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 13th International Conference on Signal Processing and Communication Systems, ICSPCS’2019, follows the very successful ICSPCS'2017 and ICSPCS'2018. 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. Papers dealing with signal processing for 5G and beyond and for minimising energy use (Green Communications) are very welcome, too. Similarly the conference welcomes papers concerns with protocols for the Internet of Things (IoT) and Smart Grid.
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, with the security of networks and information transmitted and stored, as well as other unconventional applications of signal processing and/or telecommunications modeling techniques.

For submission guidelines, please follow the 'Submission Guidelines' button at the top of the page.
Each of the submitted papers will receive 3 independent reviews and it is expected that the acceptance rate will be around 30 to 40% and not exceed 50%.

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Previously unpublished contributions to the following technical areas, but not limited to, are solicited:
