Special Session Organizers and Calls

SS1: Delay Doppler Communications and Sensing


Call for Papers

Future wireless networks are envisioned to support ubiquitous connectivity to a wide range of emerging applications, spanning from autonomous cars to unmanned aerial/underwater vehicles (UAV/UUV). This requires novel wireless technology to provide highly reliable data transmission and highly robust sensing simultaneously. However, the strong multipath, high delay, and Doppler features in high-mobility environments can impose great challenges for reliable wireless communications and robust sensing. Consequently, the conventional orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) modulation may fail due to the high dynamical channel fluctuations. The recently proposed orthogonal time frequency space (OTFS) modulation has provided a fundamentally different perspective of waveform design in the delay-Doppler (DD) domain in contrast to the conventional time-frequency (TF) domain designs. Since both functionalities can be unified in the same domain, promising performance over various channels has been shown and the advantages have been widely evident from both academic and industry perspectives. This tutorial aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of the DD domain communications and sensing with specific focuses on its fundamentals, advanced designs, performance analysis, and applications.

The proposed special session aims at bringing together academic and industrial researchers in an effort to identify and discuss the major technical challenges, recent breakthroughs, and new applications related to delay Doppler sensing and communications.

SS2: Energy Harvesting Technologies and Ultra-low power Analogue/RF IC Design for IoT, Radar/Space and 5G/6G Communication Applications


Call for Papers

 The overwhelming challenges of addressing IoT and including the advance ICs for Radar/Space and for the 5G/6G Communication technologies are having significant issue of the physical presence of a battery as a power source drives this research study to do a further investigation on improving circuit design system configurations. Embracing the reality of the today’s global desire of having data information readily available at the tip of your fingers pushes all researchers in the field of extending the density power of batteries, higher power conversion of the scavenge energy, and integrated circuit low-power techniques. Although the predicted multi-billion US$ global market of this IoT technology is a lucrative attraction for everyone, the limited life of the sensor nodes is one of the biggest business hurdles to IoT systems deployment. Henceforth, researchers in the field of information technology, RF communication platforms, software development, semiconductor, circuit design, and sensors aim to make contributions to bring connected devices to match the prediction to the actual numbers deployed.

In this special session, the primary focus is to explore different integrated circuit design techniques on energy harvesting technologies and ultra-low power Analogue/RF IC design for IoT, radar/space and 5G/6G communication applications that can be implemented in standard Si-based technologies, namely CMOS and SiGe, as well as novel active/passive co-design methodologies to continually support not only millimetre-wave application, but also sub-GHz.
