Call for papers

The European Wireless (EW) conference is a key venue for European researchers to get in touch with the latest trends in wireless communications and networking. The 23rd EW conference (EW2017) will take place from May 17 to May 19 in Dresden, Germany, organized by 5G Lab Germany at Dresden University of Technology. The main topic of EW2017 will be “The Way Towards Holistic 5G”.

The Call for paper can be downloaded as a PDF or TXT file as well.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:


  • Fundamental limits, information theory for wireless
  • Modulation and coding: MIMO systems, space-time coding, joint source/channel coding, channel coding, distributed coding and cooperation
  • Multiple access: multiuser detection, spectrum sensing and parameter estimation
  • Interference mitigation and management, localization and positioning, error protection
  • Near-field, Ultra-wideband, Mm-wave, Wired-wireless integration
  • Implementation and testbed: antenna and RF modeling and design, issues in practical and experimental systems
  • Energy: green communications, energy harvesting devices
  • Optimization and game theory, tools for M&A
  • New disruptive concepts for wireless systems


  • Wireless sensors & actuators, vehicular and disruption-tolerant, heterogeneous, wireless ad-hoc, mesh networks
  • Protocols and architectures, QoS and resource allocation, topology control, self-organizing, relays and buffers
  • Implementation: low-cost radio, scalable, sustainable, low-complexity systems
  • Application: Mobile apps and platforms, emerging applications in wireless networks
  • Reliability and Security: privacy and trust in wireless networks, robust and dependable wireless systems

TW Thematic Wireless for EW2017
The Way Towards Holistic 5G

  • Regional visions, requirements and development of 5G (Europe, Asia and America)
  • Industry views of 5G: SME, manufacturers, operators and service providers, business developing for different markets
  • Enabling technologies and novel concepts: SDN/NFV, network coding, compressed sensing, software defined wireless networks and reconfigurability, mobile edge computing, distributed caching
  • Applications and services: development, implementation and validation, cloud computing, 5G test-beds, migration, integration, and convergence
