)-- The IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC), the flagship event of the IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc), will hold its next annual meeting from June 9 – 13, 2013 in the Central European cultural and industrial center of Budapest, Hungary. Themed “Bridging the Broadband Divide” IEEE ICC 2013 is expected to host more than 2,000 industry professionals, scientists, academics and government officials attending nearly 1,500 presentations highlighting the entire array of wireless and wireline communication technologies.
“Budapest is one of Europe’s most beautiful cities,” says IEEE ICC 2013 General Chair Christopher Mattheisen, Chairman-CEO of Magyar Telekom, Hungary. “Each year, millions travel there to sample the old-world culture and modern-day amenities. We’re honored to have such an historic site serve as our first-ever venue in Eastern Europe. It will be especially thrilling to discuss the emergence of the latest communications innovations during the day and then at night experience the lovely Danube River, magnificent museums, castles and cathedrals.”
Beginning on Sunday, June 9, the five-day international event will hold the first of two days of workshops and tutorials highlighting topics such as machine-to-machine communications, advances in wireless sensor networks, energy harvesting, intelligent vehicular networking, mobile consumer health care, cognitive radio & green networking, the future Internet and cloud computing. Over the next three days, the conference will then offer more than 1,000 keynotes, high-level business panels, industrial forums and scientific paper presentations grouped into 12 thematic tracks and 18 to 20 parallel sessions. Specific areas of interest include:
· E-health, Power Line, Smart Grid & Wireless Communications
· Tactical Communications & Operations
· Satellite & Space Communications
· Data Storage, Access Systems Networking
· Green Communication Systems & Networks
· Communication Theory
· Signal Processing for Communications
· Optical Networks & Systems
· Next Generation Networking
· Communication QoS, Reliability & Modeling
· Ad-hoc & Sensor Networking
· Communication Software & Services
· Communication & Information Systems
· Cognitive Radio & Networking
Most recently at IEEE ICC 2012 held in Ottawa, Canada, thousands of international attendees attended nearly 1,500 technical presentations in addition to witnessing the highly-informative keynotes of leading industry experts such Ian Akyildiz of Georgia Tech, who spoke on molecular nano-communication networks; H. Vincent Poor of Princeton University, who addressed information security and privacy; Raj Jain of Washington University, who highlighted the Next Generation Internet; and Victor Bahl of Microsoft, who outlined the latest cloud computing advances.
The conference was further earmarked by the Exhibition of Innovation, which displayed the products and services of more than 20 leading international corporations. This included the patronage of Ericsson, which has already joined with Magyar Telekom as a patron of IEEE ICC 2013, where a wide range of opportunities are currently available for companies looking to maximize their presence at this premier, international communications event.
