Abstract: Future mobile communication systems aim at providing very high-rate data transmission, even under high speed scenarios such as high-speed trains and highway vehicles. High mobility results in rapidly time-varying channels, which pose significant challenges in the design of practical systems, including channel modeling, fast handover, location management, synchronization, estimation and equalization, anti-Doppler spread techniques, coding and network capacity, capacity-approaching techniques, dedicated network architectures, distributed antenna techniques etc. In addition, with the development of vehicular networks, more rigorous performance requirements (e.g., ultra-low latency and ultra-high reliability) are also required for advanced driving applications such as platooning, full automated driving, collective perception of environment and so on, which makes the research and development of wireless systems more challenging. The aim of the International Workshop on High Mobility Wireless Communications (HMWC) is to foster fruitful interactions among communication engineers, information theorists, and system designers interested in high mobility wireless communications, from all over the world, building successful collaborations and bridging the gap between theory and practice.

Pingzhi Fan
Bio: Pingzhi Fan received his MSc degree in Computer Science from the Southwest Jiaotong University, PRC, in 1987, and Ph.D. degree in Electronic Engineering from the Hull University, U.K., in 1994. From 1994 to 1997, he worked for Hull University and Leeds University (UK) as a postdoctoral and research fellow. He is a visiting/guest professor for Leeds University (UK, 1997-), Mikkeli Polytechnic (Finland, 1996), Georgia State University (USA, 2001), FernUniversity (Germany, 2002), National Chonbuk University (Korea, 2003), Tsukuba University (Japan, 2005), and Shanghai Jiaotong University (China, 1999-). He is currently a distinguished professor of the Southwest Jiaotong University, the director of the institute of mobile communications, the director of the International Cooperation Research Centre “Communications & Sensor Networks for Modern Transportation (CSNMT)” (Ministry of Sci & Tech, China), and the honorary dean of the SWJTU-Leeds Joint School. He is a recipient of the UK ORS Award (1992), the NSFC Outstanding Young Scientist Award (1998), Yisheng Mao Rail Sci & Tech Award (2017), IEEE VTS Jack Neubauer Memorial Award (2018), and IEEE SP Soc SPL Best Paper Award (2018). He was the chief scientist of a national 973 research project (MoST, 2012-2016), IEEE VTS Distinguished Lecturer (2015.7-2019.6) and Distinguished Speaker (2019.7-2022.6), and a fellow of IEEE, IET, CIE and CIC.

He served as a general chair or TPC chair of a number of international conferences (including two IEEE technical co-sponsored series conferences, IWSDA & HMWC, for which he is the lead founder), and is the guest editor-in-chief, guest editor or editorial member of several international journals. He is the founding chair of IEEE VTS BJ Chapter and IEEE ComSoc CD Chapter, founding chair of IEEE CD Section. He also served as a board member of IEEE Region 10 (Asia-Pacific), IET Council, and IET Asia-Pacific Region.

He has published over 500 research works, including eight books and edited books published by John Wiley & Sons Ltd, RSP, Springer, IEEE Press, Nova Science Publishers, PHEI and SWJTU Press, respectively, and over 290 English journal (IEEE/IEE/IEICE etc) papers, over 120 Chinese journal papers, as well as over 200 referred international conference papers, etc. He also holds 23 granted Chinese and PCT patents. His publications have received over 12,800 citations (h-index=49, Google Scholar, 28 July 2019,

Shanzhi Chen
Bio: Shanzhi Chen, IEEE Fellow, he received the bachelor’s degree from Xidian University in 1991 and the Ph.D. degree from the Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications, China, in 1997. He joined the Datang Telecom Technology and Industry Group and the China Academy of Telecommunication Technology (CATT) in 1994, and has been serving as the EVP of Research and Development since 2008. He is currently the Director of the State Key Laboratory of Wireless Mobile Communications, CATT, where he conducted research and standardization on 4G TD-LTE, 5G and C-V2X. He has authored and co-authored four books, 17 book chapters, more than 100 journal papers, 50 conference papers, and over 50 patents in these areas. He has contributed to the design, standardization, and development of 4G TD-LTE and 5G mobile communication systems, and C-V2X system. His current research interests include 5G mobile communications, network architectures, vehicular communication networks, and Internet of Things. He served as a member and a TPC Chair of many international conferences. His achievements have received multiple top awards and honors by China central government, especially the Grand Prize of the National Award for Scientific and Technological Progress, China, in 2016 (the highest Prize in China). He is the Area Editor of the IEEE INTERNET OF THINGS, the Editor of the IEEE NETWORK, and the Guest Editor of the IEEE WIRELESS COMMUNICATIONS, the IEEE Communications Magazine, and the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON VEHICULAR TECHNOLOGY.
