International Symposium on Resilient Communication Systems


Symposium Chairs Technical Program Chair


The major purpose of this symposium is to extend and endorse particular concepts that will generate novel research and codify resilience in next generation communication system designs.

Many commercial and government applications require reliable and secure communications for effective operations. These communications are often challenged in contested environments – whether from hostile states in an anti-access area denial scenario, degraded infrastructure following a man-made or natural disaster, or nite spectrum pressure that restrict agility. The symposium will highlight how incorporation of resiliency in communications systems can support a wide range of applications given uncertainty in the communication environment.
