Salamanca (Spain) | September 12th to 15th, 2017
Smart Cities & Industries
IEEE International Conference on Ubiquitous Wireless Broadband

The 17th edition of the IEEE International Conference on Ubiquitous Wireless Broadband ICUWB’2017 (formerly known as International Conference on Ultra Wide-Band) will be held in Salamanca, Spain, from September 12th to 15th, 2017, under the theme Smart Cities & Industries. Mid-September is the perfect time to host an event in Salamanca (Spain), since local fair is taking place from the 7th to the 15th.

ICUWB, under its renewed format, provides a forum for the latest original research achievements and developments in ultra-high frequency wireless broadband technologies and their ubiquitous fields of application in microwave, millimeter wave, and even Terahertz, lightwave and optical wireless (OW) bands; without any restriction in scope to the standardized radio interface technologies commonly called today as UWB.

All accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE ICUWB 2017 Conference Proceedings and submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore®.
