CALL FOR PAPERS

In 2020, mobile and wireless traffic volume is expected to increase thousand-fold over 2010 figures. Moreover, an increase in the number of wirelessly connected devices to count in the tens of billions will have a profound impact on society. Massive machine communication, forming the basis for the Internet of Things, will make our everyday life more efficient, comfortable and safer, through a wide range of applications as, e.g., traffic safety and medical services. The variety of applications and traffic types originating from or reaching mobile, WLAN, and sensor networks, will be significantly larger than today, and will result in more diverse requirements on services, devices and networks.

 

To meet the demands beyond 2020, a system that broadens the usability of today’s wireless networks is needed. Fundamentally new concepts and design approaches are needed, and these must be integrated into systems that provide the necessary flexibility, versatility and scalability at low cost and low energy dissipation. This workshop presents a forum for researchers and industry to meet, share views and exchange ideas on needs, possibilities and challenges in next generation global mobile and wireless communication systems.

 

We seek original and unpublished papers on system concepts, scenarios & applications, and technical enablers including, but not limited to:

 

    • Device-to-Device communication
    • Machine-Type Communication/Massive Machine Communication
    • Ultra-reliable networks for automatic control, disaster relief and NSPS
    • Moving networks and Vehicular-to-anything communication
    • Ultra-dense deployments
    • Radio network architectures including beyond cellular
    • Self-organizing networks and distributed features
    • Energy efficient networks
    • Network and Massive MIMO
    • Network coding
    • Efficient air interfaces and optimized radio access
    • Interference metrics, measurements and management
    • Efficient demand, traffic or mobility management
    • Millimeter-wave communication
    • Spectrum analysis, access and sharing models
    • Cognitive radio networks
    • QoS provisioning and MAC protocol
    • Trust and security
    • Experimental prototypes and results related to the topics above


Important dates:

  • Submission of papers: 7 December 2012
  • Notification of acceptance: 30 January 2013
  • Final paper submission: 21 February 2013

Submission guidelines:

Accepted papers will be presented either orally or on posters, and published in the conference proceedings and on IEEE Explore.
