Call for Papers

Communication Systems worldwide have provided a rapidly growing and useful range of services and are continuing to evolve using Digital Signal Processing. The 8th International Symposium on DSP and Communication Systems, DSPCS’2005, has been planned by a group of academics and professionals to examine the plans for the future and the progress that has already been made in the field of DSP and their applications to communication systems, image processing and other aspects of the modern life. The organizing committee of the symposium decided to hold the 8th Symposium on DSP and Communication Systems on the Sunshine Coast on 19-21 December 2005. A major objective of the symposium will be to pursue the progression from communication and information theory through to the implementation, evaluation and performance improvement of practical communication systems using DSP technology.

This year the Symposium will be again combined with the Workshop on the Internet, Telecommunications and Signal Processing WITSP’05. Therefore, the topics of interest range from those of the physical layer to the application layer through all aspects of the protocols and processes required for the future Internet to operate better and the applications to utilize the full potential offered by the current and the emerging networking infrastructure. In addition, we expect that, as during the previous events, there will be several papers dealing with image, video and audio processing for multimedia, and forensic applications, as well as with the security of private and corporate data.

The selected papers from the combined DSPCS'03 & WITSP'03 in Coolangatta have been published by Springer in two books: "Signal Processing for Telecommunications and Multimedia" and "Advanced Wired and Wireless Networks"It is expected that, this year, the best 20 – 30 papers, judged by the Organizing Committee, will be again published in a form of an edited volume, apart from the conference proceedings.
