Foreword: This book contains the proceedings of ICTRS 2013 - the Second International Conference on Telecommunications and Remote Sensing, held in Noordwijkerhout, The Netherlands, on July 11-12, 2013. The proceedings consist of 20 high-quality research and experience papers that have not been published previously. The Conference was organized and sponsored by the Interdisciplinary Institute for Collaboration and Research on Enterprise Systems and Technology (IICREST), in cooperation with Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and AMAKOTA Ltd. ICTRS 2013 is performed under the auspices of the International Union of Radio Science (URSI). Further, the conference covers topics relevant to the work in a number of URSI Commissions, namely Commission A, Commission B, Commission C, Commission D, Commission E, Commission F, Commission G, Commission K, as well as topics relating to Space Solar Power System (SSPS). All this has inspired and influenced the scientific program of the conference that is concerned with the international developments and applications in the following directions: (i) Radio-Communications and Signal Processing (ii) Electronics and Photonics (iii) Electromagnetic Environment and Interference (iv) Solar Power Satellite Systems (v) Remote Sensing (vi) Electromagnetic Fields and Waves (vii) Context Awareness As seen from the above areas, the first four ones are mainly concerned with Telecommunications, while the others are mainly concerned with Remote Sensing and Context Awareness. This research orientation as well as the ICTRS’12 ‘heritage’ clearly show that even though ICTRS has adopted the URSI research agenda, it is also spreading its influence to a broader audience including all those researchers and practitioners who are interested in the topics of the conference. It is seen as well that since the start in 2012 well until now, we have been successful in establishing a small but focused Community of experienced academicians and practitioners who are inspiring the ICTRS developments. These developments are considered useful not only for URSI but also in general for the Telecommunications Community. Considering two types of submissions, namely invited submissions and regular submissions, we have selected, based on a review process driven by rigorous quality standards, 20 papers. 17 of these papers were selected for a 30-minutes oral presentation (Full Papers) and 3 papers were selected for a 20-minutes oral presentation (Short Papers). The results of the current event and the previous one are comparable - this indicates for stable development which we aim at sustaining and reinforcing in the future. Further, the authors of around three selected best papers will be invited to submit revised and extended versions of their papers to a special issue of the International Journal ANNALS OF TELECOMMUNICATIONS. The published papers are a good selection representing work concerning different relevant topics, including: Intelligent Methods of Radio Signals and Systems; Wave Propagation and Remote Sensing; Solar Power Satellite Systems; Context Awareness; etc. The high quality of the ICTRS 2013 program is enhanced by two keynote lectures, delivered by distinguished guests who are renowned experts in their fields, including (alphabetically): Hristo Kabakchiev (Sofia University “St. Kl. Ohridski”, Bulgaria) and Kazuya Kobayashi (Chuo University, Japan). In addition, the current Keynote Lecturers and a ’12 Keynote Lecturer, namely: Naoki Shinohara (Kyoto University, Japan) will take part in a panel discussion. Finally, an outstanding researcher from ……., Israel, Dan Censor will lead a discussion session that focuses on different aspects that concern Relativity Theory. These high points in the conference program would contribute to positioning ICTRS as a high quality event driven by a stable and motivated community. Building an interesting and successful program for the conference required the dedicated efforts of many people. We must thank the authors, whose research efforts are recorded here. We turn with special gratitude also to the Keynote Lecturers and the Program Committee for their support and enthusiasm. We thank SCITEPRESS for their willingness to publish the current proceedings. Last but not least, we would like to express our gratitude to the representatives of IICREST and AMAKOTA Ltd. for doing all necessary preparations for a stimulating and productive event – we would be happy if IICREST continues with organizing further editions of ICTRS, under the auspices of URSI! I would like to also mention the excellent collaboration on compiling the current proceedings with Canka Petrova who worked on behalf of IICREST in close collaboration with the Publisher, SCITEPRESS. We wish you all an inspiring conference and enjoyable stay in the beautiful Noordwijk area of The Netherlands. We look forward to seeing you next year in Luxembourg, for the Third International Conference on Telecommunications and Remote Sensing (ICTRS 2014), details of which will be made available at http://www.ictrs.org.
