SPAWC 2014 and Information Theory Summer School Announcement

A Call for Papers and participation has been issued for the 15th IEEE International Workshop on Signal Processing Advances in Wireless Communications (SPAWC 2014), which will be held in Toronto, Canada, June 22-25, 2014.The workshop is devoted to recent advances in signal processing for wireless communications, networking, and information theory. The technical program features plenary talks as well as invited and contributed poster papers. The Call for Papers can be downloaded from the SPAWC 2014 website.

This year's SPAWC will also be co-located with North American School on Information Theory, June 18-21, 2014, which is a great opportunity for graduate students and post-doctoral fellows.

Prospective authors are invited to submit papers to SPAWC 2014 in the following areas:

  • Smart antennas, MIMO systems, and space-time coding
  • Single-carrier, multi-carrier, and multi-rate systems
  • Multiple-access and broadcast channels, multi-user receivers
  • Signal processing for ad-hoc, multi-hop, and sensor networks
  • Cooperative communication, coordinated multipoint transmission and reception
  • Distributed resource allocation and scheduling
  • Interference management, dynamic spectrum management
  • Heterogeneous networks, small cells
  • Millimeter wave, 60GHz communications
  • Physical layer security
  • Feedback in wireless networks
  • Cognitive radio and networks
  • Cooperative sensing, compressed sensing, sparse signal processing
  • Ultra-wideband radio, localization, RFID
  • Modeling, estimation and equalization of wireless channels
  • Acquisition, synchronization, and tracking
  • Cross-layer issues, joint source-channel coding, delay-limited communication
  • Signal processing for optical and satellite communications
  • Signal processing for nano- and molecular communications
  • Emerging techniques and technologies

Full papers up to five-page limit should be submitted via EDAS paper submission system. The main deadlines are as follows:

  • March 1, 2014: Paper submission
  • April 30, 2014: Acceptance notification
  • May 10, 2014: Final paper due
