Journal description

The IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications is a major archival journal which will be committed to the timely publication of very high-quality, peer-reviewed, original papers that advance the state-of-the art and applications of wireless communications. Topics of interest include the following: Broadband wireless communications, Network architectures and protocols, Adaptive antennas for wireless systems, Multiple access techniques, Modulation and coding, Multirate and multicarrier communications, Detection and estimation, Space-time processing, Diversity techniques and equalization, Synchronization techniques, Propagation and channel characterization, Software radio, Fading countermeasures, Resource allocation and interference management, Multiuser detection, Security, privacy, and authentication, Signal separation and interference rejection, Experimental and prototype results, DSP applications to wireless systems, Wireless multimedia communications. Systems and services including mobile satellites, wireless local loops, wireless LANs, and PCS/cellular. In addition, papers on specific topics or on more non-traditional topics related to specific application areas, are encouraged. Examples include Simulation tools and methodologies for design, analysis, rapid prototyping, performance prediction, and cellular system engineering; Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing; MIMO systems, and Wireless over optical.
