Prof. Mischa Schwartz, Special Session Co-Chair
Dr. Jacob Baal-Schem, Special Session Co-Chair

This Special Session will feature presentations on important developments in Telecommunications (e.g. The History of DSL) and will include a panel session on the invention of Radio (Marconi vs. Popov vs. Branly).

Prospective authors and contributors are invited to submit original technical papers and proposals for tutorials, forum panel sessions, and workshops by the firm deadlines shown. Only timely submissions through EDAS at http://edas.info will be accepted.

Many historical developments occurred in Telecommunications during recent centuries and it is important to provide a critical discussion of these technological events to the professional audience. From the inventions of the telephone and radio, through the development of television and of digital means of transmission of information - all these subjects need historical coverage and merit professional discussions.

The discussion among countries, regarding "The father of Radio" will be a challenging subject both for the Panel members who will represent different views, and for the audience participating in the discussion.

Submission Deadlines:
Technical Papers and Tutorials: Extended Deadline - Monday, March 31, 2008
Workshops: 1 March 2008
