SPAWC 2014: The 15th IEEE International Workshop on Signal Processing Advances in Wireless Communications
June 22-25, 2014 Toronto, Canada

The SPAWC series of workshops provides engaging combination of plenary talks and invited and contributed poster sessions on the development of wireless communications systems, held in an environment that is conducive to the exchange of ideas.

SPAWC 2014 will be held at Hart House, on the campus of the University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada, from 22-25 June 2014.


A special feature of this year's SPAWC is that it will be co-located with North American School on Information Theory, which will be held from 18-21 June 2014, also on the campus of the University of Toronto. This co-location provides a great opportunity for graduate students and post-doctoral fellows to develop new skills and new perspectives, and to bring them to bear on their problems of interest.

Prospective authors are invited to submit papers in the following areas:
• Smart antennas, MIMO systems, and space-time coding
• Single-carrier, multi-carrier, and multi-rate systems
• Multiple-access and broadcast channels, multi-user receivers
• Signal processing for ad-hoc, multi-hop, and sensor networks
• Cooperative communication, coordinated multipoint transmission and reception
• Distributed resource allocation and scheduling
• Interference management, dynamic spectrum management
• Heterogeneous networks, small cells
• Millimeter wave, 60GHz communications
• Physical layer security
• Feedback in wireless networks
• Cognitive radio and networks
• Cooperative sensing, compressed sensing, sparse signal processing
• Ultra-wideband radio, localization, RFID
• Modeling, estimation and equalization of wireless channels
• Acquisition, synchronization, and tracking
• Cross-layer issues, joint source-channel coding, delay-limited communication
• Signal processing for optical and satellite communications
• Signal processing for nano- and molecular communications
• Emerging techniques and technologies

Full papers up to five-page limit should be submitted via EDAS according to the instructions on the paper submission page.
