ICWCUCA 2012: International Conference on Wireless Communications in
Unusual and Confined Areas

Clermont-Ferrand, France, August 28th-30th, 2012

Submission deadline: April 10th, 2012

ICWCUCA 2012 (International Conference on Wireless Communications in
Unusual and Confined Areas) is the third of a series of events
focusing on wireless communications in harsh environments (such as
confined areas, underground tunnels, inside industrial buildings or
vehicles). ICWCUCA is a forum for academic researchers, professionals
and industrial specialists that are interested in innovative
applications or field trials related to telecommunications in such
confined areas.

ICWCUCA was originally dedicated to wireless communications in
confined environments for industrial mining applications. This year,
the conference addresses a broader spectrum including unusual
environments, wireless sensor network applications, and wireless
network applications. An unusual environment refers to an environment
that can be hazardous, costly or hard to reach. Such an environment
can have experienced a natural or industrial disaster, or can be a
remote natural area. It is subject to specific propagation conditions
(as it is the case in mine galleries or inside the human body). In
these conditions, network solutions have to be self-powered, robust
against node losses, deployed quickly, and they have to provide a
service during a long period (usually expressed in years). Thus,
research on wireless sensor networks is a topic for ICWCUCA.
Communication protocols that have limited energy consumption, that are
resistant to losses and that can satisfy the application temporal
constraints, on a peculiar physical medium, are the main expected


This year, the topics include, but are not limited to:
- Propagation and Medium Characterization,
- Modulation and Signal,
- Antenna,
- Wireless Sensor Network,
- Communications for Mine Applications,
- Applications of WLAN and WPAN,
- Modeling, Simulation, Tests,
- Intra-Vehicular and Inter-Vehicular Communications,
- Communications between Life-Monitoring Devices.


All submissions should be written in English, with a paper length
between 4 and 6 pages (including figures and tables). Manuscripts
should be prepared with A4 paper size, 10-point font, and two columns.
Submissions have to comply with standard IEEE conference templates for
LaTeX or Microsoft Word (check the website for templates).
