AIMS AND TOPICS
Internet access is undergoing a fundamental change. More powerful devices and lower cost radio technologies are facilitating the transition to the Mobile Internet where users can access through different devices and access technologies a diverse range of services and applications anytime, anywhere. However, the huge increase in demand that this brings cannot easily be met by current radio access systems. Hence, there is a need for more powerful, more efficient, higher speed, lower cost radio technologies and architectures for Broadband Wireless Access.
There is significant effort within the community to develop more advanced BWA technologies - activities span the wireless domain, ranging from more advanced antenna technologies and cooperative relays, to mesh networking systems and many more: future networks will likely employ some mix of these different mechanisms. We anticipate that the 4th edition of the workshop will continue the success of the previous editions, providing a forum for the exchange and discussion of new research results and practical experiences working with innovative technologies in the domain of Broadband Wireless Access. The workshop is soliciting contributions in a broad range of topics including, but not limited to, those listed below.Incumbent and Future BWA Technologies, UMTS, HSPA, LTE, LTE-Advanced, 802.16x
Submitted papers must represent original material that is not currently under review in any other conference or journal, and has not been previously published. All submissions should be written in English with a maximum paper length of five (5) printed pages (10-point font) including figures without incurring additional page charges (maximum 1 additional page with overlength page charge if accepted )..
Note that the maximum number of pages for a paper is 6; 5 pages plus 1 additional page allowed with a charge for the one additional page of USD100 if accepted. Papers exceeding 6 pages will not be accepted at EDAS, nor reviewed at all. Please see the Author Information page for submission guidelines in the IEEE GLOBECOM 2011 website..
The paper should be used as basis for a 15 minute workshop presentation. Papers should be submitted in pdf format by selecting Globecom 2011 workshops at EDAS paper submission website, and then selecting the BWA-Workshop submission link.
All submitted papers will be reviewed by up to three experts and if accepted, published in the conference proceedings, which will be available at IEEEeXplore and registered in Engineering Index (EI).
At least one author of accepted papers is required to register at the full registration rate.
