Call For Papers

As the name suggests, the BalkanCom is held in the countries in
the Balkan Peninsula. The goal of the conference is to bring together
researchers in academia, research labs and industry from all over the
world to this historical region. The goal is to address the important
challenges in the evolving world of Communications and Networking,
while at the same time bolstering the potential and talent that is
found in this exciting and dynamic region.
The first edition of the conference will take place on
May 31 - June 2, 2017 in Tirana, Albania—one of the largest cities in
the Balkan Peninsula. The theme of the conference, Engaging the
Balkan Region through Communication and Networking, is fitting for
the Balkan Peninsula, which has a rich history and needs indeed
increased communication and networking in every sense of the word.
We seek original completed and unpublished work not currently under
review by any other journal/magazine/conference.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Wireless systems and networks
* Communication protocols (transport, routing, link, and physical layers)
* Optical communication systems
* Cross-layer design and optimization
* Information theory and coding
* Signal processing for communications
* Green communication and networking
* Resource management
* Deployment scenarios and experiences
* Infrastructures, Platforms, testbeds, and software
