Title: RECEIVER-SPECIFIC TRANSMISSION LENGTH
Abstract:
Techniques for selecting and utilizing one or more novel symbol structures, control signaling, and scheduling for wireless signal transmission/reception are presented. An example method is presented that includes determining (302), based on control information corresponding to a slot, that a user equipment (UE) (102A) or another UE (102B) in communication with a network node (106) is to transmit acknowledgement (ACK) or negative acknowledgement (NACK) feedback in the slot for a downlink signal received by the UE (102A) or the other UE (102B) in the slot. In addition, the example method includes transmitting (304) an intermediate uplink signal to the network node (106) and/or receiving an intermediate downlink signal from the network node (106) after the downlink signal is fully received and before transmission of the ACK or NACK feedback begins. Example apparatuses, such as UEs and network nodes, and computer programs/code are also presented.
