International Conference on Signals and Electronic Systems

September 14-17, 2008
Kraków, Poland


The Conference mission is to promote development of signal theory and processing, electronic circuits and systems. The Conference brings together researchers from both signal processing and circuit & systems communities as well as industrial developers to report on the latest scientific and theoretical advances, to discuss and debate major issues and to demonstrate state-of-the-art appli-cations. ICSES’08 is the 6th issue of a series started in 2000 and preceded by 22 annual national conferences, which were recognized as most important scientific forum of Polish circuits and signals society.

The conference ICSES'08 will take place in picturesque city Kraków (Cracow), the former capital of Poland, and one of the few places in the world where one can feel history intermingle with the present. A place which once visited cannot be forgotten.
The city is at the heart of a major cultural and university centre with development high-technology area.
Should you wish to learn about Kraków, consider visiting the following Internet services (follow these links):

History, Monuments, Streets, Events ... - another interesting service about Cracow
A virtual panorama of Cracow
- nice views of "Wawel" castle, Jagiellonian University, and Market Square


Cracow lies in a region of temperate climate. Weather changes are frequent due to the friction of humid air masses arriving from the Atlantic Ocean and dry, continental air masses coming in from the east. The average annual temperature fluctuates between 6 and 10 C degree. July is the warmest month and January the coldest. For current weather conditions for Cracow, please visit:
