Human interaction with technical systems is highly sensitive to delays and interruptions. Thus, in order to
enable completely new applications where tactile and haptic feedbacks are an integral part of the signal
processing chain, the underlying wireless communication networks need to be adapted to our human reaction
time and perception. Some crucial requirements are extremely high reliability and low latency in the order of 1
Existing wireless technologies cannot address those requirements, and hence, new solutions that significantly
improve resilience and decrease latency in wireless communication systems are required. Due to the
challenging requirements of Tactile Internet applications, almost all parts of today’s communication networks
are affected and have to be radically redesigned, ranging from silicon systems, through PHY and MAC layers
to the overall network architecture and cloud computing. Other important cross-layer aspects are security and
carrier-grade reliability to enhance the Quality of Experience (QoE) of users.
This workshop provides a platform for researchers and technical experts to elaborate on the enormous
potentials of the Tactile Internet, to present recent research results, and to provide innovative solutions to make
the Tactile Internet and real-time, highly reliable interaction between humans and technical systems happen.
We highly encourage novel and previously unpublished work.
