Call For Papers

Proceedings of the Conference will be published in IEEE Xplore Digital Library and indexed by SCOPUS.

The need for new communication systems to cope with the demand of new services demanding higher performance, larger throughput, wider bandwidth and lower bit-error-rates, requires the development of new methodologies and techniques. Scientific conference RTUWO2016 is focused on the new techniques extending limits of currently used communication systems.
The conference seeks submissions from academia, industry, and government institutions presenting novel research on wireless and optical communication systems. Conference calls for papers describing practical implementation activities, results and issues. Papers describing novel paradigms, original directions, or non-traditional perspectives are also encouraged. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

1. Wireless communications
1.A. Technologies:
Software-defined radio and cognitive radio
Signal processing for wireless communications
Energy efficiency and power management
Smart and mobile antennas and propagation
Practical implementation issues and performance evaluation
Spectrum management and regulatory issues 
Global and local positioning systems in wireless networks
Wireless network security

1.B. Networking:
Intelligent transportation system and vehicular communications
Wireless sensor networks
Machine-to-machine communications
MAC layer and routing protocols
Ad-hoc and cell-based networking
Multiple access and scheduling
Cooperative and distributed communications
Radio resource allocation, bit allocation, power allocation
Performance analysis, QoS and network management

Key dates for the conference are:
Paper submission due: July 4th, 2016 23:59 (GMT)
Notification of acceptance: September 5th, 2016 23:59 (GMT)
Camera-ready due: October 3rd, 2016 23:59 (GMT)

Submission Instructions
The authors are encouraged to submit full papers describing cutting-edge, state-of-the-art, previously unpublished and complete research, not currently under review by another conference or journal.

Papers must be submitted electronically via the EDAS system available at and should be 3 - 6 pages long. Contributions must use double column LaTeX IEEEtran style or the Word template available at and must be handed in as PDF. Detailed submission instructions are available at the RTUWO2016 Conference web page

Proceedings of the Conference will be published in IEEE Xplore and indexed in the relevant databases.

Conference will be held at the Faculty of Electronics and Telecommunications of Riga Technical University, Azenes 12, Riga, Latvia. Riga is a wonderful ancient Hanseatic city on the coast of Baltic sea. Conference event on the vital combination of wireless and optical communications offers an excellent opportunity to network with world specialists and forge new friendships and cooperation with colleagues in Europe, Asia and worldwide.
