Track 2 – Wireless Communications


  • Fernando Velez (Instituto de Telecomunicações and Universidade da Beira interior)


The Wireless Communications Track aims at covering all aspects related to wireless communications and its applications, with a focus on topics related to physical layer (PHY), MAC layer, cross-layer, and physical layer-related network analysis and design.

The purpose of this track is to bring together researchers, engineers, and students from academia and industry, to discuss, share their experiences and exchange new ideas about theoretical and practical aspects of wireless communications. We solicit original and unpublished research in all aspects of wireless communications, including, but not limited to, the following topics:

  • Advanced equalization, channel estimation and synchronization techniques
  • Antennas, smart antennas, and space-time processing
  • Cross-layer design and physical-layer based network issues
  • Device-to-device and machine-to-machine communications
  • Distributed, relay assisted, and cooperative communications
  • Energy efficient PHY layer design, energy harvesting
  • Heterogeneous and small-cell networks
  • Hybrid communication systems (e.g. satellite/terrestrial/wireline hybrids)
  • Information-theoretic aspects of wireless communications
  • Interference modeling, management, cancellation, and alignment
  • MIMO, multi-user MIMO, and massive MIMO
  • Modulation, coding, diversity, equalization, synchronization
  • Multiple access techniques and air interfaces (CDMA, TDMA, FDMA, OFDMA)
  • OFDM and multi-carrier systems
  • Physical-layer network coding
  • Physical-layer security
  • Physical-layer design for cellular, wireless LAN, ad hoc, and sensor networks
  • Radio resource management
  • Signal processing for wireless communications
  • Ultra wideband, mmWave, and sub-THz communications
  • Underwater communications
  • Wireless communications testbeds, field tests, and measurements
