Abstract : This document contains the proceedings of the workshop Advanced Communication System Engineering, held May 26-29, 1987, in Sedona, Arizona. The workshop had as its objective to determine the state-of-the-art and explore future trends in design tools for communication system engineers, and to discuss the potential for utilization of optical processing in communication systems. These topics are all related to solving the large-scale communication system design problems of the future. Five panels were formed, each manned by experts from industry and universities and in some cases government representatives as well. The panels were: (a) Design tools of the future, aimed at trying to predict the needs of future communication system designers, (b) Computer-aided modelling, analysis, and design of communication systems, to discuss tools for the system engineer, (c) The status of optical signal processing, to propose new applications of optical processing, (d) A review of the state-of-the-art in communication system design,to describe the critical problems presently confronting designers, and (e) A group discussion: the role of government, industry, and universities in advanced communication system engineering, to bring out the cooperative and managerial problems that must be solved to make real improvements in the communication system design process. Each panel consisted of formal presentations and discussions.
