Call for Papers Special Session on Wireless Communications


Information and communications technology (ICT) has significantly progressed which is relying heavily on wireless communications. Currently, most of the devices and systems are connected via wireless technologies and numerous emerging solutions and applications are proposed based on wireless communications. Further, with the introduction of concepts such as Internet of Things (IoTs), nearly countless number of devices will be connected in a global network through wireless interfaces using standard protocol solutions. The connectivity of these plethora of devices will be heavily relying on wireless communications and therefore, the challenges such as scalability, reliability, signal coexistence, data rate and energy consumption faced by the existing systems need to be thoroughly analyzed. In addition, the proposal for 5G technology aims to provide very high data-rates, massive number of devices connectivity, very high reliability and low latencies and therefore efforts are underway to consider beyond state of the art protocols and mechanisms for wireless communication. Thus, the next generation of wireless communication is expected to meet the demands of various challenging use cases that go far beyond distribution of voice, video and data. Therefore, this special session aims to present the solutions that address the challenges wireless communication systems are facing.

Original, high quality contributions that are not yet published, submitted or not currently under review by other peer-reviewed conferences are sought.

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

·  5G technologies ·  Wireless vehicular communications
·  Wireless Sensor Networks ·  Reliable wireless communications
·  QoS requirements of wireless Networks ·  Heterogeneous wireless networks
·  Smart mobility ·  Analysis of the challenges on the existing wireless system
·  Novel Wireless Protocol Designs ·  Energy Efficient wireless communications
·  IoT and Wireless communication requirements


·  Simulation, Field trials/Testbed implementations

Paper submissions will be made via Easy Chair conference management system:
