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 14th International Conference on Signal Processing and Communication Systems, ICSPCS 2020, follows the very successful ICSPCS'2018 and ICSPCS'2019. 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 concerning 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.
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. Additionally, authors of the accepted papers will be invited to submit the extended versions of their papers to the special issue of MDPI Electronics Journal, which will be published in 2021. Further instructions will be announced once the conference program is finalized.
