The latter will also be solicited to contribute in the following additional key components of the conference program:

  • Special Sessions/Workshops: We invite experts in the field to submit proposals for special sessions and full‐ or half‐day workshops. Proponents are encouraged to organize special sessions and workshops that explore new and emerging trends in wireless broadband, focus on industry applications and/or discuss areas not covered in the general call for papers, but of general interest to ICUWB’s audience.
  • Tutorials: We invite experts in the field to submit proposals for full‐ or half‐day tutorials of interest to ICUWB’s audience.
  • Best Paper and Student Paper Awards: We encourage authors’ participation. Instructions, prizes, and sponsors will be posted at the conference website.
  • Exhibits: An exhibition of research achievements and commercial products will be held concurrently.
