Communications Enabling Shared Understanding

Call for Papers




Terahertz (THz)-band (0.1-10 THz) communication is envisioned as a key wireless technology of the next decade. The THz band will help overcome the spectrum scarcity problems and capacity limitations of current wireless networks, by providing an unprecedentedly large bandwidth. In addition, THz-band communication will enable a plethora of long-awaited applications, both at the nano-scale and at the macro-scale, ranging from wireless massive-core computing architectures and instantaneous data transfer among non-invasive nano-devices, to ultra-high- definition content streaming among mobile devices and wireless high-bandwidth secure communications. Nevertheless, there are many challenges from the device, communication and networking perspectives, which require fundamentally new solutions.

The Third IEEE International Workshop on Terahertz Communications will be held in conjunction with the IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC) in Dublin, Ireland, on June 11 2020. The twofold mission of this workshop is to increase the visibility of THz communications and to bring together researchers from diverse disciplines that can foster and develop this very fast developing field. The workshop aims to attract researchers and academics from various fields of study, ranging from THz materials, devices and packaging, to THz communication and networking researchers.

We seek original completed and unpublished work not currently under review by any other journal/magazine/conference. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Transceivers for Terahertz communications

  • Antenna and massive antenna arrays for Terahertz communications

  • Information theoretic analysis of Terahertz communications

  • Channel models for Terahertz communications

  • Channel estimation techniques for Terahertz communications

  • Energy-efficient modulation and waveform design for Terahertz communications

  • Beamforming, precoding and space-time coding schemes for Terahertz communications

  • MAC layer design for Terahertz communications

  • Interference management for Terahertz communications

  • Relaying and routing in Terahertz communications

  • System-level modeling and experimental demonstrations for Terahertz communications
