Title: Method and apparatus for transmitting control information in wireless communications system that supports coordinated multi-point (CoMP) including multiple transmission points

Abstract: The present system relates to a method for transmitting control information in a wireless communications system that supports coordinated multi-point (CoMP) including N (N>1) transmission points. The method comprises: generating control information for downlink transmission of the N transmission points; and transmitting the generated control information to a user device, wherein the control information contains a control information region for transmission of intrinsic control information on a reference transmission point among the N transmission points, and N-1 control information regions for transmission of intrinsic control information on the N-1 transmission points.
