Call for Papers

European Wireless (EW) is a key venue for European and worldwide researchers to be acquainted with the latest trends in wireless communications and networking. The main theme of EW 2022 is 6G and 5G beyond communications. This 27th edition of EW (EW 2022) will be held in Dresden, Germany, in September 19-21, 2022. Currently, the conference is planned to be in presence, hosting authors’ presentations, and allowing for interactions and networking among the participants. Nevertheless, if health and traveling rules and restrictions arise, the hybrid mode will also be considered and set up.

The conference will consist of one main track and five special sessions, as follows (click to collapse items):
