Call for Papers

The Department of Electrical Engineering, Politeknik Negeri Semarang, Indonesia and IEEE Indonesia Section are organizing the 6th IEEE International Conference on Communication, Networks and Satellite  (COMNETSAT 2017).

COMNETSAT 2017 is aiming at the current state of technology and the outcome of ongoing research in the area of Communications, Networks and Satellite. The goal of the conference is to facilitate researchers around the world to publish and to share their current research in the area of Communications, Networks and Satellite.

Prospective authors are invited to submit original technical papers for presentation at the conference. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the COMNETSAT 2017 Conference Proceedings and will be submitted to IEEE Xplore after each paper is thoroughly reviewed and (if any) satisfactorily modified according to the reviewer comments.
