Present a Technical Paper

2022 Call for Papers is Now Closed

As always, great care was taken while choosing the papers to be presented at the 2022 IWCS Cable & Connectivity Industry Forum. Thirty members of the IWCS 2022 Symposium Committee, representing companies from seven unique countries, met in April to review hundreds of responses to the Call for Papers. Resulting from the strong Technical Paper submissions and carefully curated program will be an extremely high-caliber Technical Symposium, which is the cornerstone of the annual Cable & Connectivity Industry Forum. View the 2022 Event Program to preview the technical papers that will be presented at this year’s event.

The 2023 Call for Papers will open soon. The process for submitting abstracts will be very similar to previous years. Refer to the list of suggested topics below and start preparing your Technical Paper to submit for the IWCS 2023 Cable & Connectivity Industry Forum in Orlando, Florida, USA September 17–20, 2023. Sign up for the IWCS e-newsletter to receive important notifications regarding the 2023 Call for Papers.
