ISTC 2010 : 6th International Symposium on Turbo Codes & Iterative Information Processing
Call For Papers
The 6th International Symposium on Turbo Codes & iterative information processing will be held on Monday 6th – Friday September 10th, 2010 at Telecom Bretagne in Brest, France. The Symposium will be the opportunity to acquire a broad overview of the current status and advanced research in iterative methods and their application to information theory and digital communications. All original contributions will be considered, in both the theoretical and the application field. The non exhaustive list below gives possible topics for the papers submitted:
- error correction coding
- turbo codes and LDPC codes
- coded and turbo coded modulation
- detection and turbo detection
- equalization and turbo equalization
- synchronization and turbo synchronization
- multi-user detection
- bounds, performance and convergence
- algorithms for constituent codes
- interleaving and graphs
- fountain codes
- network coding
- cooperative communications
- joint source channel coding
- circuits and software
- current applications and standards
- new applications of the "message passing" method
The name of the symposium has been modified in order to enlarge the possibilities of submissions to the conference. It encompasses new application areas of turbo and message passing algorithms (i.e. neurosciences, data fusions, …).
The symposium will include regular papers for oral and poster sessions as well as some invited papers.
Some papers will be selected for publication of an extended version, in a special issue of the "Annals of Telecommunications" journal.
Authors are invited to submit a full 4-page paper before March 15, 2010 via symposium web page at:
where instructions will be available.
Information regarding registration, accommodation and transport will be given later. Please check on the Symposium web site.
Submission of papers deadline: March 15, 2010
Notification of acceptance: May 15, 2010
Final versions of papers and preferential rate registration deadline: June 15, 2010
