)-- IEEE GLOBECOM 2014 (www.ieee-globecom.org/2014), the premier international event dedicated to driving innovations and technological breakthroughs in nearly every telecommunications field, has announced April 1 as the “Call for Papers” deadline for original Industry Forum & Exhibition (IF&E) and technical symposium presentations. To be held December 8 – 12 in Austin, Texas, the five-day flagship event of the IEEE Communications Society will host more than 1,500 attendees with keynotes, panels, tutorials workshops and symposia detailing key areas in telecommunications ranging from next generation broadband, wireless, multimedia, image and voice advancements to e-Health, Internet of Things (IoT), game theory, power-line, satellite, space, green and social networking communications.
“IEEE GLOBECOM provides a profound opportunity for international scientists, government and industry professionals and academia to share their visions and ideas for a better future,” says Professor Theodore (Ted) S. Rappaport of New York University. Formerly a professor at The University of Texas at Austin, Rappaport is part of the team that is bringing the IEEE GLOBECOM 2014 conference to Austin for the first time. “It is an honor to greet all the thousands of attendees that return to this premier international experience annually, as well as the hundreds of fresh faces that join us each year to learn about the latest research in their fields and form bonds with colleagues that will last a lifetime.”
“Austin also has all the amenities you can hope for in a host site. Known as the 'Live Music Capital of the World,' participants will have the chance to venture throughout one of the nation’s largest cities and enjoy the many delights provided by more than 250 live music venues, world-class museums, one-of-a-kind shopping, beautiful outdoor recreational spaces, and fantastic cuisine that spans from the world’s best Tex-Mex restaurants to a mobile concession phenomenon that serves everything from gourmet donuts to Chi'Lantro's taco-and-Korean barbecue,” adds Professor Rappaport.
Starting on Monday, December 8, IEEE GLOBECOM 2014 will feature a comprehensive technical program that includes six keynote speakers, 12 symposia, an array of tutorials and workshops, an Industry program targeting practicing engineers and IF&E sessions highlighting advancements in every area of broadband, wireless, multimedia, data, image and voice communications.
