CFP: Special Issue on Signal Processing Methods for Diversity and its Applications- EURASIP Journal on Advances in Signal Processing (Springer)

Wireless devices and applications have assumed essential roles in modern life. To satisfy the exponentially increasing demand for new reliable wireless resources, researchers have sought to overcome the limits of traditional methods such as Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) or Frequency Division Multiple Access (FDMA). As time and/or frequency dimensions are no longer enough to satisfy the needs of wireless markets, recent technologies and standards have been introduced to leverage maximum benefit from spatial diversity using, for example, Space Division Multiple Access or SDMA. SDMA has been used in various approaches including Blind Source Separation (BSS), Blind Identification or Equalization, and others. Recently, Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) techniques exploiting spatial diversity have been introduced in the recent IEEE 802.11n standard, in the form of MIMO -Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (or MIMO-OFDM).

This special issue seeks manuscripts that report advances in spatial diversity methods to develop new approaches or to improve existing techniques. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Blind source separation through spatial signal processing methods
  • Spatial domain blind system identification
  • Spatial diversity aspects of multiple-input multiple-output systems
  • System design of spatial division multiple access
  • Applications

Submission Schedule

Manuscript Due: February 1, 2011

First Round of Reviews: May 1, 2012

Publication Date: August 1, 2012

Submission Instructions

Before submission authors should carefully read over the Instructions for Authors, which are located at http://asp.eurasipjournals.com/authors/instructions. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the SpringerOpen submission system at http://asp.eurasipjournals.com/manuscript according to the submission schedule. They should specify the manuscript as a submission to the “Special Issue on Signal Processing Methods for Diversity and Its Applications” in the cover letter. All submissions will undergo initial screening by the Guest Editors for fit to the theme of the Special Issue and prospects for successfully negotiating the review process.
