Swe-CTW 2022

The 2022 Swedish Communication Technologies Workshop (Swe-CTW 2022) was held virtually on November 30th,  2022.

Swe-CTW 2022 will bring together researchers and research students in the general area of communication technologies and related areas. The workshop is based on the previous Swe-CTW held in Stockholm 2011, Lund 2012, Göteborg 2013, Västerås 2014, Karlstad 2015, Sundsvall 2016,  Göteborg 2017,  Linköping 2018Lund 2019, Virtual 2020-21 and modeled on similar successful events in Denmark and Australia, emphasizing the active participation of young researchers and research students. In addition, during the years, the aim for the workshop has been to have two tutorials.

Workshop Format

The workshop will feature tutorials, poster presentations of submitted abstracts, and invited talks by the top nominated papers for

  • IEEE Sweden VT-COM-IT Joint Chapter Best Student Journal Paper Award;
  • IEEE Sweden VT-COM-IT Joint Chapter Best Student Conference Paper Award

Further details about the nomination process for the above paper awards, eligibility, selection criteria, deadlines, selection process, presentation, and previous years’ winners you can find at the homepage 


This year, due to the circumstances, the workshop will be held virtually in form of online meeting and will be mainly devoted to the presentation of the nominated papers.
