General Information

ICTRS - the International Conference on Telecommunications and Remote Sensing, is a leading international discussion and knowledge dissemination forum that brings together Researchers and Practitioners interested in Telecommunications and Remote Sensing. In 2019, ICTRS will be held in Rhodes, Greece, following previous editions in Spain (Barcelona, 2018), The Netherlands (Delft, 2017), Italy (Milan, 2016), Greece (Rhodes, 2015), Grand Duchy of Luxembourg (Luxembourg, 2014), The Netherlands (Noordwijkerhout, 2013), and Bulgaria (Sofia, 2012).

The conference is organized by the international institute IICREST and co-organized by ARSIT - the Association for Radio Systems and Intelligent Telecommunications. Cooperating organizations are: AUTH - Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, TU Delft - Delft University of Technology, and AMAKOTA Ltd.
ICTRS 2019 is organized under the auspices of URSI.

Goals and Topics

Providing a specialized forum to researchers and practitioners interested in telecommunications and remote sensing, ICTRS welcomes not only foundational contributions but also more application-oriented ones. Hence, the conference areas are organized in two tracks, namely Foundations Track and Applications Track. Particular areas of interest within each of the mentioned tracks, are: FOUNDATIONS TRACK: (i) Wireless Telecommunications and Networking; (ii) Electromagnetic Waves and Fields; (iii) Electronics and Photonics; (iv) Remote Sensing and Data Interpretation; (v) Context Awareness. APPLICATIONS TRACK: (vi) Green Radio Communications; (vii) Remote Sensing and Environment; (viii) Wireless Telecommunications and Military Applications; (ix) Remote Sensing and Defence; (x) Tele-Medicine Applications; (xi) Context Aware Mobility Solutions.
