Welcome to the 11th Annual
2023 IEEE International Conference on Wireless for
Space and Extreme Environments

WiSEE 2023

Spaceflight involves critical sensing and communication in extreme environments such as planetary surfaces, space vehicles, and space habitats. The many challenges faced in space sensing and communication are extremely diverse and overlap significantly with those found in many terrestrial examples of extreme environments such as extreme hot or cold locations, extreme high- or low-pressure environments, critical control loops in aircraft and nuclear power plants, high-speed rotating equipment, oil/gas pipelines and platforms, etc. All of these environments pose significant challenges for radio-frequency or optical wireless sensing and communication and will require the application of a broad range of state of the art technologies in order to generate reliable and cost effective solutions. Although the specific challenges vary significantly from the environment to environment, many of the solutions offered by sensing, communication, and statistical signal processing technologies can be applied in multiple environments, and researchers focusing on space applications can benefit greatly from understanding the problems encountered and solutions applied in alternative environments.

This IEEE conference will bring together investigators from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the Canadian Space Agency (CSA), the European Space Agency (ESA), and other space agencies, along with aerospace and space defense industries and academic researchers, in an effort to understand and solve the emerging problems facing wireless sensing and communication in space and related extreme environments.

This year the IEEE WiSEE conference will be co-located with the IEEE International Conference on RFID Technology and Applications (IEEE RFID-TA) (4-6 September 2023). The two conferences will share sessions, keynote speakers and social events.

Full-length Research Papers (4-6 pages) or presentation abstracts (1-2 pages) are sought that address solution to problems in all areas of wireless sensing and communication in space and extreme environments related to spaceflight. Accepted and presented full papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Indexing databases.

In addition to the main area of interests, the conference hosts also a number of WiSEE workshops, which target specific topics. Each workshop has its own structure and contents. Full papers submitted to the WiSEE workshops will follow the same peer-review process forseen for the regular submissions. See the dedicated page for further information.
