Call For Papers

Advances in Communication Technologies and their applications to vehicular communications for intelligent transportation systems, cognitive radio network for dynamic and efficient spectrum sharing, and sensor networks for sensing and monitoring applications have generated interest from both industry and academia.

ACTICS'2017 will bring researchers and experts together to present and discuss the latest developments and technical solutions concerning various aspects of advances in communication technologies. ACTICS'2017 seeks original unpublished (both review/survey and technical) papers focusing on theoretical analysis, emerging applications, novel system architecture construction and design, experimental studies, and social impacts of communications technologies.

Topics of interest include but not limited to:

Network architectures and protocols
Mobility management and topology control
Performance modeling and analysis
Medium access control and routing protocols
Information aggregation and dissemination
Cognitive radio enhanced vehicular communications,
Security, trust and privacy issues
Applications, case studies, and real-world test beds
Power aware and energy efficient design
Remote sensing and monitoring (health care, space structure, environments, hazards etc.)
Complexity analysis, self-organization/configuration, distributed co-ordination etc.
Application of software defined radio in advanced communication systems
Cross-layer designs and architectures
Self-organizing networks and autonomic communications
Ultra-wideband technologies
Beam-forming and MIMO for interference avoidance in the CR context
Biological-inspired networking
Adaptive wireless communication systems
Spectrum sensing techniques, spectrum efficiency and soft spectrum usage
Parameter estimation for adaptation of wireless communication systems
Network economics and game theory
Interference mitigation and awareness
Spectrum-management regulation and policy making
Standardizations such as IEEE 802.22, 802.19, 802.11n, 802.11p, etc
Sensor Networks, MANET, VANET and routing protocols


The authors are advised to submit their research paper following the Conference Publishing Service Manuscripts style: two columns, single-spaced, including figures and references, using 10 fonts, and number each page. Instructions for authors how to format the manuscript can be found at:

The papers should not exceed 6 pages. They will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of exposition. The papers, in pdf format, should be submitted electronically through If there is any problem during submission, please contact the workshop chairs.
Accepted papers will be given guidelines in preparing and submitting the final manuscript(s) together with the notification of acceptance. Proceedings of the workshop along with the IMIS-2017 will be published by Conference Publishing Service (CPS).
