1st International Workshop on Wireless Communication Technologies for
Combating Pandemic (WCTCP'2020)

in conjunction with the IEEE International Conference on E-health
Networking, Application & Services (IEEE Healthcom 2020), December 12-15

==========Scope of the workshop:==========

In the recent time, Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) has been declared a
global pandemic impacting nearly 213 countries/territories and the number

In this context, various wireless communication and positioning
technologies are making a significant impact on critical roles of many
services such as healthcare automation, E-education, E-Commerce, Industry,
supply chain automation, etc. The objective of this workshop is to bring
together researchers and practitioners to discuss how wireless
communication technologies can combat COVID-19 or other pandemic through
facilitating various services as mentioned.

Paper Submission:

Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers using EDAS via the
following link:

A full paper should not have more than six (6) IEEE style pages including
results, figures and references. Max. 2 extra pages are allowed with extra

procedure (with at least 3 independent anonymous reviews).

All of the accepted papers will be published on IEEE Xplore.

During the initial paper submission process via EDAS, it is the authors'
responsibility to ensure that the author list and the paper title of the
submitted PDF file is an exact match to the author list and paper title on
the EDAS registration page. In particular, the EDAS registration page must
include all co-authors, not just the submitting author.

Failure to comply with this rule might result in your paper being withdrawn
