Signal Processing & Next Generation Communication Systems

Track Co-chair(s):

  1. Prof. Mohammad N. Patwary, University of Wolverhampton, United Kingdom
  2. Dr. Syed Junaid Nawaz, COMSATS University Islamabad (CUI), Pakistan

Signal processing and communications are intimately related research areas that have found applications in many diverse fields such as biomedical sciences, astronomy, hum-robot interaction, defense and security, to name a few. This track deals with both the basic and applied aspects of signal processing and communication systems. Original submissions on related topics are invited from around the globe. The topics of interest include (but not limited to) the following:

  • Digital filter design
  • Stochastic signal processing
  • Adaptive and intelligent signal processing
  • Radar signal processing
  • Image processing and applications
  • Biomedical signal processing and analysis
  • Acoustic and speech signal processing
  • Audio and music signal processing
  • Time-frequency analysis
  • 5G, beyond 5G, and 6G wireless networks
  • 5G testbeds and deployment
  • 6G vision, requirements, and enabling technologies
  • Transceiver design for 6G
  • Centralized and distributed multi-antenna systems (e.g., massive MIMO and cell-free)
  • Vertical applications and massive internet-of-things (IoT)
  • Edge computing (for mobile, IoT, consumer electronics devices)
  • Vehicular communications (underwater, ground, aerial, space, etc)
  • Wireless network softwarization
  • Machine learning for wireless communications (deep learning, transfer learning, end-to-end learning, detection, optimization, etc)
  • Radio reflective technologies-assisted communications (backscatter, symbiotic radio, reflective surfaces)
  • Multiple access techniques (rate-splitting, NOMA, OFDMA, etc)
  • Cognitive radio and cooperative communications
  • Channel coding and modulation techniques
  • Channel modeling and characterization
  • mmWave, sub-teraHz, teraHz communications
