Articles summarizing ICUMT 2010 and workshops
in IEEE Communications Magazine

Dear Colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to the ICUMT 2011 Congress, which will be held this year in Budapest, Hungary on October 5-7, 2011.

ICUMT is an annual international congress providing an open forum for researchers, engineers, network planners and service providers targeted on newly emerging algorithms, systems, standards, services, and applications, bringing together leading international players in telecommunications, control systems, automation and robotics. The event is positioned as a major international annual congress for the presentation of original and fundamental research and engineering results.

Following the success of the first two events that took place in St. Petersburg (2009) and in Moscow (2010), each time attracting 200-300 participants from both academia and industry, ICUMT 2011 is a three-days event offering a number of plenary sessions, technical sessions, and specialized workshops. The Congress will consist of two tracks, i.e. ICUMT-T (Congress on Telecommunications), and ICUMT-CS (Congress on Control Systems, Automation and Robotics).

The Congress proceedings (including workshops) will be published in IEEE Xplore (confirmed) and indexed in relevant databases (such as EI-index). Authors of selected outstanding papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers for consideration of publication in a journal special issue.

Regarded by many as one of World's most beautiful cities, Budapest (the "Paris of the East" and the "Queen of the Danube") has become the most popular travel destination in Central Europe along with Vienna and Prague. Millions of tourists visit the city every year. Located on both sides of the Danube River and featuring both the rolling hills of Buda (on the west bank) and the organized, grid-like layout of Pest (east bank), these two very different cities united by convenience into one city offer the traveller a Viennese-style aura at half the price. It is still very much its own city. The people are charming, and for the most part very helpful. They are proud of what this ancient capital has to offer, and proud of their contributions to European culture, especially in the field of music, a universal language one doesn't need to speak to appreciate.
