SDR'12-WInnComm-Europe 2012 : Wireless Innovation Forum European Conference on Communications Technologies
Call For Papers
Based on feedback from participants in last year’s event, this third annual conference will expand to include three tracks – one focused on SDR technologies, one focused on Cognitive Radio and Dynamic Spectrum Access technologies, and one focused on CR and SDR programs and requirements. The Wireless Innovation Forum invites you to submit a paper, presentation or tutorial abstract for any of these tracks on topic areas listed to the right.
Presentations will be 25 minutes in duration, including questions. Papers are optional at this event, but are strongly encouraged. Conference proceedings will be made available to attendees containing all presentation and tutorial materials and any associated papers. Proceedings will also be published online for future reference. Papers published in conference proceedings will be peer reviewed, and top papers for this event may be eligible for placement in a leading journal publication (details to be announced).
If your proposal is accepted, you will have the prestige of being chosen to present at this third annual event, and will receive a discount on the workshop fee, allowing you to fully participate in the workshop and network with partners, customers, and competitors.
Top papers will be included in (VLSI) Journal of Signal Processing Systems.
Proposals for each track must include an abstract, the author information, the topic area, and sufficient information to validate the quality and technical depth of the proposal. Topics include (but are not limited to):
Software Defined Radio Technologies, including:
