    Telecommunications and Emerging Technologies

    Resp. : A. NAJID & A. TRIBAK

    Due to the increased needs of data transmission that requires an increase in the capacity of ground and satellites communications, and thanks to the development of technologies involved in ground segment communications as in space, born many I + D + innovation initiatives focused on providing solutions to provide the services that society demands.

    ... show more

    Many of the initiatives involve developing new technologies in frequency bands not used for these services before such as Q/V/W, as also proposed by developments on the ground segment to perform optical links with GEO satellites and reach the terabit of transmission. On the other hand, the European Space Agency announced the dedication of resources to the development of mega-constellations as one of the greatest technological challenges in the current telecommunications business. This has an impact in the areas of development of communications systems to promote research and innovation in issues with the ground segment and the space, and the development of new concepts in early stages of mission analysis. The aim of this session is to bring together researchers in these areas, establishing a forum for discussion on recent developments, which serve as a platform of meeting to generate links and future collaborations enhancing the development of this area of business and R&D. In the presented framework, the topics of interest are as follows:

    • Statistical signal processing and compressive sensing
    • Signal processing for IoT and Big Data
    • Interference management for modern communication systems
    • 5G physical layer
    • Antenna propagation
    • RF components and systems
    • Smart antennas
    • RFID and SDR
    • Design, simulation and performance evaluation
    • Energy harvesting in wireless systems
    • Radar target detection, localization and tracking
    • Radio localization and positioning

    It is not easy to process, analyze and store this massive data with conventional computing systems. We need large-scale distributed infrastructures and new software solutions to transform efficiently this massive data of various types into valuable information and meaningful knowledge. Cloud computing has a great potential to deal effectively with this massive data in order to create useful services and applications. The convergence of cloud computing and big data requires new and innovative infrastructure, middleware, framework, protocols, services, and applications. The focus of this special session is on recent research, technological advances and challenges about the development of new ideas, techniques and tools in the areas of Big Data and Cloud Computing.

    Smart E-learning


    E-learning or Online Learning is a web-based teaching system. Along with the development of information and communication technology (ICT), e-learning has emerged as an innovative approach. Besides, it provides an alternative to traditional learning and teaching. It enables students to access information without time restrictions or geographical constraints. Moreover, it provides interactivity and active learning,

    which promote collaboration among learners and educators. Many studies have been conducted for an effective learning for example by integrating gamification and game-based learning systems since there is ubiquitous presence of technology in classrooms. However, there are many other studies on recommender system or personalized intelligent agents that aim in assisting the learners to find personalized learning path or materials that meet their needs. In addition, the use of ontology for knowledge representation in knowledge-based recommender systems for e-learning is another research area… Authors are welcome to submit their works in these research fields:

    • Adaptive learning systems/recommender System
    • Augmented-reality and e-learning
    • Distance Tutoring
    • Learning problem detection systems
    • Artificial Intelligence in e-learning
    • Opinion mining in E-learning
    • E-learning and IOT/ Smart classroom
    • E-learning and BlockChain
    • E-learning assessments

    Cyber Security


    Cyber security is one of the most important challenge for digital transformation and Internet of the future. In deed, the evolution of the number as well as the nature of cyber attack proof that traditional solutions are neither more able to harden systems nor to fight efficiently against this huge quantity of attacks. ... show more The next generation of security solution have to deal with evolving quantity of data generated by different security sources such as systems logs, network traffic, specialised security repository, firewall events, and different end point agent and so on. In this particular context, we need more and more different way to explore data in an efficient way by using machine learning and artificial intelligence technologies as powerful tool to build solution with capacity to identify efficiently malicious activities as first step. As second step, it should also be able to automate detection and reaction to these security incident. By introducing AI in cyber security, new fields became hot research topics such as cognitive cyber security, cyber resilience, cyber threat intelligence, detection and reaction automation and so on. The security of future Internet depend closely to the success of research in these particular fields
