The next generation satellite services will cater the demands of 
personal services by bringing the satellite terminals directly to the 
hands of the user hence providing satellite personal services directly 
to the user. Technological advances in satellite communications have 
made it possible to bring such value added satellite services directly 
to the user by reducing the overall cost as well as addressing many 
technological challenges such as achieving mobility, having miniaturized 
antennas and terminal sizes, and providing high data rate links. With 
the unique broadcast nature and ubiquitous coverage of satellite 
networks, the synergy between satellite and terrestrial networks 
provides immense opportunities for disseminating wideband multimedia 
services to a wide range of audiences over large numbers of 
geographically dispersed people. It is evident that the satellite will 
play a complementary, but essential, role in delivering multimedia and 
telecommunication services to infrastructure-less region where the 
terrestrial high-bandwidth communication infrastructures are practically 
unreachable.  In such a context we introduce a new category claimed to 
be defined as Personal Satellite Services (PSATS) by means of extending 
the satellite services directly to the user for personal services such 
as communications, multimedia and location identification. Such 
opportunities are also currently fueling accelerated research in PSATS 
enabled systems which we cover in this conference. The services enabled 
by PSATS not only cover the requirements of an ordinary citizen but also 
provide defense personal services such as tracking, visualization and 
virtualization in a highly secure communication environment.

The conference will explore such techniques, and aims to serve as a 
premier international forum for discussions, bringing together academic 
and industrial researchers, practitioners, and students interested in 
future techniques relating to the satellite communications, networking, 
technology, systems, and applications.

The conference will consist of diverse technical tracks:

General Track:


- Satellite antenna designs, modulation and coding

- Synchronization, equalization and channel estimation

- Channel modeling for satellite communications

- MIMO communications for satellites

- Interference detection and mitigation techniques

- DVB and broadband access technologies

- Networking topologies for broadband over satellite links

- IP over satellite and QoS support

- Reliable multicast protocols, transport protocol over satellite

- Onboard switching and processing Delay tolerant networking

- Radio resource management and packet scheduling

- Power control, hand-over issues and call admission control

- Emerging standardizations and issues

- Satellite navigation systems, services and tracking

- Real-time multimedia streaming, broadcast/multicasting

- Security related issues of satellite communications

Value added services and future systems:


- Voice, broadband Internet, DVB, positioning

- Infrastructure and network management

- IP over satellite and heterogeneous networks

- Quality of Service (QoS) issues

- Ka-band and emerging frequency bands

- Earth observation

- Emergency service assistance

Convergence of Satellite System and Emerging Technologies:


- Convergence with Terrestrial, Wireless Access, and Sensor Networks

- Cooperative/distributed network architectures

- Quantum satellite communications

- Ground terminals with Cognitive Radio functionalities

- Convergence with optical networks
