It is our pleasure to welcome to all of you to the 22nd IEEE International Workshop on Signal Processing Advances in Wireless Communications (SPAWC). SPAWC, the flagship workshop of the Signal Processing for Wireless Communications and Networking Technical Committee (SPCOM‐TC) of the IEEE Signal Processing Society, aims to bring together researchers in signal processing, wireless communications, information theory, and optimization from both academia and industry.
SPAWC 2021 will be a fully-virtual conference.
On Sept. 8, 1902, Guglielmo Marconi was looking at the Tuscan coast from the cruiser “Carlo Alberto” . While passing in front of Leghorn, Marconi expressed his intention to build a powerful intercontinental station. The selected site was Coltano, a rural area between Lucca and Leghorn. The Coltano station was inaugurated by Marconi himself in 1911 with transmissions to Clifden (Ireland) and Glace Bay (Canada). SPAWC 2021 will be a great opportunity to learn more about this once worldwide renowned, but now completely forgotten, radio station.
Sadly, we have to inform you that SPAWC 2021 will be a fully virtual event, due to many circumstances.
The COVID-19 cases in Europe and Italy are increasing. In addition, the Green Pass’s rules for travelling and for participating at physical events are currently very uncertain. All this has clearly affected the number of colleagues who registered for the physical event.
We are very sorry for any trouble this may cause but, please, understand that this was a very painful decision.
Of course, we will revert the physical author registrations into virtual author registrations and we will refund the difference of the registration fee.
We remain at your disposal for any information needed.
