IEEE WCNC 2013 to Explore Latest Wireless System & Networking Advances from 7 – 10 April 2013 in Shanghai, China

Premier International Forum Announces 22 September 2012 as “Call for Papers” Deadline

New York, NY, August 08, 2012 --( The IEEE Wireless Communications and Networking Conference (WCNC), the leading international event dedicated to the advance of global wireless system and networking technologies, has announced September 22, 2012 as the “Call for Papers” deadline for its next annual conference to be held April 7 – 10, 2013 in Shanghai, China. Sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc), IEEE WCNC 2013 is devoted to providing industry professionals, academics and researchers with a premier, four-day learning experience that explores the entire range of wireless technologies including emerging wireless and mobile applications, energy-efficient network designs and dynamic spectrum access protocols.

“As one of the world’s leading financial, commercial and industrial centers, Shanghai offers the perfect locale for discussing and advancing the next generation of wireless technologies that are actively reshaping the lives of more than seven billion people worldwide,” says Professor Xiaohu You, IEEE WCNC 2013 General Chairman. “We are committed to providing the highest-quality schedule of presentations, while offering attendees the opportunity to experience the City’s truly stunning blend of modern, traditional, western and oriental amenities.”

Commencing Sunday 7 April, IEEE WCNC 2013 is expected to host more than 600 keynotes, panels, tutorials, workshops and technical sessions detailing nearly every area of wireless communications ranging from networking and services to application and deployment. Among the leading authorities already scheduled for this event are Professor Fumiyuki Adachi of the Tohoku University in Japan, who will speak on “Spectrum & Energy-Efficient Distributed Antenna Network for Future Wireless Communications;” Dr. Chih-Lin I, Chief Scientist of China Mobile Inc., who will address “Towards Green and Soft;” Professor Victor O.K. Li of The University of Hong Kong, China, who will discuss “Can Wireless Technologies Save the Environment?;” and Professor P. R. Kumar of Texas A&M University in the United States, who will talk about “A Clean Slate Approach to Security of Wireless Networks.”

All professionals interested in presenting at IEEE WCNC 2013 are urged to visit for more conference information and detailed submission guidelines. Original, unpublished papers will be considered in nearly every communications area related to the development and design of wireless systems and networks.
