The 5th IEEE Conference on Standards for Communications & Networking
28-30 October 2019 // Granada, Spain
*CALL FOR PAPERS*
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we have great pleasure in
inviting you to submit your work to the 2019 IEEE Conference on
Standards for Communications & Networking (IEEE CSCN’19). The fifth
edition of this highly successful conference will be held in Granada,
Spain, the city of the world-famous Alhambra, one of the ten most
visited monuments around the world.
Standards play a key role in the success of the communications industry,
as enablers of global systems inter-operability and economies of scale.
The finalization of the 3GPP release 15 in June 2018 was a major
milestone. With the first 5G specifications now complete, the industry
has achieved critical progress on technology readiness, and operators
around the world are starting the commercial rollout. This represents
the culmination of years of concerted industry and academia efforts in
scoping out and designing the next generation of mobile systems. Past
editions of IEEE CSCN have played their own part in these efforts.
In 2019, IEEE CSCN will be divided into 4 tracks designed to cover the
diverse space of technologies – not limited to cellular systems–. New,
original and previously unpublished papers are invited that address the
emerging connectivity solutions and the standardization approaches and
strategies that these may take, as well as the relevant business models
Additionally, after the recent completion of 3GPP release 15, of special
interest are papers that assess the wireless landscape in light of the
recently completed release of NR standard. Not only the Non-Standalone
version, but also the Standalone version which delivers the potential
for 5G deployments independent of LTE.
We are pleased to invite you to submit an original an previously
unpublished paper on (but not limited to) the topics of the following
