Aim and Scope

The Journal of Communications Software and Systems (JCOMSS) focuses on high-quality, internationally reviewed papers, that advance the state-of-art and applications in communications software engineering and communications systems particularly including new technologies, methods and algorithms, as well as reports on experiments with analysis of performances, and prototypes. The subjects covered by this journal include all aspects in communications software and systems in wired and wireless communications and multimedia technologies that have a significant potential to impact the enormous technical and commercial opportunities in the ICT sector. The journal is particularly interested in research results that add to the scientific understanding of the impacts that communication software engineering can have on systems and services management, quality control and reliability issues. The aim is to give opportunity the reader to benefit from experience, problems and solution described.
