IEEE/CIC ICCC 2022 Workshop on OTFS and Its Two-dimensional Modulation Extensions for High-mobility Communications

Scope and Topics:

As existing wireless communication design principles and technologies were mainly for low-mobility channel characteristics at a low carrier frequency, OTFS and its two-dimensional modulation extensions introduce new critical challenges for transceiver architecture and algorithm designs. To fully unleash the potential of OTFS and its two-dimensional modulation extensions, challenging fundamental research problems and many practical design issues must be addressed, including code design, channel estimation, detection techniques, and multiple antenna and multiple user systems design. This workshop 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 OTFS and its two-dimensional modulation extensions. This workshop will be an ideal venue for researchers to discuss new results related to OTFS, which will substantially advance and enrich the knowledge base in the field of two-dimensional modulations for high-mobility wireless communications. We expect that the workshop will further foster collaborations amongst researchers, engineers, and PhD students working on OTFS and related areas.

We seek original completed and unpublished work not currently under review by any other journal/magazine/conference.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:

  • Channel measurement and modeling in the DD domain
  • Fundamental information theoretical limits for OTFS
  • Capacity scaling of OTFS system for multiple antenna and multiuser systems
  • Signal processing for OTFS transceiver designs
  • Channel estimation for OTFS
  • Receiver design for OTFS
  • Machine learning/AI enhanced OTFS
  • MIMO and massive MIMO design for OTFS
  • Multiple access schemes and resource allocations for OTFS
  • Network architectures and transmission protocols  for OTFS
  • System-level simulation, prototyping, and field-tests for OTFS
  • Standardization of OTFS
  • Joint sensing and communication via OTFS
  • DD domain and TF domain filter designs for OTFS
  • Transmit and receive window designs for OTFS
  • Coded OTFS system performance analysis
  • Coexisting of 5G and OTFS signaling
  • FDD and TDD OTFS systems
  • OTFS for URLLC
