International Workshop on Recent Advances in Wireless and Microwave Technology (IWAMT)

International Workshop on Recent Advances in Wireless and Microwave Technology (IWAMT)
Kochi, Kerala, India
August 9-11, 2012

Users want seamlessly connected advanced services delivered on-demand wherever they may be, on any platform, over any available network. But as the user experience becomes richer, the underlying technologies become more complex. Affordability and portability are the two principal requirements - and features - of wireless communications. Further, the rapid development of mobile broadband services has brought explosive growth of bandwidth requirements. This has accelerated the pace of adoption of theoretical/analytical results into industrial standards and practices. This workshop attempts to overview some of the recent developments, challenges and future direction in the field of wireless and microwave technology.

The International Workshop on Recent Advances in Wireless and Microwave Technology (IWAMT) will be held as a part of International Conference on Advances in Computing and Communications (ACC) which is being held at RSET, Cochin this year from 9th August to 11th August 2012.
The workshop intends to bring together students, researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry. It will include peer reviewed programs of oral/poster presentation sessions and invited talks by leading academicians/researchers/resource persons from industry.
