Call for Papers

European Wireless (EW) is a key venue for European and worldwide researchers to be acquainted with the latest trends in wireless communications and networking. The main theme of EW 2023 is “6G driving a sustainable growth”. This 28th edition of EW (EW 2023) will be held in Rome, Italy, on Oct 2-4, 2023. Currently, the conference is planned to be in presence, hosting authors’ presentations, and allowing for interactions and networking among the participants. Nevertheless, if health and travelling rules and restrictions arise, the hybrid mode will also be considered and set up.

The conference will consist of one main track and four special sessions, as follows (click to collapse items):
