The 2015 IEEE International Symposium on Power Line Communications and its Applications (ISPLC) is organized by the IEEE Technical Committee on Power Line Communications ( http://committees.comsoc.org/plc). The conference will be held March 29 to April 1, 2015, in downtown Austin in the Blanton Museum of Art Complex of The University of Texas at Austin campus. Downtown Austin has a dynamic live music scene, hike & bike trails along the river, museums, and The University of Texas at Austin campus.
ISPLC 2015 will focus on key aspects of communications theory, algorithms, standards, measurements, and implementations pertaining to communications via power lines. Acceptance of submissions will be based on quality, relevance and originality. Accepted papers will be published in the ISPLC 2015 proceedings and IEEE Xplore. Proposals for special sessions are invited. The conference will also include keynote and plenary talks as well as an industry forum and exhibition.
Submissions are invited in, but not limited to, the following areas:
• Modulation, coding and signal processing for PLC
• Electromagnetic compatibility, interference and coupling issues
• Multiple access techniques and protocols for PLC networks
• Cross-layer optimization and service integration
• System architectures and security issues
• PLC standardization
• Channel characterization, modeling, experimental systems, field trials
• Emerging PLC-related technologies
Proposals for special sessions October 27, 2014
Submission of full papers November 10, 2014
Notification of acceptance January 5, 2015
Camera-ready papers due February 2, 2015
To be published in the IEEE ISPLC 2015 Conference Proceedings and to be eligible for publication in IEEE Xplore, at least one of the authors of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference at the full (member or non-member) rate and the paper must be presented by an author of that paper at the conference unless a TPC Co-Chair grants permission for a substitute presenter arranged in advance of the event and who is qualified both to present and answer questions. Non-refundable registration fees must be paid prior to uploading the final IEEE formatted, publication-ready version of the paper. For authors with multiple accepted papers, one full registration is valid for up to 3 papers. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE ISPLC 2015 Conference Proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore. Please see http://www.ieee-isplc.org.
