Call For Papers

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to participate in the 20th IEEE International =
Symposium on Power Line Communications and its Applications (ISPLC 2016) to =
be held at the University of Applied Sciences Ruhrwest in Bottrop, Germany =
from March 29 to April 1, 2016.
IEEE ISPLC 2016 will bring together experts and users of power line =
technologies, who will present and discuss state-of-the-art solutions, =
applications, deployment experiences and latest research results for power =
line communication systems.
The conference will focus on key aspects of communications theory, signal =
processing and networking algorithms, standards, measurements, =
implementations, evaluation of field trials and network operation pertaining =
to communication over power lines.

Submissions are invited in, but not limited to, the following areas:
• PLC for smart grids
• Access, in-home and in-vehicle power line networks
• Field trial evaluations, identified problems, required =
• Performance measurements and comparability of field trials
• Channel characterization, modeling, emulation, and experimental =
• Cognitive, cooperative, and autonomous approaches
• Modulation, coding and signal processing for PLC
• MIMO and multi-user PLC
• Electromagnetic compatibility, interference and coupling issues
• Green communications and energy saving concepts for narrow- and =
broadband PLC modems
• Multiple access techniques and protocols for PLC networks
• Multi hop routing in PLC and combined PLC / wireless networks
• Cross-layer optimization and service integration
• System architectures and security issues
• Management tools and documentation for large PLC networks
• Measurement concepts, protocols and tools for PLC modems roll-out
• Quality and interoperability /-changeability tests of chip-sets =
and modems
• PLC standardization and regulation
• Emerging PLC-related technologies

Acceptance of submissions will be based on quality, relevance and =
originality of the work, and the best regular and student submissions will =
be recognized with best paper awards. The conference will include a series =
of keynote and plenary talks as well as an industry forum and special =
sessions on the hot topics for utilities, system integrators and chip =

General Chair: Gerd Bumiller, University of Applied Sciences Ruhrwest, =
TPC Co-Chairs: Lutz Lampe, University of British Columbia, Canada =

Pascal Pagani, Telecom Bretagne, France
Shinji Tsuzuki, Ehime University, Japan

Conference details and updates will be posted on the conference website =

We look forward to hearing from you!
