In spite of all the advantages of UWB, there are many fundamental and practical issues that need to be studied carefully to ensure the success of the technology in the wireless communication market. Multi-access code design, multiple access interference (MAI) cancellation, narrowband interference (NBI) detection and cancellation, synchronization of the receiver to extremely narrow pulses, accurate modeling of UWB channels, estimation of multipath channel delays and coefficients, adaptive transceiver design are some of the issues that still require a lot of research. In addition to these physical layer issues, the fundamental role of UWB technology in wireless networks is still open and a wide range of research questions continue to present challenges. Especially, the role of the UWB in wireless ad-hoc and sensors networks requires significant amount of research. The symposium is aimed to assemble original research papers that address these questions, and enhance the state-of-the-art UWB systems. Papers on practical as well as on theoretical topics and problems are invited. Suggested topics include (but are not limited to):

  • UWB modulation/coding
  • UWB pulse generation and antenna issues
  • Propagation characteristics of UWB channels
  • UWB receiver designs and signal processing
  • UWB circuits and systems
  • Synchronization and channel estimation
  • Interference issues including narrowband interference, multi-access interference, inter-pulse, and inter-symbol interference
  • UWB wireless networks and related issues
  • Multi-access code design and multi-user interference cancellation
  • Spectral management
  • Cross-layer adaptation for UWB
  • Power management issues in UWB
  • Range estimation and location management using UWB
  • Multicarrier techniques in UWB system design and implementation


All papers are limited to 6 pages and must be in standard IEEE double-column format. All submissions will be handled electronically: click here for paper submission
