Call for Papers
12th European Wireless Conference
Lucca (Tuscany), Italy
April 12-15, 2010
Submission deadline: Oct 30, 2009


The 12th European Wireless Conference will take place in the city of
Lucca, heart of Tuscany, Italy, from April 12 to April 15, 2010 and
will be hosted by the IMT Institute for Advanced Studies
(, a post-graduate school recently founded in Lucca,
which awards PhD degrees to a restricted group of outstanding students
from all over the world.

The 2010 edition of the conference will revolve around a main theme:
"Towards the Future Internet". One of the key objectives of research
in wireless communication, and notably the main one of 4th generation
cellular/mobile networks, is full integration of wireless segments
into the all-IP pervasive and ubiquitous network of the future,
regardless of the nature (wired or wireless) of the physical media.
In addition to technical sessions, tutorials and demonstation/poster
sessions will be hosted.

Papers bearing a PhD student as the first author will be considered
for the European Wireless Best Paper Awards. Papers qualifying for the
award shall be submitted to the Student Papers Co-Chairs.

A special PhD Defense Workshop will be organized, with the
participation of students who already have a dissertation proposal in
which they outline the key issues they wish to address, along with
applicable methodologies and strategies.


The first day of the conference will be devoted to half-day tutorials
(two in parallel in the morning plus two in the afternoon) featuring a
broad coverage of a specific research area. Tutorials attendance will
be included in the conference subscription fee.

If you wish to propose a tutorial for EW2010 then please submit your
proposal (abstract, motivation, speaker’s biographies) to the Tutorial
Co-Chairs by December 31, 2009.
