Internet access is undergoing a fundamental change. A steadily increasing spectrum of services is attracting a rapidly growing number of users which, in turn, wish to access these services 'anytime and anywhere'. In order to meet this demand, Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) technologies are becoming extremely important and vendors and standardisation bodies respond to this development with new and powerful BWA technologies. Supporting transmission rates up to several megabits per second at distances far as tens of kilometres while providing full mobility support, these technologies provide the long-awaited means for delivering any telecommunication service over the Internet.

BWA technologies are yet in their infancy and one outcome is that many are far from being complete and optimised for such a versatile environment like the Internet. Consequently, BWA is currently receiving much attention by the research community. By organising this 3rd IEEE BWA Workshop, it is our intention to bring together and provide an international forum for this research community. In this line, the workshop programme covers various aspects of these technologies including but not limited to:
