Final Manuscript Instructions

Welcome to the IEEE 2018 Radio and Wireless Week (RWW2018) and thank you for choosing this venue to publish your work.

Each paper in the Proceedings of RWW2018 will be published from a file uploaded by the author using the link to the RWW2018 submission site. All Final Manuscripts can be received, electronically and in .pdf format only, and must be compatible with IEEE Xplore, as certified by IEEE PDFeXpress (for detailed instructions see: PDF Instruction).

The hard deadline for Final Manuscript submission is:

30 October 2017, 5PM Mountain Time (2300 UTC)

The total length of your final manuscript must not exceed four pages; longer papers will be truncated or excluded from the Proceedings. The maximum final .pdf file size is 4.0 Mb; larger files will be arbitrarily reduced.
