Space and Satellite Symposium

October 30, 2021 @ 8:00 am12:00 pm

Program and links to recordings can be found at

Information theory has fundamentally shaped space communication system design and operation. Space and satellite channels present a wide variety of challenging conditions ranging from Doppler to very low signal-to-noise to extreme delays. Information theory provides powerful and useful tools and concepts ranging from Forward Error Correcting codes to Age of Information.

Authors have been invited to submit their work on topics including, but not limited to:

Communication in high frequency (mmWave, THz, optical) bands
New protocol requirements
Energy-efficient communications
Hardware-constrained communications, especially radiation constraints
Latency, delay, and age of information
Multi-user information theory
Uncoordinated random access

Our special theme is Amateur Radio and Amateur Satellite theory and practice. Presentations that highlight the role of amateur radio are appreciated and will be given additional recognition at the event.

This event includes space and satellite inspired musical pieces that will premiere 30 October 2021.
