Call for Papers

ICUMT is an IEEE technically co-sponsored (approved) premier annual international congress providing an open forum for researchers, engineers, network planners and service providers in telecommunications targeted on newly emerging systems, standards, services, and applications.

The aim of ICUMT is to bring together international players in telecommunications, robotics and control systems. The congress will consist of open call sessions, workshops, industrial panels and exhibitions.

The call for papers can be downloaded as a PDF file as well.
