About ComSoc

The Tactile Internet (TI) sub-committee will focus on exploring and elucidating all facets of the next generation of “Tactile Internet” technology, business and societal gaps and challenges. The objectives of the TI Sub-committee are to facilitate the worldwide harmonization of research, pre-standardization and best practices for deployment user scenarios of the global TI ecosystem, to design the built-in security and privacy and to explore ways the tactile technology can be realized in different segments such as in engineering, automobile, transport and logistics, health service, and public. The TI Sub-committee will target the understanding of the tactile requirements, the specification and identification of tactile use cases, defining system specifications to meet these requirements, developing breakthrough technology to the identified challenges of the tactile internet, and enabling of Internet protocols over the next generation of empowered devices in order to reach convergence and end to end transparency through IPv6.

Best Readings in Polar Coding

In this Best Readings, we summarize several papers on the theoretical foundations of polarization theory, the construction and decoding of practical polar codes, as well as some generalized polar codes, which can help to overcome limitations of classical Arıkan polar codes. We also focus on practical implementation issues because, despite the simple structure of the encoding and decoding algorithms of polar codes, their practical implementation poses numerous challenges.
