Call for Papers

The IEEE Radio and Wireless Symposium (RWS 2006) continues the evolution of the successful Radio and Wireless Conference (RAWCON), most recently held in Atlanta, GA, September 2004. This conference maintains an emphasis on interdisciplinary aspects of wireless and RF systems and technology with an emphasis on how pieces fit together to shape the latest developments
in communications technology and enable the convergence of applications. In addition to oral presentations and posters, RWS includes workshops, panels, and a major exhibition. The inaugural RWS 2006 will be held in San Diego, CA, 17-19 January 2006 as part of a week-long major technical event ? MTT Wireless. Also participating in MTT Wireless are the Topical Meeting on Silicon Monolithic Integrated Circuits in RF Systems (SiRF) and the IEEE Topical Workshop on Power Amplifiers for Wireless Communications (PA Workshop).

RWS 2006 sessions will highlight applications including (but not limited to):

3G/4G Wireless Communication including Emergency/Location Services
802.11/HiperLAN2 Wireless LAN Systems
Software Defined Radio/Cognitive Radio and other Emerging Technologies
802.16/LMDS Broadband Fixed Wireless and Last-Mile Access Techniques
Bluetooth/Personal Area Networks
Wireless Sensors and Ad Hoc Networks
802.15/Ultrawideband (UWB) Communication
Low-Power/Low Noise RF/Analog IC and System-On-Chip Solutions
Sessions will cover systems and enabling technologies in the areas of:

System Architecture, Integration, and Convergence Issues
Digital/Analog Adaptive/Collaborative Signal Processing
System Level Design, Modeling, and Simulation
MIMO/Space-Time Processing, Relaying Technology, and Smart Antennas
Signal Generation/Power Amplification, Linearization, and Active Components

Workshop Proposals

Proposals for workshop topics are solicited, and must be received by 6 June 2005. Details on the process and requirements can be found at

Paper Submission Instructions

Authors must submit a summary (not more than 4 pages including figures) electronically using the web page by 7 July 2005; this date is firm, no extensions can be granted. Please indicate your preference for oral or poster presentation format. The preferred file format is pdf; for additional options go to

Submissions will be evaluated for originality, significance of the work, technical soundness, and interest to a wide audience. Authors will be notified by 29 August 2005. Final manuscripts of accepted papers (4 pages in length) must be received by 1 November 2005 to be included in the published Proceedings.

Late News Papers
There will be limited space for Late News Papers, which may be submitted up to 7 September 2005. Submission requirements are the same as above, but the selection criteria are more rigorous. Accepted Late News Papers will appear in the Proceedings, but can not be listed in the Advance Program.
