Workshop March 14-16, 2018


The 22nd International ITG Workshop on Smart Antennas (WSA 2018) provides a prestigious international forum for researchers and practitioners from around the world to present and discuss the latest research on wireless/multiuser communications and related signal processing algorithms and information theoretic analysis, seen through the peculiar prism of smart multi-antennas (MIMO) systems and their role in present and future wireless system technology.

More specifically, a non-exclusive list of topics of interest includes:

  • Beam-forming and Multi-Antenna Techniques
  • Massive MIMO Systems
  • Network MIMO
  • MIMO with interference
  • Multi-Carrier and Multi-User Transmission
  • Millimeter Wave Communications
  • Waveform design
  • Energy Efficiency of Multi-Antenna Systems
  • Precoding and Limited Feedback
  • Communication with Low Feedback
  • Ultra-Low Delay Communication
  • Multi-Antenna Channel Measurements
  • Channel Modeling and Estimation
  • Compressive Sensing and Sparse Processing
  • Machine Learning for PHY/MAC Design
  • Multi-Antenna Techniques for Enhanced Security
  • Field Trials and Demonstrators
  • Antenna Array Design
  • Satellite Communications and Navigation
  • MIMO Radar and Multi-Sensor Processing
  • Cooperative and Sensor Networks
  • Device-to-Device Communications
  • Uncoordinated and massive access
  • Relaying and Multi-Hop
  • Cross-layer Optimization

The workshop comprises both oral and poster presentations. All papers are peer-reviewed and the proceedings will be included in the IEEE Xplore database.
