The Irish Signals and Systems Conference (ISSC2012)

NUI Maynooth, 28-29 June 2012

Call for Papers

Dear Colleague,

The 23rd IET Irish Signals and Systems Conference, ISSC 2012 (, will be held at NUI Maynooth on the 28th and 29th of June, 2012. It will be hosted by the Callan Institute and the Department of Electronic Engineering. The Conference focuses on all aspects of digital signal processing, control and communications, and encompasses algorithm, circuit and system modelling, design, and implementation. This year, we would like to invite you to consider submitting papers on the theme of smart spaces - where there is a combination of sensing our environment, analysing noisy streaming signals, and using this information to inform decisions and enable distributed control of large systems. Examples could include work on smart electricity and water networks, urban areas or transport networks.

Submission Guidelines

Prospective authors are invited to submit a six-page (A4) fully formatted manuscript of original research by Monday, 26th March, 2012.

All papers will be reviewed by at least three members of the Technical Programme Committee. Following review, authors will be informed whether their paper is accepted and, if accepted, whether it will be orally presented or presented as a poster. The Technical Programme Committee will select high quality papers containing original work.

I look forward to welcoming you to NUI Maynooth this summer.

Best Regards,

Ronan Farrell
