8th International Conference on Signal Processing and
Communication Systems
15 - 17 December 2014, Gold Coast, Australia
Call for Papers
Communication Systems worldwide have provided a rapidly growing and useful range of services and are
continuing to evolve using a multitude of Signal Processing techniques. The 8th International Conference
on Signal Processing and Communication Systems, ICSPCS’2014, follows the very successful
ICSPCS'2013. A major objective of the Conference will be to pursue the progression from
communication and information theory through to the implementation, evaluation and performance
improvement of practical communication systems using Signal Processing technology. The Conference is
also planned to be a forum for presenting research into topics ranging from those of the physical layer to
the application layer. All aspects of the protocols and processes required for the future communication
systems to operate better and the applications to utilize the full potential offered by the current and the
emerging networking infrastructure are also encompassed. In addition, we expect that, as during the
previous events, there will be several papers dealing with image, video and audio processing for
multimedia, medical and forensic applications, as well as with the security of networks and information
transmitted and stored.

As in the previous years, the conference is technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society.
Accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE
Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.
Previously unpublished contributions to the following technical areas, but not limited to, are solicited:
