There are four specific aspects that the Summit will consider:

  • State of the art mmWave technologies, phenomenology, and performance characteristics important for mmWave solutions.
  • Exploratory use cases and differentiated IoT solutions and applications that rely on mmWave technologies.
  • Lessons learned from deployments, demonstrations, and experiments exploiting mmWave technologies.
  • The choices of policy, regulatory regimes, and legal aspects of operating in the mmWave and adjacent bands.

The majority of the presentations for the Summit are chosen by invitation and address current issues important to IoT and the theme of the Summit. In this call for submissions, we are seeking the following items:

  • Suggestions for speakers to present on the subjects identified above.
  • Suggestions for assisting in organizing panels or round-tables on specific subtopics and in identifying panel participants.
  • Suggestions for other formats that will help the Summit be more interactive and meaningful to the audience.
  • Submission of papers to accompany presentations at the Summit. These will be fully peer reviewed as indicated in the instructions below. The choice of presenters will be made by the Summit Chairs, based on relevance to the Summit. Selection of a presenter does not guarantee the acceptance of papers for publication.

The majority of the presentations are by invitation. However, we will also accommodate a limited number of original and novel submitted papers. These will be fully peer reviewed, and the accepted papers will be published in IEEE Xplore. If you wish to submit a paper, please follow the instructions below. The deadline for submission is September 22, 2019.  Please note that we may ask you to participate as a presenter if we conclude that the material is highly relevant to the summit, but your paper was not accepted for publication. We expect that all the presentations will be posted on the Summit Website after the event.
