Introduction

Welcome to the IIT Kanpur PYTHON and MATLAB/ OCTAVE-Based Advanced Training School in Orthogonal Time Frequency Space (OTFS) Modulation for 6G Wireless Systems. With 5G systems being rapidly deployed around the globe, there is a significant interest in next generation 6G wireless technologies that break the barriers of 5G. OTFS is a cutting-edge 2D modulation technique that operates in the Delay-Doppler domain, which makes it ideally suited for high mobility and high data-rate 6G networks. This training school will start with a gentle introduction to the basic concepts and feature exhaustive tutorial style lecture modules with the aim of providing the participants a comprehensive exposure to various aspects of OTFS such as System Modeling, Signal Modulation/ Demodulation, Symbol Detection, Channel Estimation and several other analyses, to help kick-start their 6G research/ implementation. The school will also include several intensive supervised PYTHON/ MATLAB/ OCTAVE programming modules so that participants are able to gain practical hands-on experience of working on state-of-the-art 6G projects.

The modules will be held on evenings and weekends. No prior knowledge of PYTHON/ MATLAB/ OCTAVE is required. The school includes introduction to programming in PYTHON/ MATLAB/ OCTAVE, along with TA supervised coding sessions for OTFS projects.

Learn PYTHON/ MATLAB/ OCTAVE Programming and master the latest 6G OTFS technology!

The school follows a well-tested Lecture + Project-based learning approach for complete coverage of OTFS

Procedure for Anaconda, Spider, MATLAB/ OCTAVE installation for windows:

Please note participants are required to use Laptop with PYTHON and MATLAB/ OCTAVE installed. Although participants can use any IDE, preferred installation is ANACONDA and Spyder for PYTHON. MATLAB has to be acquired and installed by participants themselves. Alternatively, participants can use the free software OCTAVE instead of MATLAB.

Detailed stepwise procedure to install ANACONDA Spyder for free on windows platform can be found in document below
Installation document

Once Spyder IDE is running, please run this TEST CODE to make sure your installation is working as expected.

The website for download/ installation of OCTAVE is below https://www.gnu.org/software/octave/index

Please note that it is the responsibility of the participants to ensure that Anaconda, Spider and MATLAB/ OCTAVE are installed and running smoothly prior to start of the program.

Important Notes: The school is self-contained and includes research style lecture sessions with concepts, problem formulation, solution approaches, followed by simulation and verification using PYTHON/ MATLAB/ OCTAVE-based projects for 6G technologies.
