    Aims and Scope


    Annals of Telecommunications is an international journal publishing original peer-reviewed papers in the field of telecommunications. It covers all the essential branches of modern telecommunications, ranging from digital communications to communication networks and the internet, to software, protocols and services, uses and economics. This large spectrum of topics accounts for the rapid convergence through telecommunications of the underlying technologies in computers, communications, content management towards the emergence of the information and knowledge society. As a consequence, the Journal provides a medium for exchanging research results and technological achievements accomplished by the European and international scientific community from academia and industry.
