It is our great pleasure to announce that the 16th IEEE International Symposium on Power Line Communications and its Applications will be held in Beijing, the capital city of China, from March 27 to March 30, 2012. Beijing is an old city with its history as capital for more than 800 years and a modernized international metropolis as well, hosting 2008 Olympic Games. ISPLC 2012 is fully sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society and is the flagship conference of the IEEE Communications Society Technical Committee on Power Line Communications. The conference aims at providing an opportunity to academic and industrial professionals including students to share their visions, exchange ideas and solutions, and present their latest research results on existing and future PLC systems.


Prospective authors are invited to submit original manuscripts related to all aspects of communications over power lines, including access/home/in-vehicle applications, utility applications, and Smart Grid. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

• Channel characterization and modeling (measurements and modeling of the channel and the noise)

• Electro-magnetic compatibility/interference and coupling

• Modulation, coding techniques, error control, and signal processing (including MIMO system)

• Multiple access techniques and MAC protocols

• Duplex and repeater techniques, routing and autonomous network functions

• Cognitive and cooperative algorithms and approaches

• Modem and LSI design

• System architectures and solutions

• Network planning, optimization, and service management

• Cross-layer optimization and service integration (PLC specific and higher layers, traffic control)

• Coexistence, interoperability and security in PLC

• Access, in-home, and in-vehicle PLC networks

• Smart Grid and utility applications

• Green communications

• Broadband and multimedia applications

• Experimental systems, field trials, and commercial networks

• Standardization and regulation, business perspectives.
