Scope and Motivation

Wireless communications is inarguably the most vibrant area in telecommunications today. It has been penetrating our daily lives, spurring growing interest in new driving technologies for tomorrow. Consequently, new technologies for the physical layer, as well as novel MAC and cross-layer design have become crucial to deliver superior wireless networking solutions and services. To promote the advances in wireless communications technologies, the ICC¿10 Wireless Communications Symposium will include topics related to all aspects of physical layer (PHY), MAC layer, cross-layer analysis and design, and physical layer-related network analysis and design. To ensure complete coverage of the advances in wireless communications technologies for current and future systems, the wireless communications symposium seeks original contributions in, but not limited to, the following topical areas.
