Scope and Topics

The vision of future mobile communication systems is to provide seamless high data rate wireless connections for anyone at anytime and anywhere, including the high mobility scenarios such as high speed trains and highway vehicles. High mobility results in rapidly time-varying channels, which pose significant challenges in the design of practical systems, including channel modeling, fast handover, location update, synchronization, estimation and equalization, anti-Doppler spread techniques, coding and network capacity, capacity-approaching techniques, dedicated network architectures, distributed antenna techniques and etc. In addition, with the development of vehicular networks, more rigorous performance requirements (e.g., ultra-low latency and ultra-high reliability) are also needed for advanced driving applications, such as platooning, full automated driving, collective perception of environment and so on, which adds more challenges for the research and development of wireless systems with high mobility. To deal with these challenges, the 7th international workshop on High Mobility Wireless Communications (HMWC) aims at fostering fruitful interactions among interested communication engineers, information theorists and system designers from all over the world, building successful collaborations and bridging the gap between theory and practice. Its topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
iconTheoretical performance (e.g., data rate, delay, reliability, etc.) limits for HMWC systems
iconRapidly time-varying channel modeling, estimation and equalization
iconFast synchronization
iconDoppler shift estimation & compensation
iconDoppler diversity and anti-Doppler techniques
iconEfficient modulation and detection techniques employed in high speed vehicles
iconFast power control
iconFast handover and group handover
iconFast location update
iconHighly dynamic radio resource optimization
