Call for Papers

The 2004 International Zurich Seminar on Communications (IZS) will be held at ETH Zurich, Switzerland, from Wednesday, Feb. 18, through Friday, Feb. 20, 2004.

Original technical contributions are solicited on topics including:


Wide area mobile radio
Wireless local area networks
Wireless local loops
xDSL and cable modem technologies


Channel modeling
Applied information theory
Coding and modulation
Joint detection, decoding, and ... (you name it)
MIMO wireless and space-time coding
Ultra wide band
Antenna design
Fundamental hardware issues


Algorithms, protocols, and systems for routing and switching
Ad-hoc and peer-to-peer networking of all scales
High-mobility architectures and protocols
Next-generation internet
Optical networks
Quality of service
Fault-tolerance and reliability

As a novelty in 2004, roughly half the contributions will be invited.

Due to its traditional format with at most two parallel sessions, the IZS is an opportunity to learn from, and to communicate to, leading experts in areas beyond one's own speciality. All papers should therefore be presented with this wide audience in mind.

Papers will be reviewed on the basis of a manuscript (not exceeding 6 pages) of sufficient detail to permit reasonable evaluation. Authors of accepted papers will be asked to produce a manuscript not exceeding 4 pages that will be published in the Proceedings. All accepted papers will be allowed twenty minutes for presentation.

The deadline for submissions is

September 15, 2003.

Detailed instructions for the submission of papers, as well as information on the technical program, special events, accomodation, etc., will be posted on the IZS 2004 web site:


We look forward to seeing you at IZS!
