The ongoing goal of providing enhanced information services seamlessly and ubiquitously continues to drive wireless communications from both government and commercial perspectives.  This makes wireless communications not only a very vibrant area of research but also one of significant societal impact. Thus, both theoretical studies and practical techniques that promise to improve the performance of wireless networks are of extreme interest. The symposium will focus on such studies and techniques that reside at the physical layer (PHY) and combinations of the PHY with higher layers (i.e. cross-layer design).
