About ComSoc

This committee sponsors and organizes papers, conference sessions, workshops and standards development relating to both optical and metallic guided media transmission and access systems for the transport of speech, data, andvisual information of any bandwidth. Specific areas of interest include: testing and performance of analog and digitally transmitted signals; systems and equipment for subscriber access over fiber, coaxial cable, and twistedcopper pairs; analog and digital subscriber lines over wires and interfaces to wireless media; inductive coordination and electrical protection of wired media; network synchronization; and development of IEEE-oriented standards.

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.
