The Irish Signals and Systems Conference (ISSC 2015)

Hosted by Institute of Technology, Carlow

June 24th - June 25th, 2015

Dear Colleague,
The 26th Irish Signals and Systems Conference, ISSC 2015, technically sponsored by IEEE UK and Ireland Signal Processing Chapter, will be held in Carlow, Ireland on 24-25 June 2015 and hosted by the Institute of Technology Carlow.

Call for Papers

Over the past 26 years, ISSC has become the premier conference in Ireland addressing all aspects of signals and systems. The conference focuses on Digital Signal Processing, Control, Communications, and related fields of ICT, and encompasses algorithm and system modelling, design, and implementation, for a broad range of applications.

On behalf of the Organising Committee I would like invite you to participate in the 26th Irish Signals and Systems Conference, ISSC 2015.

Subject to the conference registration requirements all accepted papers will be published by IEEE eXpress Conference Publishing in the conference proceedings and IEEE Xplore Digital Library. All Xplore-accepted publications are forwarded to Elsevier’s EI Compendex for indexing.

This year’s ISSC has a strong industrial contribution. Industry plenary speakers include Noel Murphy, Intel; Brendan Farley, Xilinx and Paul Colgan, IBM. The Industry session will cover a range of topics from More than Moore packaging technologies, IC design, Embedded Systems and IP considerations. Confirmed industry speakers are from MCCI, S3, Tomra, On Semi, Ferfics, Faz Technology and ARM.

We are pleased to announce the Irish Defence Forces participation at ISSC 2015 with a plenary speaker, technical papers and live demonstrations.

We also welcome submissions for Special Sessions on novel or emerging areas of research in signal processing, control and communications, particularly in relation to our theme: "Internet of Things". Papers relating to engineering education in the thematic areas are also welcome.
Please contact the conference General Chair ( or Technical Program Co-Chair ( with your suggestions.

Submission Guidelines

Prospective authors are invited to submit a 6-8 page (A4) fully formatted manuscript of original research.

Papers must be submitted via the online paper submission system - see Submit Your Paper on the conference website - . Paper applications will not be accepted by email.

Prospective authors are invited to submit a six-page maximum, fully formatted manuscript, in PDF format, reporting original research – see Guide For Authors page on the conference website -

A very limited number of Virtual Presentations will be permitted for those facing traveling difficulties. Permission to present virtually must be sought from the Conference Chair beforehand. Guidelines for Virtual Presentations will be made available in due course.

All papers will be reviewed by at least three members of the Technical Programme Committee. Following review, authors will be informed whether their paper is accepted and, if accepted, whether it will be orally presented or presented as a poster. The Technical Programme Committee will select high quality papers containing original work.

The Programme Committee will select high quality papers containing original work. The Programme Committee encourages submissions that include implementation or simulation aspects, along with theoretical analysis and design. There will be prizes for the best paper and the best poster presented at the conference.

I look forward to welcoming you to Carlow this summer.

Best Regards,

Dorel Picovici
