IEEE WCNC is one of the main venues for researchers, industry professionals, and academics interested in
the most advanced and recent contributions to wireless communications, especially regarding the
design and development of wireless systems and networks. Sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society,
IEEE WCNC has a long history of connecting industry, academia, and regulatory bodies. In 2019, other than
mesmerizing its visitors by its beauty, Marrakesh as a major city of Morocco will become the premium venue
of the wireless by hosting WCNC'19. The conference will include technical sessions, tutorials,
workshops, and technology/business panels. You are invited to submit papers in all areas of wireless
