About these proceedings


This book constitutes the proceedings of the 8th International Conference on Wireless and Satellite Services, WiSATS 2016, held in Cardiff, UK, in September 2016. The conference was formerly known as the International Conference on Personal Satellite Services (PSATS) mainly covering topics in the satellite domain. As the scope of the conference widened to include wireless systems, the conference was renamed WiSATS.
The 22 revised papers were selected from 32 submissions and cover a broad range of related state-of-the-art topics in antennas and mobile terminals, symbol precoding and network coding schemes, energy efficient strategies in satellite communication and cloud radio access networks, smart grid communication and optimization, security issues in vehicular ad-hoc networks (VANET) and delay tolerant net-works (DTN), interference mitigation in high throughput geostationary and non-geostationary satellite systems.
