The Joint Conference (28th Ka and Broadband Conference (Ka), and 40th International Communications Satellite Systems Conference (ICSSC)) will explore the evolution and interoperability of telecommunication, navigation and Earth observation satellite systems; constellation and small satellite systems advances; optical and quantum communications; telecommunications & navigation systems for space exploration with extension of the 5G network to near Earth, lunar, and deep space environments; satellite-to-cell or direct-to-mobile service; latest results in propagation research at Ka, Q/V and higher frequency bands; navigation; vehicle autonomy and human exploration; broadband data backhaul from scientific missions and remote sensing; and the challenges of radio frequency interference and orbital debris control and mitigation.
This year’s event will bring together researchers, practitioners and experts in academia, industry, space agencies and regulatory organizations around the world to examine challenges and potential solutions to address the emerging new opportunities. The Joint Conference is also a unique occasion for participants to network, strengthen alliances, and establish new partnerships and collaborations.
Papers are solicited in all areas of activity covering the topics below. At this stage, authors are invited to submit via the Joint Conference website a reasonably detailed abstract (maximum 2 pages, including title, authors’ name(s), affiliation(s) and email address(es), and text, figures and references) by the abstract’s submission deadline to either Ka or ICSSC. In deciding which Conference (Ka or ICSSC) to submit to, authors may wish to note that Ka papers will be published in the Online Proceedings (ISSN-2573-6124 online) of the Conference web site, and indexed in Elsevier SCOPUS and Engineering Village Compendex, whereas ICSSC papers will be professionally published by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), London, and searchable and accessible on the online platforms of both IEEE Xplore and IET Digital Library.
