The 15th International Conference on Telecommunications, ConTEL 2019, will be held in Graz, Austria, on July 3–5, 2019. Through its technical program, the conference will provide an opportunity for the academic and industrial communities to address new research challenges, share solutions and discuss issues in information and communication technology (ICT) referring to modern telecommunications.

The ConTEL 2019 aims to reflect on current and emerging networking technologies that enable ubiquitous Internet and communications as key drivers of connected information society. With new services and increasing demand, there is a growing need for improvement in networking infrastructure – not just in terms of quality and performance, but also in scalability, mobility, energy efficiency, and multiple technologies integration. Original research papers are solicited that present theoretical, as well as applied, practical and experimental work related to the areas and topics of interest listed below. The conference program will offer technical sessions, presenting the latest advances through peer-reviewed regular and special sessions, as well as workshops with focus on the latest breakthroughs in selected areas related to the conference. Graz is the capital city of Styria in the southeast corner of Austria. It is located in between rolling hills, to the north, east and west, only open to the south. The Old Town in Graz is one of the best preserved city districts in Central Europe and listed in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
