6th - 7th July 2015
Bradford, United Kingdom
Proposals for half or full day workshops are invited for consideration for the 7th International Conference on Wireless and Satellite Systems (WiSATS) 2015. The purpose of these workshops is to provide a platform for presenting original and fundamental advances in the field of Wireless and Satellite Systems. Workshops should be focused on an active and current research topic and be aligned with the technical scope of the conference. Workshops are a great opportunity for community building and provide a forum for attendees with common interests. They also offer a good opportunity for young researchers to present their work and to obtain feedback from an interested community. For more information about the conference, see: http://www.psats.eu/2015.
Proposals should be prepared as a single document of no more than 3 pages in 12pt font. One page must be a draft call for papers. Proposals should include: workshop title; summary of the workshop topic and scope; rationale and objectives for the workshop; organisers details and biographies; planned length of the workshop; estimate of expected attendance; plans for publicising the workshop; details and statistics of any previously organised workshops; draft call for papers.
