Conference Call for Papers

IEEE WCNC is one of the main venues for researchers, industry professionals, and academics interested in the most advanced and recent contributions to wireless communications, especially regarding the design and development of wireless systems and networks. Sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society, IEEE WCNC has a long history of connecting industry, academia, and regulatory bodies. In 2020, other than mesmerizing its visitors by its beauty, Seoul as the capital of Korea will become the premium venue of the wireless by hosting WCNC‘20. 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. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
