Call for Paper



SmartCom2014 is a joint workshop between Singapore and Japan targeting smart wireless communication and covering radio technologies, spectrum management, wireless network, communication theory, and flexible hardware. Due to the recent wireless technology advancement, ubiquitous connection becomes familiar with everyone. However, this also leads to the tremendous growth of wireless data traffic, demanding for higher data rate. Therefore, smart communication technologies to address this data crunch are urgently desired. Its solutions are keys for a sustainable future wireless world. In this workshop, we discuss the solutions targeting not only near future but also years beyond 2020. Expected candidate solutions include small cell, heterogeneous networks including microwave/millimeter wave devices and, dynamic spectrum management, etc. The organizing committee wishes that the workshop provides a great opportunity for discussing a future wireless world and become an occasion to launch cooperative research and joint proposal to international standard.
The topics covered by SmartCom2014 include, but not limited to, the following.


Heterogeneous wireless networks

Ultra broadband small power base stations at higher frequency bands

  • One poster session is in each day, so there are two poster sessions during workshop. Please confirm your poster presentation is assigned to first or second day's session by the final program.
  • One extendable easel and one board are ready for each poster. Please, construct the extendable easel by yourself.
  • Some push pins are assigned to each session for attaching your poster on the board. If you want to use stick tape, you can do it but you bring the stick tape by yourself.
  • We do not intend to announce the start of poster session and poster session is started after lunch time. Therefore, you can ready your poster in the lunch time.
  • We intend to announce the closing of poster session before 10 minutes from the closing time. After this announcement, please finish your discussion, remove your poster from the board, and then shrink the easel to be compact.
