The scope of this conference will target one of the key drivers for 5G, the IoE world that includes technology advances in cyber physical systems and security. The conference is also interested in novel works applying 5G concepts to space and underwater communications. The conference aims to provide a platform where to disseminate and discuss key innovations and technology trends on this fast evolving arena.
All accepted papers will be published in Springer´s LNICST series and will appear in SpringerLink Digital Library, one of the world´s largest scientific libraries.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following: *5G technologies, applications and services for IoE - Device-to-device and machine-to-machine communications; Pervasive Services; Channel modeling and propagation; Network Coding in 5G networks; Millimeter wave communications; Energy harvesting for wireless communications; Antennas and smart antennas; Mobile Clouds; Security and Privacy; Physical-Layer Security*
