Reconfigurable Holographic and Intelligent Surfaces for Green 6G Sensing, Communication and Networking

Download Call for Papers

To tackle the sub-6 GHz spectrum congestion and chunky mobile equipment, advanced 6G systems and networks are required to utilize intelligent yet energy- and hardware-efficient techniques for achieving high data rate and low complexity. In 6G systems and networks, reconfigurable holographic surfaces (RHS) can be implemented, which are composed of numerous metamaterial radiation elements integrated in a holographic pattern to generate beams with desirable directions. Besides, reconfigurable intelligent surfaces (RIS) tend to be passive devices which leverage smart radio surfaces with high number of small antennas or metamaterial elements. Multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) antenna setup can be incorporated with RHS/RIS to realize sensing, communication and networking. Machine learning and AI tools can be also explored.

RHS/RIS configurations can be applied across the radio spectrum, from sub-6 GHz to millimeter wave through to terahertz frequencies with massive antenna connectivity. The implementation of RHS/RIS with multiple functionalities of sensing, communication, and networking, provides a new paradigm for Green 6G technology. RHS/RIS can be intertwined with emerging technologies such as internet-of-things (IoT), internet-of-everything (IoE), vehicle to everything (V2X) and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Rate splitting multiple access (RSMA) approach can be also incorporated with RHS/RIS for green and interference management solutions. Our “Workshop on Reconfigurable Holographic and Intelligent Surfaces for Green 6G Sensing, Communication and Networking” will take place at the IEEE SECON 2022. This virtual workshop will provide a forum for sharing cutting-edge contributions to emerging “RHS/RIS aided-Green 6G”. We aim to bring together leading researchers in the field, both from academia and industry, to share their recent findings and views on this topic.

We seek to assemble cross-cutting and high-quality original research papers on topics including, but not limited to:

  • Beamforming, RF optimization, low resolution DAC and ADC sampling for RHS/RIS-Green 6G
  • Interference management, MIMO-RSMA, MIMO-NOMA, MIMO-SDMA for RHS/RIS-Green 6G
  • RHS/RIS for integrated sensing, localization, communication
  • UAV-assisted wireless, IoT, IoE and V2X with RHS/RIS
  • Resource allocation/management, transmission protocols, and wireless powered IoT with RHS/RIS-Green 6G
  • AI, machine learning, deep learning with RHS/RIS-Green 6G
  • RHS/RIS-Green 6G with LEO satellites, satellite networking
  • RHS/RIS-Green 6G with target localization, low probability of intercept, low complexity waveforms
  • MmWave, THz channel modelling with RHS/RIS-Green 6G
