The 23rd IEEE International Workshop on Computer-Aided Modeling Analysis and Design of Communication Links and Networks (CAMAD 2018)

17-19 September 2018

Barcelona, Spain


IEEE CAMAD 2018 will be held as a stand-alone event on 17-19 September 2018 in Barcelona, Spain. This year IEEE CAMAD will focus on Communication and Experimentation aspects of 5G Networking and beyond. IEEE CAMAD will be hosting 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 in the 5G domain. In addition to contributed papers, the conference will also include keynote speeches, panel and demo sessions.

We look forward to welcoming you all at the IEEE CAMAD 2018 in Barcelona.
