IEEE/CIC International Conference on Communications in China
11-13 August 2019 // Changchun, China

W02: ICCC 2019 Workshop on Terahertz Band Communication Networks (TBCN)

Scope and Topics

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.


This workshop will be held part of the IEEE/CIC International Conference on Communications in China (ICCC). The twofold mission of this workshop is to increase the visibility of THz communications and to bring together Chinese 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We seek original completed and unpublished work not currently under review by any other journal/magazine/conference.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 TBCNs
  • Antenna and massive antenna arrays for TBCNs
  • Information theoretic analysis of TBCNs
  • Channel models for TBCNs
  • Channel estimation techniques for TBCNs
  • Energy-efficient modulation and waveform design for TBCNs
  • Beamforming, precoding and space-time coding schemes for TBCNs
  • MAC layer design for TBCNs
  • Interference management for TBCNs
  • Relaying and routing in TBCNs
  • System-level modeling and experimental demonstrations for TBCNs
