Call for Papers

The First International Conference on Next-Generation Wireless Systems (ICNEWS'06), will be held on January 2-4, 2006 , in Dhaka Sheraton Hotel, Dhaka, Bangladesh. The objective of this international event is to provide a forum for researchers and technologists to present new ideas and contributions associated with an ever-expanding wireless industry. The scope of the conference includes a wide range of technical challenges in view of the growing interest for wireless access to Internet and the evolution of wireless communications systems for providing ubiquitous Internet connectivity to the mobile users. This conference also intends to bring together the local wireless service providers to discuss the current status, business challenges, and future services and applications in the form of panels.

Authors are encouraged to submit both theoretical and practical results of significance on all aspects of wireless communications and networking systems. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Wireless propagation and channel modeling, antenna technology
  • Wireless access: spread-spectrum, OFDM, multi-carrier modulation, UWB transmission, medium access control protocols, link adaptation and error control techniques, channel assignment/reservation schemes
  • Wireless transmission technology: modulation, channel coding, multi-user detection, software radio, UWB, MIMO systems
  • Digital signal processing (DSP) for wireless applications: space-time processing, adaptive DSP techniques for beam forming applications/noise/interference cancellation, diversity an combining algorithms
  • Wireless WAN and WLAN technologies, wireless mesh networks (WMNs), wireless personal area networks (WPANs)
  • Wireless personal communications systems: 3.5G/4G system concepts, wireless broadband systems, LMDS
  • Wireless security: intrusion detection, detection of malicious behavior, secure PHY/MAC/routing protocols, secure location determination, and denial of service
  • Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) and data fusion
  • Wireless telemedicine and wireless e-health
  • Mobile satellite systems: mobile-satellite communications and networks, GPS for navigation communications, LEO/MEO/GEO systems
  • Mobile computing techniques, wireless grid computing
  • Modeling, simulation, and performance evaluation: queueing analytical models, system modeling and performance evaluation
  • Applications, technology transfer, and socio-economical issues: futuristic public applications of wireless systems, wireless systems for distance education in rural areas, wireless systems for natural resource management and disaster recovery, wireless technology for poverty alleviation.

Important Dates and Instructions:

  • August 15, 2005 : Deadline for Submission of Extended Abstracts
  • September 30, 2005 : Notification of Acceptance
  • October 23, 2005 : Deadline for Submission of Camera-Ready Manuscript
  • October 31, 2005 : Deadline for Paper/Author Registration
  • November 30, 2005 : Deadline for Early Registration (Non-authors)
  • November 30, 2005 : Deadline for Registration for Tutorials

We encourage the authors to submit full papers so that a more critical evaluation of the work is possible during the review process. Also it will increase the chance of a paper to be accepted for presentation. However, if not possible, the authors should submit the extended abstract of the paper (in PDF format only ) at the following email address: . The full-paper/extended abstract should contain the complete contact information of the corresponding author. The final manuscript should be prepared according to the IEEE standard guidelines for preparing manuscripts for major IEEE Conference Proceedings (e.g., IEEE ICC, Globecom). A sample can be downloaded from

The size of the final manuscript should be limited to FIVE letter-sized pages. Papers exceeding FIVE pages will be charged US $100 for each additional page.

Award Papers:  

A few papers among the contributed papers will be selected for the "Outstanding Paper Awards".
