Call For Papers


3rd International ICST Conference on Mobile Lightweight Wireless Systems
Bilbao, Spain, 9-11 May 2011


The worldwide scientific community is witnessing an upsurge of new path-breaking communication-based technologies that have unchained a flurry of research, focusing not only on the fundamental principles of such discoveries themselves, but also on accelerating their transition to a fully-functional and efficient practical implementation. In turn, recent theoretic advances such as cognitive radio processing, compressive sampling, multiterminal MIMO networks, or distributed and cooperative algorithms are currently undergoing intense research effort towards their practical implementation, as evidenced from a plethora of exciting European and national funded projects and consortiums (e.g. NEWCOM++, MIMAX, COGNAC, COMONSENS, REWIND, ARTIST4G, QOSMOS, SACRA, OneFIT, SAPHYRE, ACROPOLIS, EUWB, QASAR). In light of this vibrant activity, the third edition of the International ICST Conference on Mobile Lightweight Wireless Systems (MOBILIGHT 2011) will feature first-rate theoretical and practical research around the latest advances on information, data and signal processing for wireless communications.

MOBILIGHT 2011 will be held in Bilbao (Bizkaia, Basque Country, Spain), a beautiful venue internationally recognized for business, trading and its devotion to first-level R&D, as buttressed by more than two hundred technology-based companies and R&D centers established in the region. MOBILIGHT 2011 targets information exchange and cross-fertilization among academia, research centers and industry through the organization of four complementary tracks, which will compile significant advances on the design of wireless and mobile communications systems. Fundamental research on PHY and network layers will be complemented with a 3rd track covering experimental results and performance evaluation of in-lab testbeds. Besides, contributions on novel mobile services and applications under the "always-on" operational principle will also be considered in a 4th track. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

TRACK 1: Information, Data and Signal Processing for Wireless Communications

- Information-theoretic limits of multiterminal communication scenarios
