Joint NEWCOM/COST Workshop on Wireless Communications

Newcom# Workshop, Barcelona, Spain, Oct. 14 – 15, 2015



The JNCW 2015 is jointly organized by the FP7 European Network of Excellence in Wireless Communications NEWCOM# and the former ICT COST Action 1004 Cooperative Radio Communications for Green Smart Environments. This workshop will give NEWCOM# and COST IC1004 communities the opportunity to disseminate their research results, after 3-4 years of activity within the framework of the European FP7 research program. Participation and paper submission is open to anyone, member or not of these Actions.

The workshop program will be composed of invited talks, technical presentations, posters and demonstrations. The accepted contributions from the NEWCOM# and IC1004 “workshop” papers call will be published in the conference CD-ROM. To a limited number of papers, selected on the basis of their high quality, a full submission in the peer-reviewed journal "Advances in Electronics and Telecommunications" will be offered.
