Welcome to ICT 2018

The beautiful city of St Malo in Brittany, curves out to sea on a stunning natural harbour that has created some of the best sandy beaches on the Emerald Coast, is hosting the 25th edition of the International Conference on Telecommunications (ICT2018). The conference will take place at the prestigious conference centre “Palais du Grand Large” in Saint Malo, France. To have a better view on part of Saint Malo and the Palais du Grand Large facilities click on the following video:

This year’s theme focuses on recent, terahertz (THz) technology that has attracted a great deal of interest from academia and industry. This is due to a number of interesting features of THz waves, including the tens of gigahertz bandwidths available. The broad bandwidth of the THz frequency bands can be used to reach terabit-per-second (Tb/s) wireless indoor communication systems. This enables several new applications, such wireless Terabit/s file transferring, among others. This year, world-class researchers are invited to share their ideas on the development of this type communication systems.

ICT’2018 invites various communications technology developers to discuss the current status, technical challenges, of the future services and applications, as part of a rich conference program including Plenary talks, Tutorials, Workshops as well as Regular and Special Sessions.

The twenty-fifth edition of ICT conference, seeks to address and capture highly innovative and state-of-the-art research from academia, wireless industry as well as recent advances in standardization. The topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
