Summary: With the rapid development of communication techniques, emerging wireless communication techniques like mmWave and MIMO have become popular to support applications which demand a high data rate, such as new standard WiFi and 5G networks. In addition to communication, these wireless signals have been investigated to support sensing with high accuracy, such as activity sensing, people positioning, and object detection.

Summary: With the explosive growth of intelligent terminal equipment, wireless communication networks present ultra-dense characteristics. Ultra-dense Internet of things is an important network and technical application in the scenario of 6G mobile communication. The ultra-dense Internet of things can not only expand the user base and shorten the communication link, but also expand the topology and improve the spectrum efficiency, to improve the network capacity through traffic unloading. With the emergence of ultra-dense Internet of things and the weakening of the traditional macro base stations, wireless communication terminals close to each other can directly communicate and link through D2D (device to device) technology. It could improve data transmission rate, reduce system energy consumption, reduce terminal time delay, improve network coverage, and optimize resource spectrum sharing. D2D refers to the direct communication between devices (users), which can transmit data without passing through any infrastructure node or core network. Most mobile users in current cellular networks need high data rate services (such as video sharing, games, proximity aware social networks, etc.). Among these services, D2D communication has absolute advantages in spectrum efficiency, network throughput and fairness. Therefore, D2D technology has been widely regarded as an important cornerstone to improve system performance and support new services in the future 6G systems.

Over the past decade, with the rapid advances in emerging technologies (e.g. information and communication technology, sensors, intelligent robots), the traditional home/office and manufacturing industry have been undergoing a digital transformation at a tremendous pace. The 5G/WiFi communication standard has enabled ultra-high reliability and low latency communications (URLLC) that enables new ways to work, think, and solve traditional business challenges. Some industrial WSNs communication standards, such as WirelessHART, WIA-PA and WIA-FA, can match the moderate ms level latency requirement in typical Process Automation (PA) and Factory Automation (FA) applications. Currently, the 6G standard is expected to enable the Terahertz communication for purpose of 1Tbps throughput and 100 uslevel latency. In URLLC targeted applications, the message packet length is always short, and the noise in the wireless channel may change in time scale. Thus, techniques such as efficient short packet transmission, noise suppression algorithms, fast channel estimation algorithms and channel coding, are key factors should be seriously concerned.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Efficient short packet transmission technologies, for example modulation, signal processing and channel estimation in URLLC.

Summary:Although fifth generation (5G) is yet to be implemented globally, researchers have been impelled to envision 6G to provide evolving services and applications with high-class execution. The sixth-generation network technology is expected to support huge number of Internet of Things (IoT) devices needed to sustain higher data rates applications. The existing 6GHz band is at present packed by data traffic. The lower transmission band cannot withstand higher data traffic transmission. Communication technology based on the Millimeter Wave (mmWave) is capable of supporting higher data rate transmission but at the cost of consuming high power and high hardware cost, thus violating the low cost design norm of IoT devices.
Researchers have proposed solutions that can provide higher data rate transmission services than the existing IoT based networks with low power consumption and hardware cost than systems based on mmWave. With enhanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies embedded in the 6G
IoT network equipment, it is expected to sustain automation systems, for example driving of automated cars, UAV and industry 5.0.
