The 21st IEEE International Workshop on Computer Aided Modelling and Design of Communication Links and Networks (CAMAD 2016)

23-25 October 2016
Ryerson University, Toronto, ON, Canada

Call for Papers

IEEE CAMAD 2016 chairs and special session organizers invite submissions to Special Sessions. Paper submission deadline for all special sessions is 1 July 2016. Please see below detailed information about special sessions:
1 – Wireless Technologies for Smart Cities [Download CFP]
2 – Evolving Technologies for Smart Cities [Download CFP] – Li- Fi (Light –Fidelity)! Can it be the Enabling Technology for Internet of Things? [Download CFP] – 5Gwireless: Innovative Architectures, Wireless Technologies and Tools for High Capacity and Sustainable 5G Ultra-Dense Cellular Networks [Download CFP] – Systems integration in Software Defined Networking [Download CFP] International Workshop on Computer-Aided Modeling Analysis and Design of Communication Links and Networks (CAMAD), provides a forum for discussion of recent developments on analytical and simulation tools and techniques for the performance evaluation of communications systems. It was launched in 1986, being held every 2 years until 2006, often in cooperation with flagship IEEE Communication Society conferences (Int. Conference on Communications – ICC, Global Telecommunication Conference – GLOBECOM). Since 2007, the workshop has been held once every year motivated by the ever increasing interest in this hot research and development field, and since 2009 CAMAD is an attractive IEEE Communications Society portfolio event.IEEE CAMAD 2016 will be held as a stand-alone event on 23-25 October 2016, at Ryerson University in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. IEEE CAMAD will focus on Communications for Smart Cities this year. IEEE CAMAD will be hosting several special sessions, and will bring together scientists, engineers, manufacturers and service providers to exchange and share their experiences and new ideas focusing on research and innovation results under wireless communications in smart cities. In addition to contributed papers, the conference will also include keynote speeches, panel and demo sessions. IEEE CAMAD is soliciting papers describing original work, unpublished and not currently submitted for publication elsewhere, on topics including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Autonomic Communication Systems and Self-Organized Networks

Submission Guidelines

Prospective authors are invited to submit high-quality original technical papers reporting original research of theoretical or applied nature for presentation at the conference and publication in the CAMAD 2016 Proceedings and IEEE Xplore. All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed. The manuscripts must be prepared in English with a maximum paper length of six (6) printed pages (following the standard IEEE 2-column format) without incurring additional page charges (maximum 1 additional page with over length page charge of USD100 for each page if accepted). Please note that for every accepted contribution, at least one person must register for the conference and present. Accepted papers not presented in the conference will be excluded from the proceedings.

All papers for CAMAD 2016 should be submitted via EDAS using
