Call for Student Posters/Demo Submissions

Call for Demos and Student Posters

IEEE WCNC is the premier event for wireless communications researchers, industry professionals, and academics interested in the latest development and design of wireless systems and networks. Sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society, IEEE WCNC has a long history of bringing together industry, academia, and regulatory bodies. In 2017, the city of San Francisco and the Silicon Valley will become the center of the wireless world by hosting IEEE WCNC ‘17.
WCNC ‘17 solicits submissions for technical demonstrations and student posters showing innovative research and prototypes. Submissions are invited in all topics covered by the main conference in addition to all the workshops held in conjunction with WCNC ‘17.
Submitted abstracts will be reviewed on the basis of scientific merit, novelty and practical applications. Selected abstracts will be distributed with the  conference proceedings and available on the conference website. Authors must be present during the Demo and Poster session. Awards will be given to the best demo and poster.
