On behalf of all the members of the Organising Committee, I would like to welcome you to the 6th International Symposium on DSP for Communication Systems.
The aim of the Symposium has been to bring together a group of researchers to examine plans for the future and evaluate the progress that has already been made in the field of DSP and the applications to communication systems. The response to the original call for papers has been very good, and the Committee has received 62 submissions. Out of that, 47 papers have been accepted, and finally 46 included in the Symposium proceedings.
At this point, I wish to thank the authors who put so many efforts, first in preparing their submissions, and then the camera-ready papers. I extend my sincere thanks to the members of the Advisory Committee for a thorough review of the papers. I also would like to thank Dr Parviz Doulai for preparing a keynote address “Multimedia Content Delivery over Internet Using Real-Time Streaming Technology.” This address, in line with the tradition of the previous DSPCS Symposia, extends the theme of the Symposium beyond the strict DSP related issues.
Finally, I want to thank the sponsors of the Symposium. Without their generous support, the DSPCS’02 would not materialise.
I hope that the breaks between technical sessions and the friendly atmosphere of Manly will facilitate peer-to-peer interactions and networking.
Welcome to Manly and enjoy the Symposium.
