The Seventh International Symposium on Wireless Communication Systems

York, The University of York, United Kingdom, 19th-22nd September, 2010

Welcome

The aim of this symposium is to provide a forum for researchers and technologists to present new ideas and contributions in the form of technical papers, panel discussions as well as real- world evaluation of many ideas in wireless communications, networking and signal processing employed to support the needs of the Information Society. This seventh symposium will bring together various wireless communication systems developers to discuss the current status, technical challenges, standards, fundamental issues, and future services and applications. ISWCS'10 seeks to address and capture highly-innovative and state-of-the-art research from academia the wireless industry as well as standardization advances. The scope of the conference includes a wide range of technical challenges encompassing wireless communications, quality of service support, wireless networking, signal processing, cross-layer air interface design for improved performance, wireless broadband access, and cooperative networking. The topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

  • Cognitive radio

Paper Submission Guidelines

Acceptance will be based on an extended abstract or a full paper. In case of an extended abstract submission, diagrams, results, and bibliography have to be provided to allow the reviewers to assess the contribution of your work. All accepted and registered papers included in the final programme will appear in the IEEE Xplore database. In addition to the paper submission, an abstract (approx. 100 words) shall be submitted. The submission has to be performed electronically by April 30, 2010 via the Trackchair system.

Please see the Submission Details page for full details.

Special Sessions

Proposals for special sessions should provide a 200 word summary plus the details of the invited papers; special sessions submissions should be made via email to iswcs2010@elec.york.ac.uk by April 5, 2010.

Tutorials

Proposals for tutorials should consist of a 1000 word summary plus a 150 word abstract with a cover page listing the details of the author(s); tutorial submissions should be made via email to iswcs2010@elec.york.ac.uk by April 22, 2010.

Best Paper Awards

The two best papers of the conference will be awarded prizes sponsored by Wiley.

Workshop on Cognitive Communications (WUN COGCOM 2010)

Future radio communication networks will be heterogeneous in nature and will need to dynamically adapt to changing needs. This will require networks, sub-systems and devices to be increasingly intelligent, i.e. cognitive. The aim of this public workshop, organized by the WUN Cognitive Communications Consortium, is to showcase work being done within the Consortium, while also providing like-minded non-members a forum to present their latest research.
