Welcome to the official website of the 2018 41st International Conference on Telecommunications and Signal Processing (TSP – IEEE Conference Record #43564), which will be held during July 4-6, 2018, in Divani Hotel Caravel *****, Vassileos Alexandrou 2, 16121, Athens, Greece.
In cooperation with the IEEE Region 8 (Europe, Middle East and Africa), IEEE Greece Section, IEEE Czechoslovakia Section, and IEEE Czechoslovakia Section SP/CAS/COM Joint Chapter, the TSP 2018 is organized by seventeen universities from Czech Republic, Hungary, Turkey, Taiwan, Japan, Slovak Republic, Spain, Bulgaria, France, Slovenia, Croatia, Greece, and Poland, for academics, researchers, and developers and it serves as a premier annual international forum to promote the exchange of the latest advances in telecommunication technology and signal processing. The aim of the conference is to bring together both novice and experienced scientists, developers, and specialists, to meet new colleagues, collect new ideas, and establish new cooperation between research groups from universities, research centers, and private sectors from the whole Europe, America, Asia, Australia, and Africa. The international expansion motivates the organizers in their effort to providing a platform for exchanging information and experience to help to improve the level and extent of scientific cooperation between university students, academics, and employees of research centers.
In addition, prospective authors are also invited to submit the extended version of their research papers for publishing in special issues of international journals Applied Sciences (ISSN 2076-3417), an international peer-reviewed open access journal on all aspects of applied natural sciences published by MDPI and indexed by Web of Science (Impact Factor in 2017: 1.689) and International Journal of Advances in Telecommunications, Electrotechnics, Signals and Systems (IJATES) (ISSN: 1805-5443).

Proceedings Indexing and Special Issues
All the accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings issued online, which (containing only presented papers at the conference) will be submitted for indexing to the IEEE Xplore® Digital Library – IEEE Conference Record #43564, Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI) of Thomson Reuters (formerly ISI Proceedings), SCOPUS, DBLP, and Google Scholar databases.
- IEEE Xplore® Digital Library, where the TSP 2011-2017 Proceedings are already indexed and abstracted, is an online delivery system providing web access to more than 4.43 million full-text documents from some of the world’s most highly cited publications in electrical engineering, computer science and electronics. It is a powerful resource for discovery of and access to scientific and technical content published by the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) and its publishing partners.
- Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI) of Thomson Reuters (formerly ISI Proceedings), where the TSP 2008-2017 Proceedings are already indexed, is a database accessible via Web of Science that helps researchers access the published literature from the most significant conferences, symposia, seminars, colloquia, workshops, and conventions worldwide. This resource offers a complete view of conference proceedings and their impact on global research, letting researchers use cited reference searching to track emerging ideas and new research beyond what is covered in the journal literature.
- SCOPUS, where the TSP 2008-2017 Proceedings are already abstracted, is the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature and quality web sources with smart tools to track, analyze and visualize research. It’s designed to find the information scientists need. Quick, easy and comprehensive, Scopus provides superior support of the literature research process.
- DBLP, where the TSP 2011-2017 Proceedings are already abstracted, is a computer science bibliography website hosted at Universität Trier, in Germany. It was originally a database and logic programming bibliography site, and has existed at least since the 1980s. DBLP listed more than 4.05 million articles on computer science in January 2018.
- Google Scholar, where the TSP 2011-2017 Proceedings are already abstracted, is a freely accessible web search engine that indexes the full text of scholarly literature across an array of publishing formats and disciplines. Released in November 2004, the Google Scholar index includes most peer-reviewed online journals of Europe and America’s largest scholarly publishers, conference proceedings, plus scholarly books, and other non-peer reviewed journals.
After the conference, selected papers will also be published in special issues of international journals:
High quality papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their work for potential publication in a Special Issue Selected Papers from the 2018 41st International Conference on Telecommunications and Signal Processing (TSP) of an international journal Applied Sciences (ISSN 2076-3417; CODEN: ASPCC7), an international peer-reviewed open access journal on all aspects of applied natural sciences published by MDPI and indexed by Web of Science (Impact Factor in 2017: 1.689), Scopus, Inspec, etc. The submitted papers must have at least 50% new material from the conference original papers.
Guest Editors: Assoc. Prof. Norbert Herencsar (Brno University of Technology, Czech Republic); Assoc. Prof. Francesco Benedetto (University of “Roma TRE”, Italy), Assoc. Prof. Jorge Crichigno (University of South Carolina, USA).
The extended version of selected TSP 2018 papers will be published in the International Journal of Advances in Telecommunications, Electrotechnics, Signals and Systems (IJATES) journal (ISSN: 1805-5443) – indexed by Google Scholar, CrossRef, WorldCat, EZB Elektronischen Zeitschriftenbibliothek, and Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) (papers to be published after significant extension and new review process).
