Abstract: The vision of future mobile communication systems is to provide seamless high data rate wireless connections for anyone at anytime and anywhere, including the high mobility 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., ultralow 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. Accordingly, the 11th international workshop on High Mobility Wireless Communications (HMWC) aims at fostering fruitful interactions among interested communication engineers, information theorists and system designers from all over the world, building successful collaborations and bridging the gap between theory and practice. Its topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

(1) Theoretical performance (e.g., data rate, delay, reliability, etc.) limits for HMWC systems
Rapidly time-varying channel modeling, estimation and equalization
(2) Fast synchronization
(3) Doppler shift estimation & compensation
(4) Doppler diversity and anti-Doppler techniques
(5) Efficient modulation and detection techniques employed in high speed vehicles
(6) Fast power control
(7) Fast handover and group handover
(8) Fast location update
(9) Highly dynamic radio resource optimization
(10) Coding and network capacity for HMWC systems
(11) Interference utilization and capacity approaching techniques
(12) Multiple access schemes and ultra-low latency protocols for HMWC systems
(13) Ultra-high reliability routing protocols for HMWC systems
(14) Relay, distributive multi-antenna and cooperative techniques for HMWC systems
(15) High-speed vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) radio systems
(16) Communication, Caching and Computation convergence for HMWC systems
(17) Ultra-reliable and low-latency network architectures for high speed environments
(18) 5G-based solutions for HMWC systems
