RTUWO 2017

Conference on Advances in Wireless and Optical Communications 2017 http://rtuwo.org

Riga, Latvia
2-3 November 2017

Call for papers

Proceedings of the Conference will be published in IEEE Xplore Digital Library and indexed by SCOPUS.

The need for a new communication systems to cope with the demand of new services demanding higher performance, larger throughput, wider bandwidth and lower bit-error-rates, requires the development of new methodologies and techniques. Scientific conference RTUWO'17 is focused on the new techniques extending limits of currently used communication systems. The conference seeks submissions from academia, industry, and government institutions presenting novel research on wireless and optical communication systems. Conference calls for papers describing practical implementation activities, results and issues. Papers describing novel paradigms, original directions, or non-traditional perspectives are also encouraged. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

1. Wireless communications
