Call for papers

The need for new wireless communication systems to cope with the demand of new services demanding higher performance, larger throughput, wider bandwidth, and lower bit-error-rates, requires to focus the development of new communication techniques in the microwave and mm-wave bands. Scientific conference MTTW'20 is focused on the new theories and techniques extending limits of currently used wireless communication systems and microwave technologies. The conference seeks submissions from academia, industry, and government institutions presenting novel research on wireless communication systems and microwave technologies. Conference calls for papers describing practical implementation activities, results, and issues. Papers describing novel paradigms, original directions, or non-traditional perspectives are also encouraged. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following topics:

International workshop is an essential part of IEEE Latvia section activities devoted to the annual celebration of IEEE day at the beginning of October.

Due to precautionary measures to limit the spread of COVID19 disease, the means for remote participation in the conference will be provided along with usual in situ conference sessions. However, each case of the remote presentation will be evaluated individually. During the registration in EDAS, the authors are asked to confirm that they plan to attend the conference. Papers with the in-person presentation will be accepted with higher priority rather than ones presented remotely. Remote presentation of the papers which were marked in-person will not be allowed and those papers will not be published.

Registration fee

Participation in the workshop is free of charge.
