Conference Location
Call For Papers
As the name suggests, the BalkanCom is held annually in a country of the Balkan Peninsula. The goal of the conference is to bring together researchers in academia, research labs and industry from all over the world to this historical region. The conference addresses the important challenges in the evolving world of Communications and Networking, while at the same time bolstering the potential and talent that is found in this exciting and dynamic region. The first edition of the conference was held in 2017 in Tirana, Albania.

The second edition of the conference will take place on June 4-8, 2018 in Podgorica, Montenegro. The theme of the conference, Closing the Digital Gap, is fitting for the Balkan Peninsula, which is in the process of intensive development and needs increased communication and networking in every sense of the word.

We seek original completed and unpublished work not currently under review by any other journal/magazine/conference. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

    Wireless systems and networks
    Communication protocols (transport, routing, link, and physical layers)
    Optical communication systems
    Cross-layer design and optimization
    Information theory and coding
    Signal processing for communications
    Green communication and networking
    Resource management
    Deployment scenarios and experiences
    Infrastructures, platforms, testbeds, and softwarea
    5G wireless and beyond
