SCC is a biannual conference and organized by the Information Technology Society (ITG) of the Association for Electrical, Electronic and Information Technologies (VDE). The conference aims at bridging the gap between theory and applications as well as different communities working on communications.

The 14th SCC will take place in Karlsruhe, Germany, from March 10th to 13th, 2025.

We encourage contributions from both academia and industry presenting original work in various fields of communications like:

  • wireless communications (cellular, satellite, vehicular)
  • optical communications
  • sensor networks, Internet-of-Things (IoT) communications
  • industrial radio, low-latency & ultra-reliable communications
  • massive communications
  • cloud and fog-based RANs
  • distributed (storage) systems
  • communications and control

Topics of interest include but are not limited to

  • information theory
  • source and channel coding, semantic communications
  • communication theory and modulation formats
  • cryptography, privacy, and security
  • cooperative communications and network coding
  • machine learning for communications
  • energy efficient and sustainable communications
  • resource management and interference handling
  • localization and navigation, integrated sensing and communications
  • smart antennas and intelligent reflecting surfaces in communications
  • quantum information processing and quantum communications
  • molecular communications and biology-inspired data storage

The conference will feature complementary tutorials on March 10th. Tutorial speakers and topics will be announced via this website.

Important Dates

  • Paper submission deadline: September 27th, 2024
  • Notification of acceptance: December 18th, 2024
  • Final manuscript and author registration: January 17th, 2025

Paper Submission

The workshop both compromises oral and poster presentations. All papers are peer-reviewed and the proceedings will be submitted to IEEE Xplore. Camera-ready versions of full-length papers will be up to 6 pages long.

Prospective authors are invited to submit full-length, six-page papers, including figures and references, in English for peer review.

The paper submission system will open in July 2024.

Submission guidelines

Prospective authors are invited to submit high-quality original technical papers (max 6 pages, 10-point font size) for presentation at the conference and publication. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the SCC 2025 Proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore.

We reserve the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (including its removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference.

Papers are reviewed on the basis that they do not contain plagiarized material and have not been submitted to any other conference at the same time (double submission). These matters are taken very seriously and we will take action against any author who engages in either practice. Follow these links to learn more:

To be published in the SCC 2025 proceedings and to be eligible for publication in IEEE Xplore, an author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference at the full rate and the paper must be presented by an author of that paper at the conference. Exceptions may be granted by the General Chairs prior to the event.

All papers should be submitted using the standard IEEE conference templates. The page length for regular paper submissions is six (6) printed pages in 10 point font and papers must be written in English. It is the authors’ responsibility to ensure that the author list, the paper title, and the abstract of the submitted pdf file matches the information entered on the submission system registration page exactly. Please be aware that the author list cannot be changed in the final manuscript.
