Technical Program

SPAWC 2009, the tenth IEEE International Workshop on Signal Processing Advances for Wireless Communications, is devoted to recent advances in signal processing for wireless and mobile communications.

This workshop brings together members of the signal processing, communications and information theory communities, working in universities, research centers and telecommunications companies. The meeting will feature keynote addresses by leading researchers, as well as invited and contributed papers. SPAWC 2009 will be held from June 21, 2009 to June 24, 2009 in Perugia, Italy.
