the training method, the additive noise may incur a malfunction of the SIC. To address this issue, we develop an intelligent selection criterion that decides whether the SIC should be adopted or not. Finally, from simulation results, we demonstrate the efficiency of our proposed schemes.
