Countdown for submissions ends

Greater bandwidth, higher frequencies, better availability and more reliability.

5G and Wi-Fi 6E are just two of the well-known wireless technologies that are opening up new, higher frequency bands for a broad range of applications. Along with the mmWave bands, the THz spectrum is currently being targeted at communication applications as well as sensor technology, e.g. for material analysis.

However, this does not mean that lower frequency ranges are losing their appeal. Quite the contrary. New wireless protocols are enabling applications that have high requirements in terms of availability, reliability and robustness ­ in the industrial, automotive and medical markets.

The Wireless Congress 2021 will focus on the latest developments and the practical application of advanced wireless systems in industry: 5G, 6G, Wi-Fi 6, TSN for wireless networks, resilient networks, wireless sensing, information-centric networking, software defined networking (SDN), next generation LPWAN and much more as well as the use of AI in communication networks.

The technical journal Elektronik, the Messe München – organizers of the electronica trade fair – and the German Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers' Association (ZVEI), are therefore staging the Wireless Congress: Systems & Applications on November 9-11, 2021 as a virtual conference.

The program committee of the Wireless Congress invites all experts in this field to submit proposals for presentations (30 min) and workshops or tutorials (1.5 – 3 h). Furthermore, we warmly invite representatives of academia to give an insight into their future-driven and application-oriented research.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, trends, design, technology and applications in the following sectors:


  •   Mobile Communication
  •   Low Power Wide Area Networks
  •   Software Defined Networking (SDN)
  •   AI in Communication Systems
  •   Emerging Technologies, e.g. Resilient Networking, Information Centric Networks
  •   Real Time Applications, Wireless TSN
  •   Software Defined Radio
  •   Wireless Sensing
  •   EMC and Interoperability
  •   Wireless Test and Measurement

  •   RF Semiconductors and Components
  •   Antenna Design
  •   Energy Harvesting for Wireless Systems


  •   4G, 5G and 6G, 6LoWPAN, Ant, Bluetooth, DECT, enOcean, IP 500, IQRF, KNX RF, LiFi, LoRa, LoRaWAN, Mioty, NeoCortec, NFC, Sigfox, ULE, Weightless, Wi-Fi, Wirepas, Zigbee, Z-Wave, etc.
  •   Standardization, Qualification, Certification and Compliance
  •   Regulatory Issues


  •   Wireless Automation, M2M
  •   Tactile Internet, VR/AR, URLLC, eMMB
  •   Automotive Wireless
  •   Wireless Internet of Things
  •   Health and Medical Wireless
  •   Wireless for Industrial Use
  •   Retrofit Integration of Wireless into Industrial Systems
  •   Smart Factory, Smart City, Smart Home and Metering
  •   Localization and Location Based Services


  •   Campus networks
  •   (Ultra) Low-Power Wireless Networks
  •   Wireless Sensor Networks, mMTC
  •   Security Threats & Countermeasures in Wireless Systems
  •   Gateways and Middleware for Wireless Networks
  •   Integration of Wireless into Backend Systems
  •   Seamless Management of Wireless Networks

Other topics out of the wide field of “Wireless Technologies" are welcome, too.

Presentations are to be held in English. Contributions shall cover fundamentals, recent trends, technologies, applications, standardization, certification and market forecasts. All contributions shall be purely technical and application-oriented. Marketing papers will not be accepted. All submissions will be carefully reviewed and selected by the program committee.

The papers will be published in the "Proceedings of the Wireless Congress 2020: Systems & Applications". Each paper will be scientifically referenced with page numbers. It also will be possible to provide a short paper only (1 to 3 pages) to complement the presentation slides instead of a full paper.

New format from 2021: Are you interested in product-specific presentations in our additional "Manufacturer Track"? Get in touch with us! Ms. Corina Prell, Sales Manager Events

We are looking forward to your submission!
