6th International Workshop on

Multi-Carrier Spread Spectrum
MC-SS, MC-CDMA, OFDM, and related topics
MC-SS 2007

May 07-09, 2007
Herrsching, Germany

Wrap up

Thanks to everyone who contributed to the success of MC-SS 2007!

  • The MC-SS 2007 proceedings can be purchased at Springer, see Springer

Call for Participation:

The success of next generation (beyond 3G) wireless systems will depend on the concepts and technology innovations in architecture and in efficient utilization of the allocated spectrum. Developments of digital communication systems in the past decades have enabled the introduction of efficient modulation and coding techniques for robust and spectrally efficient data, speech, audio and video transmission. Among these are multi-carrier modulation (e.g., OFDM), spread spectrum signalling (e.g., DS-CDMA), and their combination, called multi-carrier spread spectrum (MC-SS), which are considered as potential candidates for the beyond 3G technology. Therefore, the 6th International Workshop on Multi-Carrier Spread Spectrum will be focused on (but not limited to) the following topics:

  • Broadband beyond 3G cellular systems based on multi-carrier modulation (OFDM), spread spectrum techniques (DS-CDMA) and combinations of both (MC-SS, MC-CDMA, MC-DS-CDMA), covering access/distribution, mobile/fixed, and outdoor/indoor applications;
  • Efficient coding, modulation, multiplexing, and detection strategies;
  • Low-complexity joint detection and interference cancellation techniques;
  • Space-time coding/MIMO/smart antennas in conjunction with multi-carrier systems;
  • Synchronization and channel estimation;
  • Cell- and frequency planning aspects;
  • Realization and implementation issues.
