The 1st Workshop on LPWAN Systems and Applications

in Conjunction with IEEE ICPADS 2018

December 11-13, 2018, Sentosa, Singapore


Call for papers

The emerging low-power wide-area network (LPWAN) technologies will largely increase the degree of connectivity of Internet of Things (IoT) and enable the deep penetration of smart objects into the territories that challenged the existing short-range wireless technologies, such as urban areas with dense buildings, underground structures, uninstrumented rural and wild areas, etc. With the increasingly available LPWAN platforms (e.g., LoRaWAN and NBIoT) and the relevant development tools, research shall explore the challenges, issues, and opportunities in the improvement and deployment of LPWANs. LPWANSys aims to be the premier workshop for the research on LPWAN systems and applications. It invites researchers to submit and present their original studies in various aspects of LPWAN as well as stories and learned lessons in deploying real-world LPWAN systems and applications. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Narrowband channel profiling
  • Physical layer of LPWAN
  • Data link layer of LPWAN
  • Multi-gateway design
  • LPWAN performance profiling and analysis
  • LPWAN real-world applications
  • LPWAN deployment experiences
  • LPWAN with mobility
  • Security issues of LPWAN
  • Regulatory issues of LPWAN

Important Dates

  • Paper Submission Deadline: September 15, 2018
  • Paper Notification: September 26, 2018
  • Camera Ready: October 1, 2018

Submission Guideline

Each submission must not exceed 6 pages in the IEEE 8.5 “x11” two-column format with 10-point font, including tables, figures, and references. Submissions should be formatted using the template provided below and in PDF format. The review process is single-blind so the submissions should include author information.

All submissions will be reviewed by the Program Committee members. At least one author of the accepted paper should register the workshop and present the paper in the workshop in order for the accepted paper to be included into the IEEE digital library. All accepted papers will be included in IEEEXplore and indexed by EI.
