Call for papers: WISATS 2017

Oxford blogpost

WISATS 2017,  9th EAI International Conference on Wireless and Satellite Systems (formerly PSATS), will take place in Oxford, Great Britain on 24-25 July 2017.

The conference’s central theme is the means of using the wireless and satellite services directly to the user for communications, multimedia and location identification. The services enabled by WiSATS not only cover the requirements of an ordinary citizen but also provide personal defense services such as tracking, visualization, and virtualization in a highly secure communication environment.

Topics of interest include:

· Antenna designs, modulation, and coding
· Synchronization, equalization, and channel estimation
· Channel modeling for wireless or satellite communications
· Advances in Signal processing for wireless or satellite communications
· MIMO communications for wireless or satellites
· Beamforming and MIMO for interference avoidance
· Interference detection and mitigation techniques
· DVB and broadband access technologies
· QoS provisioning and MAC protocols
· Self-organizing mesh networks and autonomic communications
· Multi-resolution channel sensing algorithms
· Networking topologies for broadband over satellite links
· IP over satellite and QoS support
· Reliable multicast protocols, transport protocol over satellite
· Onboard switching and processing Delay-tolerant networking
· Power control, handover issues, and call admission control
· Emerging standardizations and issues
· Satellite navigation systems, services, and tracking
· Real-time multimedia streaming, broadcast/multicasting
· Security related issues of satellite communications
· Radio resource management and dynamic spectrum sharing
· Platforms and architectures for cognitive radio
· Intersatellite links
· Nanosatellites
· Novel satellite-enabled services
· Propagation and mitigation techniques at Ku, Ka, and V-bands
· Satellite architecture
· Satellite payload
· Satellite subsystems and components
· Earth-space communications
· MIMO satellite communications
· Demand Assignment Multiple Access (DAMA)
· Cross-layer air interface design
· Reliable multicast protocols
· Transport protocol performance over wireless or satellite
· IP over satellite Routing protocols
· Game theory applications in wireless or satellite networks
· Onboard switching and processing technologies
· Dynamic bandwidth allocation
· Adjacent and terrestrial interference
· Fade mitigation techniques
· Advanced channel modeling
· Security, privacy, and trust
· Standardisation activities

Secondary topics are available HERE.
