“Information Theory and Coding for Future Wireless”

Dalian, China|10-12 August 2023



Information theory, since its introduction by Claude Shannon, has driven the innovation of modern communication technologies for over 80 years. Channel coding is the technology to deliver the information theoretic results, such as channel capacity. It is the most crucial technology for combating channel imperfection, including noise, fading and interference, thus guaranteeing robust data transmission and storage. Capacity-approaching error-correction codes (ECC) have drawn much attention because they can significantly improve the performance of a myriad of communication systems, especially wireless communication systems. Compared with turbo codes, LDPC codes can achieve better performance with easier implementation, and hence have attracted growing interests in both academia and industry. Furthermore, many meritorious variants of LDPC codes, e.g., protograph LDPC codes and spatially coupled LDPC codes, were developed in the past decade. In parallel with the advances in LDPC codes, polar codes were conceived as the first constructive ECCs achieving the capacity. In particular, polar codes outperform LDPC codes in certain scenarios and represent an emerging class of ECCs for future wireless communications. On the other hand, rateless codes were extensively investigated in recent years because they can provide a more flexible way for channel coding. In 5G new radios, LDPC codes have been selected for the eMBB data channels, while polar codes have been chosen for the corresponding control channel. Beyond any doubt, LDPC codes, Polar codes, and other capacity-approaching codes will find more deployment in future wireless applications and will be deployed in more industry standards in the future. On the one hand, how to develop new analysis and design methodologies of modern coding techniques tailored for the next-generation wireless communication systems is still a challenging issue. For example, there is still a non-negligible gap to the finite-length performance limit in the short-to-medium length codes regime, and cost-efficient coding schemes deserve to be further studied. On the other hand, what are the new scenarios and applications that will drive new development in error-correction coding is worth discussion. In both cases, ECCs deserves further exploration in future wireless applications.
