Call for Papers

The International Workshop on Computer-Aided Modeling Analysis and Design of Communication Links and Networks (CAMAD), provides a forum for discussion of recent developments on analytical and simulation tools and techniques for the performance evaluation of communications systems. It was launched in 1986, being held every 2 years until 2006, often in cooperation with flagship IEEE Communication Society conferences (Int. Conference on Communications - ICC, Global Telecommunication Conference - GLOBECOM). Since 2006, the workshop has been held once every year motivated by the ever increasing interest in this hot research and development field. From 2009, CAMAD is an IEEE Communications Society portfolio event. IEEE CAMAD 2012 will be held as a stand-alone event on June 19-21, 2012, in Lund.
This year IEEE CAMAD will focus on communication aspects of 5G Networking and beyond. IEEE CAMAD will be hosting several Workshops and Special Sessions, bringing together a diverse group of scientists, engineers, manufacturers and providers to exchange and share their experiences and new ideas focusing on research and innovation results under wireless communications in the 5G domain. In addition to contributed papers, the conference will also include keynote speeches, panel and demo sessions.
CAMAD will comprise aside from submitted peer-reviewed papers, several special sessions, panels, demonstration sessions and tutorials, and will bring together scientists, engineers, manufacturers and service providers to exchange and share their experiences, new ideas, and research results surrounding all aspects on energy saving and the solutions adopted to envisage an environmentally friendly internet of the future.
CAMAD is soliciting papers describing original work, unpublished and not currently submitted for publication elsewhere, on topics, including but not limited to, the following:

  • Wireless PHY layers for 5G: design, analysis, and optimization
