Call For Papers

Technological advances in wireless and satellite communications have made it possible to bring value added services directly to the user by reducing the overall cost as well as addressing many technological challenges such as achieving seamless mobility, security, having miniaturized antennas and terminal sizes, and providing high data rate links. The synergy between satellite and terrestrial wireless networks provides immense opportunities for disseminating wideband multimedia services to a wide range of audiences over large numbers of geographically dispersed people. The services enabled by wireless and satellite systems not only cover the requirements of an ordinary citizen but also has applications in various areas like defence, vehicular, health, etc.
The conference will explore such techniques, and aims to serve as a premier international forum for discussions, bringing together academic and industrial researchers, practitioners, and students interested in future techniques relating to the wireless and satellite communications, networking, technology, systems, and applications.
The conference will consist of various topics:

Primary Topics
Antenna designs, modulation and coding
Synchronization, equalization and channel estimation
Channel modelling for wireless or satellite communications
