9th EAI International Conference on Wireless and Satellite Systems (formerly PSATS)

September 14–15, 2017 | Oxford, Great Britain

Call for Papers - Wisats 2017


The conference’s central theme is the means of using the wireless and satellite services directly to the user for personal communications, multimedia and location identification. The services enabled by WiSATS not only cover the requirements of an ordinary citizen but also provide defense personal services such as tracking, visualization and virtualization in a highly secure communication environment.
