First International Workshop on Low‐EMF radio‐link technologies and wireless networks management

In conjunction with the ISWCS 2014, the 11th International Symposium on Wireless Communication Systems, the LEXNET project is organising the first International workshop on Low‐EMF radio‐link technologies and wireless networks management.

The main focus of the existing EMF exposure evaluation framework is conformance testing using worst-case scenarios, in which wireless networks equipment and mobile terminals transmit at maximum power levels, and uplink (UL) and downlink (DL) are treated separately. The mounting worries about the exposure of end-users to EMF could change the users’ view of QoS, making EMF exposure an integral part of day-to-day network performance.
Hence, the Workshop is envisaged as an inter-disciplinary forum centred around the topic of low-EMF networking and its impact on future networks deployment. The Workshop is aimed at EMF exposure and Green Wireless experts, radio-link design and standardisation specialists, network designers, representatives of operators and manufacturers, as well as regulatory and standardisation bodies representatives (including 3GPP, CENELEC, IEEE). It is expected that representatives of funding bodies including the EC, as well as some of the existing research projects in the field of low-EMF technologies will find the Workshop useful.

Submissions are invited of regular papers presenting original research not previously published or currently under review by any other workshop, conference, or journal.

Extended submission deadline of the call for paper: May 9th, 2014

Date and venue: 26th to 29th August 2014 in Barcelona, Spain.
