Chair:

Professor Knud Erik Skouby, Aalborg University, Denmark skouby@cmi.aau.dk

Mission
To promote a secure communications environment across multiple Socio-Economic settings based on user needs and requirements

Overview
WGA is focused on discovering and promoting research areas that strive to understand the needs for and requirements to wireless future internet systems. The activities are based on the understanding that users are driving the creation and design of new, emerging applications and services in a secure environment. This includes the ‘direct’, traditional user requirements area: how the users are driving the creation and design of new, emerging services in a secure environment and how users will interact with devices, systems and applications in the Wireless World. It also includes ‘indirect’ user requirements in the form of ‘M2M’ communications. There is thus recognized an Increasing socio-economic impact on the Wireless development where the Future Internet will represent an increasing fusion between the digital and the physical world. User acceptance of this development requires attention to data protection, privacy and ethical issues. WGA addresses these challenges and investigates the sphere of user requirements and interaction between users, devices, systems and applications and studies the elements of viable business models under different socio-economic conditions.

WG D: Radio Communication Technologies

Chair: Dr Angeliki Alexiou aalexiou@ieee.org

Overview

WGD addresses research aspects focusing on the air interface for wide-area and local-area wireless communication systems, the Internet of Things and the Internet of Senses, spectrum issues and resources management and sharing.

 

WGD covers topics such as smart antenna technologies, cooperative communications, interference management and cell-less architectures, Reconfigurable Intelligent Surfaces and Joint Communications and Sensing. Physical-layer security of wireless systems is also covered in this working group.

 

As wireless networks evolve towards IMT-2030 and beyond, connectivity will be faced with new challenges stemming from critical usage scenarios, both as extreme evolution of well-known 5G usage scenarios (MBB, URLLC, MMTC) and as revolutionary usage scenarios with a clear emphasis on ‘beyond communications’ characteristics. Especially for the latter, capacity and latency may not be the only critical performance targets. Reliability, resilience, and reconfigurability are expected to play a significant role in performance optimization. The objectives of reliable and efficient transmission of bits may be further expanded to also address sensing, situational awareness, as well as immersive and interactive intelligence. Balancing performance with scalability/complexity may prove an important challenge in future networks.

WG HF: High Frequency Technologies

Chair: Dr Angeliki Alexiou, University of Piraeus aalexiou@ieee.org

 

While the wireless world is moving towards the 6G era and many technological advances have been proposed, there seem to be significant limitations in the capability to efficiently and flexibly handle the massive amount of QoS/QoE-oriented data that will be exchanged along with the super-high data rate and almost zero latency requirements. Moreover, there is a clear trend towards perceptive and resilient connectivity, where situational awareness, resilience, sensing agility and reconfiguration intelligence will transform wireless networks towards a ‘beyond just communications’ era.

 

THz connectivity (above 100GHz) as a wireless backhaul extension of the optical fiber is an important building block to high-speed internet access everywhere in 6G. Furthermore, new challenging THz connectivity scenarios are becoming ever more relevant in 6G systems, including: NLOS connectivity based on metasurfaces with the capability to dynamically reconfigure so to track slowly moving users and Ad hoc connectivity in fast moving network topologies, e.g., based on drones or V2X links. Holographic MIMO and Large Intelligent Surfaces in the THz regime offer the potential of shaping/tuning the wireless environment by taking advantage of the wavefront engineering capabilities. Most important, THz wireless connectivity provides an ideal playground for joint communications and sensing, environmental mapping and localization/positioning.

 

Together with extraordinary promises, THz communications bring unique and novel challenges that require rethinking classic communications and networking mechanisms. The root cause for these challenges is the ultra-wideband, the distance dependent bandwidth and the extremely directional nature of THz communications links. Other peculiarities of THz communications include signal and antenna design, channel, and interference modelling. The fundamentally different structure of the interference, due to narrow beams, calls for thorough investigation and detailed modelling of interference. Medium access control (MAC) and radio resource management (RRM) protocols now must operate with pencil beams and, thus, have to be based on completely new principles. Fast handover procedures need to include the time required for discovery, localization and tracking functionalities. The Tbits/s data rates create significant challenges for the transceiver processing including algorithm and architecture design as well as hardware implementation.

 

Motivated by the potential of THz technologies to transform the future of ICT, WG-HF aims to identify the critical technology gaps as well as the appropriate enablers, in terms of baseband processing RF frontend, channel models and waveforms, signals and coding, beam-patterns and medium access control schemes. It aspires to provide a discussion platform/thinktank, by engaging a critical mass of experts from industry, regulators and academia, in order to investigate/understand the trends, requirements, enablers and challenges in the specification, design, optimization and adoption of above 100GHz radio technologies in future wireless networks.

 

The topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following:

 

Transceivers for terahertz communications

Antenna and ultra-massive antenna arrays for Terahertz communications

Electromagnetic Information Theory for Terahertz communications

Channel models for Terahertz communications

Channel estimation techniques for Terahertz communications

Modulation and waveform design for Terahertz communications

Beamforming, precoding and space-time coding schemes

Reconfigurable Intelligent Surfaces

Advanced wavefront engineering

Near field communications

MAC layer design for Terahertz communications

Interference management for Terahertz communications
