Call For Papers
IEEE WCNC is the premier event for wireless communications researchers, industry professionals, and academics interested in the latest development and design of wireless systems and networks. Sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society, IEEE WCNC has a long history of bringing together industry, academia, and regulatory bodies. In 2017, the city of San Francisco and the Silicon Valley will become the center of the wireless world by hosting IEEE WCNC’17. The conference will include technical sessions, tutorials, workshops, and technology/business panels. You are invited to submit papers in all areas of wireless communications and networks.
