The global IP traffic is expected to reach 400 exabytes by 2022 (Cisco), which requires high bandwidth and capacity links to facilitate future traffic demands. The lower frequency bands cannot meet these requirements. Therefore, the interest is being shifted towards more potential bands like Terahertz band, which can provide up to Tera bites per second (Tbps) speed with huge bandwidth availability. Due, to the high bandwidth availability, it appears as a promising technology for 5G and beyond 5G networks and can be used to fulfil the future traffic demands for many indoor and outdoor communication networks.

Besides providing the ultra-high bandwidth availability, the Terahertz band also suffers from high path loss and molecular absorption loss which affects the achievable communication distance and throughput. To enhance the communication distance, directional antennas are required with multiple antennas and beam management techniques. Due to these unique band features and requirements like path and molecular absorption loss, scattering and reflection phenomenon, novel techniques are required for Terahertz communication networks at nano and macro scale including indoor and outdoor applications. These applications includes channel and propagation model for different indoor and outdoor applications; physical layer techniques including modulation and coding, frame error control and bit error rate; MAC layer techniques including link establishment, error detection and correction, interference mitigation, resource management, blockage mitigation, and addressing; and network layer techniques for routing and end to end network efficiency.

This book will highlight the advancement in Terahertz communication networks and services for future generation communication networks. The book will also discuss different Teraertz applications and novel communication layer protocols.

The recommended topics include, but are not limited to the following,

• Recent advancements in Terahertz communication networks with applications and their requirements towards next generation networks
• Terahertz channel and propagation models for different indoor, outdoor and in body applications with noise, absorption, multi path, and other loses.
• Channel characteristics and measurements
• Blockage, Noise and interference models
• Ultra-massive MIMO
• LOS and NLOS propagation
• Advancement in Terahertz transceivers
• Device characterisations
• Advancements in Terahertz antenna design and their performances
• Multi-band and ultra-broadband antennas
• Antenna arrays, MIMO, Very large array antenna, Phased array antenna, Directional antennas
• Novel Terahertz Communication protocols
• Novel techniques on Terahertz Physical layer including, modulation and coding techniques, link capacity and budget, massive MIMO, Beamforming and management, synchronization
• Novel techniques on Terahertz MAC layer using directional antenna including channel access control, error and flow control, efficient link establishment and energy efficient mechanisms,
• Novel techniques for network layer including routing, multihop, handover management, relay-based communication
• Simulation and testbeds for Terahertz communication networks

Submission Procedure,
