The aim of this symposium is to provide a forum for researchers and technologists to present new ideas and contributions in the form of technical papers, panel discussions as well as real-world evaluation of many ideas in wireless communications, networking and signal processing employed to support the needs of the Information Society. This twelfth symposium will bring together various wireless communication systems developers to discuss the current status, technical challenges, standards, fundamental issues, and future services and applications. ISWCS’15 seeks to address and capture highly-innovative and state-of-the-art research from academia, the wireless industry as well as standardization advances. The scope of the conference includes a wide range of technical challenges encompassing wireless communications, information theory, quality of service support, networking, signal processing, cross-layer design for improved performance, and future wireless broadband systems.
