Call for papers


SPAWC 2006, the seventh IEEE International Workshop on Signal Processing Advances for Wireless Communications returns to France to celebrate a first decade of SPAWC workshops, with focus on recent advances in signal processing for wireless and mobile communications, as well as for communications in general.


This workshop brings together members of the signal processing, communications and information theory communities, working in universities, research centers and telecommunications companies.


The meeting will feature keynote addresses by leading researchers, as well as invited and contributed papers. SPAWC 2006 will be held July 2-5, 2006 at the hotel Novotel Cannes Montfleury in Cannes on the French Riviera.

Prospective authors are invited to submit papers in the following areas:

  • Source-channel coding
  • Iterative (turbo) decoding, Monte Carlo signal processing
  • Smart antennas, MIMO systems, and space-time coding
  • Modeling, estimation and equalization of time-varying channels
  • Signal separation, and interference rejection
  • Acquisition, synchronization, and tracking (data aided or blind)
  • Fundamental limits on capacity and performance analysis
  • Single-carrier, multi-carrier, and multi-rate systems
  • Multiple access and broadcast channels, multi-user receivers
  • Mobile location
  • Cross-layer issues: from physical to networking layers
  • Signal processing tools for ad hoc, multi-hop, and sensor networks
  • Cooperative transmission and reception schemes
  • Spread-spectrum systems
  • Time, frequency, multi-user diversity in fading channels
  • Ultra-wideband radio
  • Topics in wire-line: signal processing for power-line communications, digital subscriber loops, cable modems
