With the successful orgnazation of 1st THz-ISAC workshop, 2nd THz-ISAC workshop will keep exploring the frontier of THz-ISAC research with both academia and industry. It is worthwhile investigating the technical challenges bringing up by new applications/use-cases and new deployment scenarios under discussion in ITU for 6G. And as future technologies trend of 6G, potential solutions are still needed for domain from fundamental theories to component and system design. It is necessary to motivate the exploartion on a). innovative design for air interface, especially jointly design for both communicaiton and sensing; b). fundamental communication theory to expending capability of 6G in this promising domain; c). high accuracy positioning, imaging based on THz; d). hardware and component design to enable innovative design for 6G terminal; e). Material charateristics study which impacting performance of THz-ISAC; f). Specific design for vertical use case like industry 4.0.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Terahertz channel modelling and propagation
  • Performance evaluation methodologies on THz sensing
  • Air-interface design of THz systems 3 / 4
  • Waveform design for THz sensing and communication
  • Enhance MIMO and antenna arrays for THz systems
  • Integrated THz communication and sensing systems
  • Low complexity THz communication system
  • THz imaging, positioning/localization, THz spectroscopy
  • Transceivers and components for THz systems
  • Antenna and arrays design for THz systems
  • Low complexity digital signal processing
  • Experimental hardware design and implementation
  • THz and ISAC enabling Industrial 4.0
  • Prototype and trial activity for THz and ISAC
  • Material characteristics study which impacting THz-ISAC
  • Emerging/new basic science phenomena for THz sensing and communication
