European workshop on testbed based wireless research,
Stockholm, November 19th, 2014

Following up on the succesful "scandinavian workshop on testbed based wireless research" of last year we are happy to announce the more ambitious first "European workshop on testbed based wireless research" which will also be held at the Royal Institute of Technology, KTH. The workshop invites leading wireless experimentalists to do live demonstrations, oral presentations and present posters at the workshop. The workshop provides means for presentation of novel research results at an early stage without formal paper submission, reviewing and a subsequent workshop proceeding. In addition there will also be a community meetings for National Instruments (for USRP users) and Mango Communications (for WARP users). These community meetings will enable researchers to get the latest news on their respective platforms and interact with experts on the two respective platforms. We would like to see your presentation and demo at the workshop! Areas of interest for the conference are (but not limited to) the following:

  • Physical layer design
  • Protocol design, not only limited to the medium access control layer Network optimization and management
  • Validation results, i.e. performance comparisons between theoretical and experimental work
  • Tools for experimental platforms (i.e. new libraries, novel hardware/software designs etc.)


    The workshop is held withing the framework of the Access Linnaeus Centre , and the SSF sponsored RAMCOORAN project.
    We acknowledge the support of Mango Communications and National Instruments .

    Registration and Entrance Fee

    The workshop is free of charge, i.e. we do not request a registration fee. However, participants need to register and we have only a limited number of seats.

  • Talks need to be registered with a title and an abstract by October 15th. We will collect them and decide on the slot assignments based on relevance to the workshop and novelty. Talks, which can not be integrated into the main program will be offered to contribute to the poster session instead. Abstracts for talks and demos should be limited to two pages in IEEE conference style format.
  • Pure participation requires a registration by November 1st. We ask for an indication which community meeting participants want to join.
  • Demos and poster contributions are accepted as they are proposed. Here, we request a registration also by November 1st with abstract.

    Abstracts for talks and demos should be limited to two pages in IEEE conference style format. Register by emailing: with subject "[EWT]" and wait for confirmation.
