About European Wireless 2005

Wireless communications is today one of the most dynamic sectors of our global economy. The introduction of third generation mobile communications is no longer imminent but incident in Europe, and throughout the world. At the same time, research for wireless communication systems beyond the third generation is in full swing.

The European Wireless 2005 Conference focuses on technologies, protocols, services and applications that will enable a full seamless and nomadic user access to new classes of multimedia services with a user-centric focus. Service provision will occur at the home, at the workplace, at leisure and during travel. The vision is to integrate the wireless local area and next generation cellular networks and develop the next generation of future wireless communication. Such networks will enable the provision of ubiquitous wireless services, which will become more and more innovative as they are driven by the consumer demands of the user and as a result of competition between the service providers. This is the main theme chosen for the European Wireless 2005 Conference, which will be held in Nicosia, Cyprus, on April 10-13, 2005. The focus of the conference will be the technical challenges which need to be met in order to make the vision of the ubiquitous provision of innovative wireless services a reality.

Conference History

The European Wireless (EW) has happened so far alternating with the European Personal and Mobile radio Conference (EPMCC).

Earlier events of the EW have been:

  1. Oct. 1998, Amsterdam, Netherlands, together with European Microwave Conference
  2. Oct. 1999, Munich, Germany, together with European Microwave Conference
  3. Sept. 2000, Dresden, Germany
  4. Feb. 2002, Florence, Italy, http://www.ing.unipi.it/ew2002/
  5. Mar. 2004, Barcelona, Spain, http://research.ac.upc.es/EW2004/


Earlier events of the EPMCC have been:

  1. Nov. 1995, Bologna, Italy
  2. Sept. 1997, Bonn, Germany, http://www.comnets.rwth-aachen.de/EPMCC97/
  3.  Mar. 1999, Paris, France
  4. Feb. 2001, Vienna, Austria, http://www.tuwien.ac.at/forschung/news/a-001211_epmcc.htm
  5. Apr. 2003, Glasgow, Scotland


In 2004 the TPCs of both conferences decided to join both conferences and continue under the unique name of European Wireless. The 11th event of this combined conference series is happening in 2005 at Cyprus.
