We have received a lot of requests for extension especially from Japan. Our hearts and feelings are with those suffering from the earthquake and tsunami. We have agreed to give another chance to authors, and have extended the deadline to April 30, which is going to be a firm deadline.  

IEEE PIMRC'11 Call for Papers

The 22nd IEEE Symposium on Personal, Indoor, Mobile and Radio Communications (PIMRC 2011) will be held in The Westin Harbour Castle in Toronto, Canada. Toronto is about an hour and half away from Niagara Falls, and Niagara‐on‐the‐lake, a renowned wine country, and about two hours away from Thousand Islands. Toronto is an intimate metropolis featuring the best the world has to offer in dining, shopping, creativity, architecture, entertainment and sports. Toronto has over 7,000 restaurants, is the world’s third largest center for live theatre, and is one of the world’s great shopping destinations. PIMRC 2011 will overlap with the Toronto International Film Festival, which will give an opportunity to the attendees to also enjoy this major event.

The symposium program will include a broad range of topics from physical layer to emerging application technologies. The following is a preliminary list of the conference tracks:

Tracks:
Wide Area Cellular Communications (WACC)
Autonomous Infrastructure Deployment (AIC)
Local and Personal Area Networks (LPAN)
Security and Localization (SL)
Intelligent Transportation Networks (ITN)
Wireless Networks and Health Care (WNHC)
Cognitive Radio and Spectrum Management (CRSM)

Important dates:

Paper submission:
Acceptance of notification:
Final manuscript due:

April 30, 2011 (Firm Deadline)
To start June 17th, 2011
July 15th, 2011

All submissions should be written in English with a maximum paper length of five (5) printed pages (10‐point font) including figures.

PDF version of the call is available here.

 
Submission to Tracks

 

IEEE PIMRC 2011 has moved away from the traditional horizontal track organization into a vertical track definition to emphasize the fact that segregated layering concept does not completely apply in practice. Today we witness a tighter interaction between different layers to provide service to applications. The conventional layering breakdown is however present in the tracks as per the following table.

The following tables give a detailed description of each layer for the tracks. We acknowledge that the list is not comprehensive and may not be completely thorough since it is very difficult, if not impossible, to assign topics to layers. Authors should use their own judgment in choosing tracks for their paper.
