International conference : ICUMT 2010


ICUMT 2010
ICUMT is an annual international congress providing an open forum for researchers, engineers, network planners and service providers in telecommunications and control systems targeted on newly emerging algorithms, systems, standards, services, and applications. ICUMT is positioned as a premier international annual congress for the presentation of original and fundamental research and engineering results. The aim of ICUMT is to bring together Russian and international players in telecommunications and control systems. The congress will consist of plenary sessions, open call sessions and workshops.
The ICUMT 2010 is supported by research and the Popov Society and regarded as very important part of scientific life of Russia.
The congress has strong industrial support from worldwide leading vendors as well as national companies and SMEs.
The conference proceedings (including workshops) will be published in research Xplore (approved) and indexed in relevant databases (such as EI-index).
Authors of selected outstanding papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers for consideration of publication in a special issue.
