The 18th European Wireless Conference (EW 2012) took place in Poznan, Poland, from the 18th to 20th April 2012, and was hosted by Poznan University of Technology in cooperation with Polish Society of Theoretical and Applied Electrical Engineering.
The 2012 edition aimed at addressing the key theme on "Cooperative Communications". Cooperative algorithms in the physical and higher layers help in approaching theoretical performance limits of wireless systems.
