ICC 2016 Information

At previous ICC and Globecom conferences, there were “selected areas in communications” tracks dedicated to molecular, biological, and multi-scale communication.

For ICC 2016 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, we are following a different model. We made arrangements so that you can submit papers on the subject of molecular, biological, and multi-scale communication directly to the Communications Theory (CT) symposium. The paper submission deadline is October 16, 2015.

As always, we encourage you to submit extended versions of your conference papers to the IEEE Transactions on Molecular, Biological, and Multi-Scale Communications.
