Call for Papers

For the first time the Workshop on Smart Antennas (WSA) and the Conference on Systems, Communications, and Coding (SCC) will take place together. The TU Braunschweig in the science region of Wolfsburg, Hannover, and Brunswick will host the joint event from 27. February to 3. March 2023. The conference is technically co-sponsored by the VDE ITG, EURASIP, and IEEE Communications Society (pending).

The workshop both compromises oral and poster presentations. All papers are peer-reviewed and the proceedings will be submitted to IEEE Xplore. Camera-ready versions of full-length papers will be up to 6 pages long.

You are cordially invited to submit full-length papers or 2-page extended abstracts (for prototype/measurement papers only) via EDAS. Please read the submission guidelines below before submitting your paper.

Submission Guidelines

This conference aims to provide a forum for researchers and technologists to present new ideas and contributions in the form of technical papers, demos, and real-world evaluations in the field of wireless communications, networking, and signal processing.

Prospective authors are invited to submit high-quality original technical papers (max 6 pages, 10-point font size) for presentation at the conference and publication. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the WSA&SCC 2023 Proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore.

We reserve the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (including its removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference.

Papers are reviewed on the basis that they do not contain plagiarized material and have not been submitted to any other conference at the same time (double submission). These matters are taken very seriously and we will take action against any author who engages in either practice. Follow these links to learn more:

IEEE Policy on Plagiarism

IEEE Policy on Double Submission

To be published in the WSA&SCC 2023 proceedings and to be eligible for publication in IEEE Xplore, an author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference at the full rate and the paper must be presented by an author of that paper at the conference. Exceptions may be granted by the General Chair prior to the event.

All papers should be submitted via EDAS, using standard IEEE conference templates. The page length for regular paper submissions is six (6) printed pages in 10 point font and must be written in English. It is the authors’ responsibility to ensure that the author list, the paper title, and the abstract of the submitted pdf file matches the information entered on the EDAS registration page exactly. Please be aware that the author list cannot be changed in the final manuscript.

In addition to regular full papers, we accept extended abstracts for papers based on field measurements, field trials, or prototyping activities. This includes comprehensive lab work, hardware set-ups, and/or measurement data post-processing. The page length for extended abstracts is two (2) pages. Otherwise, the same submission guidelines as for regular papers apply. The extended abstract should provide sufficient details on the hardware set-up (preferably a block diagram), the measurement data, and what insights you intend to obtain from the prototype/measurements, plus some first results. Submissions to the extended abstracts track not falling in the previously mentioned categories will be rejected without review. Please contact the TPC Chair if you have any questions. A full length paper is required by the regular final paper submission deadline.

Call for Demo Proposals

The Workshop on Smart Antennas (WSA) and the Conference on Systems, Communications, and Coding (SCC) 2023 will feature an interactive demo session, where wireless simulation tools, testbeds and prototypes can be presented. A corresponding paper submission is optional. If you want to contribute to the demo session, please send your proposal at
