Call For Papers

Topics of Interest
In order to meet the immensely higher data rate, reliability, and traffic demands in the future 5G-Advanced communications, novel communication frameworks are rapidly emerging to fully utilize the electromagnetic waves, including holographic MIMO, extremely large antenna arrays, reconfigurable intelligent surfaces, etc. The ultimate limitation of the channel capacity and the ways to achieve this capacity are two fundamental questions in the system design. However, current design and performance analysis methods are usually based on the scalar-quantity, far-field, planar-wavefront, monochromatic and other nonphysically-consistent assumptions, which may cause mismatch between the system design and the realistic propagation environment.

To solve this problem, the emerging electromagnetic information theory (EIT) is proposed and has attracted increasing interests from both academia and industry. By integrating the statistical information theory with the deterministic electromagnetic theory, it is able to build a more physically consistent communication model and establish more fundamental limitations on the communication systems. It is expected that EIT will bring brand new theoretical analysis and system design paradigms to the future wireless communications.

While research into EIT for the future wireless communications are still in the early stage, this workshop calls for contributions on the following topics of interest, including but not limited to:
EIT based Theoretical Analysis
 Channel capacity analysis
 Degree of freedom of the time, frequency, and spatial domain
 Characteristic mode analysis
 Performance evaluation
EIT based Channel Modeling
 Physics consistent channel modeling
 Computational electromagnetics based channel modeling
 Circuit theory based channel modeling
 Reactive near field, radiating near field and far field channel modeling
EIT based Signal Processing
 Beamforming for both near and far field
 Channel estimation for both near and far field
 Interference cancellation
 Joint system optimization
EIT based Antenna Design
 Holographic MIMO, continuous-aperture MIMO
 Extremely large antenna arrays, large intelligent surfaces
 Reconfigurable antennas, reconfigurable intelligent surfaces
 Electromagnetic metasurfaces
