COVID-19 notice, updated 02 February 2021

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to hold ISWCS 2021 as a fully virtual conference. We look forward to your contributions to the conference and to seeing you at the virtual conference in September!

Previous notice

We send our thoughts to those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Considering the recent growth and uncertain future developments, and with the health and safety of our participants in mind, we have decided to postpone ISWCS 2020 by one year. Therefore, the conference will be held on the 6th to 9th of September 2021, in Berlin, Germany. The conference deadlines will be postponed accordingly. We look forward to seeing you at ISWCS 2021 in Berlin!

Please read the submission guidelines below before submitting your paper.

Submission Guidelines

The aim of this symposium is to provide a forum for researchers and technologists to present new ideas and contributions in the form of technical papers, panel discussions, as well as real-world evaluation in the field of wireless communications, networking and signal processing.

This 17th symposium will bring together various wireless communication systems developers to discuss the current status, technical challenges, standards, fundamental issues, and future services and applications.

Accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.

Prospective authors are invited to submit high-quality original technical papers (max 6 pages, 10 point font size) for presentation at the conference and publication. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the ISWCS 2021 Proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore.

We reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (including its removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference.

Papers are reviewed on the basis that they do not contain plagiarized material and have not been submitted to any other conference at the same time (double submission). These matters are taken very seriously and we will take action against any author who engages in either practice. Follow these links to learn more:

IEEE Policy on Plagiarism

IEEE Policy on Double Submission

To be published in the ISWCS 2021 proceedings and to be eligible for publication in IEEE Xplore, an author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference at the full rate and the paper must be presented by an author of that paper at the conference. Exceptions may be granted by the General Chair prior to the event.

All papers should be submitted via EDAS, using standard IEEE conference templates. The page length for all submissions is six (6) printed pages in 10 point font and must be written in English. It is the authors' responsibility to ensure that the author list, the paper title and the abstract of the submitted pdf file is an exact match to the information entered on the EDAS registration page. Please be aware that the author list cannot be changed in the final manuscript.

Call for Tutorials

You can find the Call for Tutorials  here .

Submission Guidelines

ISWCS 2021 will feature both invited and selected tutorials on emerging topics of interest to the wireless communications society. We therefore solicit proposals for half-day tutorials (approximately 2h30min + 30min break). Proposals should not exceed four pages, and they should include the following information:

  • Title
  • Abstract (250 words)
  • Importance and timeliness
  • Description - material to be covered, depth, and schedule
  • Target audience - prerequisite knowledge of attendees
  • Presenter(s) biography, including information about previous tutorials and a list of recent papers related to the proposed topic
  • References

Tutorial proposal due : March 12, 2021 extended to April 12, 2021

Notification of acceptance : May 7, 2021 delayed to May 21, 2021
