SPAWC 2018 will focus on the areas of:

  • Machine learning and data analytics
  • Physical-layer security and privacy
  • Biological communications and signal processing
  • 5G and beyond

In addition, special session proposals and regular papers are being solicited in the general areas of:

  • Smart antennas, MIMO systems, massive MIMO, and space-time processing
  • Reliable wireless communications for autonomous vehicles
  • Signal processing for ad-hoc, multi-hop, and sensor networks
  • Cooperative communication, coordinated multipoint transmission and reception
  • Distributed resource allocation and scheduling
  • Convex and non-convex optimization; game theory for communications
  • Heterogeneous networks, small cells
  • Millimeter wave, 60 GHz communications
  • Full duplex systems
  • Cognitive radio and networks
  • Cooperative sensing, compressed sensing, sparse signal processing
  • Machine-to-machine, device-to-device communications
  • Modeling, estimation and equalization of wireless channels
  • Acquisition, synchronization, localization and tracking
  • Low latency & delay-limited communications
  • Signal processing for optical, satellite, and underwater communications
  • Energy efficiency and energy harvesting

Three best papers, with students as primary authors, will be recognized at the workshop through a student-paper competition. All invited and regular papers, with up to five pages, will be published through IEEE Xplore. Papers will be submitted via EDAS.
