more details to follow


WORKSHOPS & Co-located conferences

  • "ISSSE - International Symposium on Signals, Systems and Electronics"
    The ISSSE (International Symposium on Signals, Systems and Electronics) has been held every three years and has been organized under the sponsorship of URSI Commission C (Radiocommunication Systems and Signal Processing) and D (Electronics and Photonics) and has included aspects of URSI Commission B (Fields and Waves). In 2018 ISSSE will be held as part of the AT-RASC Conference in Gran Canaria. 
    Topics relevant to the conference are in the general areas of radio communications and signal processing including cognitive radio, localisation, radar green communications, Terahertz communications, devices and techniques for RF, remote sensing and MIMO systems amongst others.   Registration includes reception and Gala dinner with low rates for students.  As an URSI conference, the conference will award a student prize and a young scientist award.
