Future wireless networks are expected to transform to a unified communication, sensing, and computing platform with embedded intelligence and programmability, enabling ubiquitous communications between humans, robots, and other mobile devices. They will also be capable of controlling, sensing, and optimizing the wireless propagation environment to fulfill the visions for low-power, high-throughput, massively-connected, and low-latency communications. Following the recent breakthroughs on the fabrication of programmable metamaterials, the holographic MIMO paradigm has lately received significant attention from both academia and industry due to its low cost, size, and weight, as well as low-power consumption hardware implementations, providing a transformative means for turning the wireless environment into a software-controlled intelligent platform.
We seek original completed and unpublished work not currently under review by any other journal/ magazine/conference.
A number of new challenges are emerging, triggered by this novel design paradigm. Despite having drawn huge attention from both academia and industry, many open problems are still to be investigated. This workshop aims at bringing together researchers from academia and industry to identify and discuss the major technical challenges, recent breakthroughs, and novel applications related to ISAC and multifunctional network.
We seek original completed and unpublished work not currently under review by any other journal/ magazine/conference.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:
- Physics- and electromagnetic-compliant modeling of holographic MIMO communications.
- Experimental results and testbed implementations of holographic MIMO systems.
- Communication-theoretic foundation of holographic MIMO.
- Fundamental performance limits of holographic MIMO communications.
