National wireless research collaboration symposium to be held in Idaho Falls May 15-16

Posted April 17, 2014

The Idaho State University Electrical Engineering and College of Science and Engineering are organizing a research symposium focusing on wireless communications to be held May 15-16 at the Center for Higher Education in Idaho Falls.

The symposium will include six single-track research sessions, technical panels that reflect state-of-the-art research, key solutions needed for advancement of spectrum-using technologies and an optional visit to the 890-square mile Idaho National Laboratory outdoor Wireless National User Facility. Advance registration is required to participate in the optional tour.

Papers and panel proposals are being accepted for the symposium. The papers should be written in standard IEEE format, contain descriptions of work that is new, significant and relevant to the purpose of the symposium, be written in English and be a maximum of 10 pages.

Papers will be reviewed and selected based on originality, relevance, clarity, validity of method and adherence to the submission guidelines. Papers that are selected will be presented during one of the six NWRCS 2014 sessions. At least one author of each paper is expected to register and attend the symposium.

Papers will be accepted until mid-April. Panel proposals will be presented at one of the six sessions either orally or in a poster. Panel proposers may also submit an up to two-page abstract for the panels.

The symposium is sponsored by the National Science Foundation, Idaho National Laboratory, Idaho State University, The Eastern Idaho Engineering Council, Idaho Academy of Science and potentially other professional and technical societies including IEEE, industry, academia and federal agencies. Industry participants are invited to sponsor the symposium. Sponsorship details can be found in the symposium website.

The general chairs for this event are Daniel Devasirvatham, INL, and Hossein Mousavinezhad, Idaho State University. The organizing committee consists of Jodi Grgich, Logistics Coordinator, Jodi.Grgich@inl.gov, Becky Wray, ISU-Idaho Falls Academic Programs, wrayrebe@isu.edu, and Shaleena Jaison, paper and panel coordinator, jaisshal@isu.edu.
