Welcome to the Communication Theory Technical Committee

The Communication Theory Technical Committee (CTTC) of the IEEE Communications Society is primarily interested in fundamental problems associated with the transmission of information. Of special interest is the novel use of communication theory and/or information theory to solve problems in areas that include (but are not limited to) source and channel coding, storage, modulation, detection, estimation, synchronization, multiple access, interference mitigation, and networking. Communications through all media such as wireless media, wireline, fiber, infrared, optical, magnetic storage, etc. are of interest. Applications, such as wired/wireless/hybrid networks, multi-antenna communications, short range acoustical links, long-distance space communications, voice, data, image, and multimedia transmission, and storage channels are included.

Next Meeting: The next TC meeting is scheduled online on Nov. 17, 2021 (Wednesday) at 10 am Eastern Standard Time (NY, USA).

Welcome to IEEE Communication Theory Workshop 2022

Welcome to the 2022 IEEE Communication Theory Workshop (IEEE CTW 2022). The workshop will be held on May 29 – June 1st, 2022, in Marbella, Spain, in the Mediterranean coast of southern Spain: the most exclusive tourist destination on the Costa del Sol. The continued success of this workshop lies in its informal and highly interactive atmosphere, in contrast to more formal conferences. As always, the workshop will be single track with technical sessions, plenary speakers, panel discussions, and a hot-topics submitted poster session. The technical sessions will consist of invited lectures given by leaders in both academia and industry. For information about CTW 2021 and earlier, please see http://ctw2021.ieee-ctw.org.


Poster Submission Deadline:
1 March 2022

Poster Notification:
1 April 2022

Advanced Registration:
15 April 2022

Ronny Hadani received the Ph.D. degree in Pure Mathematics from Tel-Aviv University. His expertise is in representation theory and harmonic analysis, with applications to signal processing. He is the mathematical visionary who, together with CEO Shlomo Rakib, created Cohere’s ground-breaking Orthogonal Time Frequency and Space (OTFS™) wireless modulation scheme and founded the company. He leads Cohere’s research into the capabilities of OTFS and other advanced wireless technologies and how they can enable the next generation of wireless services. In addition to being Cohere’s Chief Scientific Officer, Ronny continues to serve as an associate professor of mathematics at the University of Texas at Austin, a position he held prior to co-founding Cohere.


Emanuele Viterbo received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the Politecnico di Torino, Torino, Italy, in 1995. He is currently a Professor with the ECSE Department and the Associate Dean of graduate research with Monash University, Melbourne, Australia. From 1995 to1997, he held a Post-Doctoral position at the Dipartimento di Elettronica, Politecnico di Torino. From 1997 to 1998, he was a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow of the Information Sciences Research Center, AT&T Research, Florham Park, NJ, USA. From 1998 to 2005, he was an Assistant Professor and then Associate Professor with the Dipartimento di Elettronica, Politecnico di Torino. From 2006 to 2009, he was a Full Professor with the DEIS, University of Calabria, Italy. He has been an ISI highly-cited researcher since 2009. His main research interests include in lattice codes for the Gaussian and fading channels, algebraic coding theory, algebraic space-time coding, digital terrestrial television broadcasting, digital magnetic recording, and irregular sampling. He is an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Information Theory. He is also the Guest Editor of IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Signal Processing with the Special Issue on Managing Complexity in Multiuser MIMO Systems.
