Significant efforts have been allotted to design and deploy global navigation satellite communications systems, Satellite navigation technologies, applications, and services experience still challenges related to signal processing, security, performance, and accuracy. Theories and practices on system-in-package RF design techniques, filters, passive circuits, microwaves, frequency handling, radars, antennas, and radio communications and radio waves propagation have been implemented. Services based on their use are now available, especially those for global positioning and navigation. For example, it is critical to identify the location of targets or the direction of arrival of any signal for civilians or on-purpose applications; smarts antennas and advanced active filters are playing a crucial role. Also progress has been made for transmission strategies; multiantenna systems can be used to increase the transmission speed without need for more bandwidth or power. Special techniques and strategies have been developed and implemented in electronic warfare target location systems.
The SPACOMM series of events constitutes an attempt to evaluate the state of the art on academia and industry on the satellite, radar, and antennas based communications bringing together scientists and practitioners with challenging issues, achievements, and lessons learnt.
We welcome technical papers presenting research and practical results, position papers addressing the pros and cons of specific proposals, such as those being discussed in the standard fora or in industry consortia, survey papers addressing the key problems and solutions on any of the above topics short papers on work in progress, and panel proposals.
Industrial presentations are not subject to the format and content constraints of regular submissions. We expect short and long presentations that express industrial position and status.
Tutorials on specific related topics and panels on challenging areas are encouraged.
The topics suggested by the conference can be discussed in term of concepts, state of the art, research, standards, implementations, running experiments, applications, and industrial case studies.

INSTRUCTION FOR THE AUTHORS
Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions to one of the IARIA Journals.
Important deadlines:Considering the upcoming holidays, submission deadline is extended:
Only .pdf or .doc files will be accepted for paper submission. All received papers will be acknowledged via an automated system.
Final author manuscripts will be 8.5" x 11", not exceeding 6 pages; max 4 extra pages allowed at additional cost. The formatting instructions can be found on the Instructions page. Helpful information for paper formatting can be found on the here.
Your paper should also comply with the additional editorial rules.
Once you receive the notification of paper acceptance, you will be provided by the publisher an online author kit with all the steps an author needs to follow to submit the final version. The author kits URL will be included in the letter of acceptance.
Posters are welcome. Please submit the contributions following the instructions for the regular submissions using the "Submit a Paper" button and selecting the contribution type as poster. Submissions are expected to be 6-8 slide deck. Posters will not be published in the Proceedings. One poster with all the slides together should be used for discussions. Presenters will be allocated a space where they can display the slides and discuss in an informal manner. The poster slide decks will be posted on the IARIA site.
For more details, see the Posters explanation page.
Work in Progress
Work-in-progress contributions are welcome. Please submit the contributions following the instructions for the regular submissions using the "Submit a Paper" button and selecting the contribution type as work in progress. Authors should submit a four-page (maximum) text manuscript in IEEE double-column format including the authors' names, affiliations, email contacts. Contributors must follow the conference deadlines, describing early research and novel skeleton ideas in the areas of the conference topics. The work will be published in the conference proceedings.
For more details, see the Work in Progress explanation page
Technical marketing/business/positioning presentations
The conference initiates a series of business, technical marketing, and positioning presentations on the same topics. Speakers must submit a 10-12 slide deck presentations with substantial notes accompanying the slides, in the .ppt format (.pdf-ed). The slide deck will not be published in the conference’s CD Proceedings. Presentations' slide decks will be posted on the IARIA's site. Please send your presentations to email@example.com.
Tutorials provide overviews of current high interest topics. Proposals should be for three hour tutorials. Proposals must contain the title, the summary of the content, and the biography of the presenter(s). The tutorials' slide decks will be posted on the IARIA's site. Please send your proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org
The organizers encourage scientists and industry leaders to organize dedicated panels dealing with controversial and challenging topics and paradigms. Panel moderators are asked to identify their guests and manage that their appropriate talk supports timely reach our deadlines. Moderators must specifically submit an official proposal, indicating their background, panelist names, their affiliation, the topic of the panel, as well as short biographies. The panel's slide deck will be posted on the IARIA's site.
