Call for Papers

First EAI International Conference on Systems and Technology for Energy Management in Communication Networks


March 21–24, 2016

Guildford, Great Britain



The debut edition of International Conference on Systems and Technology for Energy Management in Communication Networks is an international forum on theory, design, analysis, implementation/practices related to energy efficiency and energy management in 5G communication systems. Stemcom 2016 will be held in University of Surrey - home of the 5G Innovation Centre, Guildford, UK, between the 28th and 31st of March, 2016. Stemcom 2016 is organized in cooperation with the European Alliance for Innovation (EAI).


Stemcom 2016 invites you to submit technical research and position papers in following two categories (i) Applied research papers and (ii) Industrial practice papers. Stemcom 2016 also invites you to submit demo, special session and tutorial proposals to this event. Specifically, the conference is soliciting original research articles contributions that cover the following topics (but are not limited to):

Track 1: Energy Management Approaches in:

Networks for  Smart Cities
