I've just come across some interesting facts about Sat Coms in an article on the ESA website which I thought I'd share:   ·         Satcoms is the largest sector in the space business; half of all launches are for communication satellites.   ·         Out of a total of 1200 satellites in orbit more than 50% were communications satellites.   ·         ... read more...

Communication networks face a potentially disastrous “capacity crunch”. Two Royal Society meetings will combine research in cutting edge information theory adapted to account for the nonlinear dynamics of optical systems, radical network architectures grounded in mathematics to enhance utilisation of the finite capacity, advanced material science to provide new tools and uniquely economic analysis to scope the urgency of the issues.

Discussion Meeting: Communication networks beyond the capacity crunch
11 – 12 May 2015
The Royal Society, London

Satellite meeting: Communication networks beyond the capacity crunch – further discussion
13 – 14 May 2015
The Royal Society at Chicheley Hall, home of the Kavli Royal Society Centre, Buckinghamshire

The satellite meeting at is intended to be a more focused discussion of the issues raised during the London discussion meeting, and possible solutions. The organisers intend that many of the talks at the satellite meeting will be given by early-career researchers and we have recently opened a call for proposals for short talks and posters to be presented at this meeting. I would be very grateful if you could share this information with any relevant colleagues – both in the UK and overseas, to encourage applications. The call closes on 6 February.

More information on how to apply is available on the meeting webpage, and the Royal Society is able to offer travel and accommodation support to participants selected to make a full presentation.
