2018 41st International Conference on Telecommunications and Signal Processing (TSP)
July 4-6, 2018, Athens, Greece

FINAL DEADLINE Extension for Full Paper Submission: March 19, 2018 @ 6PM CET

Technically co-sponsored by 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 Proceedings, containing presented papers at the Conference, will be submitted for indexing to the IEEE Xplore® Digital Library registered under IEEE Conference Record #43564, SCOPUS, Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI) of Thomson Reuters, DBLP, and Google Scholar databases.

Authors of the best rated and presented papers will be invited for publishing in special issues of international journals.


Modern optical networks allow flexible transfer of huge data streams over very long distance. Software defined networking offers also flexible modulation schemes to increase distances and achieve high spectral efficiency. The networks additionally allow transfer of new demanding type of services – photonic services, providing very high optical signal fidelity including the preservation of precise timing. Such services include for example distributed sensing, precise time or stable frequency transmission. This new use of photonics networks, with no interference with the commodity traffic, is a rapidly growing area of research and development. Within the framework of the 2018 41st International Conference on Telecommunications and Signal Processing (TSP) held during July 4-6, 2018 in Athens, Greece, we invite you to present and discuss advances in the research and development of flexible photonic transmission systems and their services. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

- Flexible all optical networks
- High speed data transmission
- Software defined optical networks (SDON)
- Optical spectrum sharing
- Precise time / stable frequency transmission
- Quantum key distribution (QKD)
- Line codes and modulation formats
- Optical networks security
- Quality of Services (QoS)
- Optical fiber sensors
- Distributed sensing
- Photonic services
