ISWCS 2018, Lisbon, Portugal

August 28, 2018 - September 1, 2018

15th International Symposium on Wireless Communication Systems, 28-31 August 2018, Lisbon, Portugal

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 15th 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.
