CALL FOR PAPERS

2nd International Symposium on Wireless Communication Systems 2005
5 - 7 September 2005, University of Siena - Via Banchi di Sotto, 55, Siena, Italy

jointly with

International Workshop on
Satellite and Space Communications 2005 (IWSSC 2005)
September 8-9, 2005, Siena, Italy

The objective 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 testbed implementations and real-world evaluation of many ideas in wireless communications. This second symposium, intends to bring together various wireless communication systems developers to discuss the current status, technical challenges, standards, fundamental issues, and future services and applications in the form of panels and tutorials. ISWCS’05 seeks to address and capture highly innovative and state of the art research from the wireless industry. The scope of the conference includes a wide range of technical challenges in view of the growing interest for wireless access to Internet, the evolution of future wireless communications with access across hybrid platforms, the definition of a crosslayer design for improving the efficiency and the performance of the air interface.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

• Hybrid wireless communication systems
• Radio resource management and allocation
• Wireless access techniques
• Cross-layer air interface design
• Mobile Internet
• Innovation in satellite communications
• Wireless privacy and security
• Wireless services and applications
• Wireless IP
• Wireless network architecture and technologies systems
• Digital signal processing
• MANET
• End-to-End QoS provision
• Coding modulation and equalization
• DVB and DAB techniques
• Novel wireless switching and routing techniques
• Mobility management
• Antenna and RF subsystems
• MIMO
• Traffic control and engineering
• UWB
• Wireless sensor networks
• Innovative services and applications

 

PAPER SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Acceptance will be based on an extended abstract (NOT the full paper) of about 1500 words (two pages in the standard IEEE conference format). The extended abstract should include diagrams, initial results, and other detail required for the reviewers to be able to assess the contribution of your work. In addition to the extended abstract, a short paper description (approx. 150 words). Extended abstract must be submitted electronically by May 1, 2005. For more details, see the Submission Guideline page.

Submission Instructions: The interested author should go under EDAS at the "ISWCS 2005" row and click under submission and management for the row labeled as "ISWCS 2005 Main Symposium".

PANEL SESSIONS & TUTORIALS

Proposals for Tutorial and Panel Sessions are also being solicited. Tutorials (half-day or full-day sessions) are intended to provide in-depth learning on a specific topic of interest to the participants. Panel sessions are 60 minutes long. They present leaders in a particular area discussing a topic of interest to the attendees of ISWCS 2005. Proposals for Tutorials and Panel sessions should consist of 1000 words summary, a 150 word abstract, and a cover page listing the details of the author(s).
