New York, NY – The 2015 IEEE International Conference on Communications will host its next annual event from 8-12 June 2015 at the ExCel London convention centre in London, UK. In addition to experiencing the numerous local iconic attractions like Canary Wharf, The Olympic Park and Museum of London, attendees will also have the ability to explore London’s Tech City, the fastest growing technology cluster in Europe and the heart of the nation’s rapidly accelerating digital economy.
“London is not only a leading global centre of international trade and finance, it is one of the most competitive cities in the world,” says Executive Chair Professor Jiangzhou Wang of the University of Kent, UK. “As a gateway to Europe and the rest of the world, technological opportunities are rampant in this country, which is constantly reinvigorating itself through innovation and scientific excellence. Nearly 7.5 percent of the workforce is currently employed in the digital industry with this sector’s job growth expected to outperform all other occupations by 2020. This culture is also flourishing with entrepreneurs and scientists looking to immerse themselves in the technologies that are constantly driving breakthroughs in the UK’s globally-renowned network of medical schools, universities and hospitals.
“With the highest number of paper submissions (3342) in the conference’s 50-year history, IEEE ICC 2015 offers an unsurpassed educational agenda along with the opportunity to exchange visions and viewpoints with scholars and the industry’s leading researchers. This will all be performed against a backdrop committed to career advancement and providing entry to the world’s finest restaurants, entertainment, attractions and shopping experiences.”
Themed “Smart City & Smart World,” IEEE ICC 2015 will be highlighted by more than 1,800 presentations, panels and forums as well as the exhibits and patronage of numerous technology industry leaders including Qualcomm, Huawei, Nokia, GENBAND, Keysight, InterDigital, P.I. Works, Airvana, SoliD, Imperial College London, DIGILE, Fore-Mont, Anritsu, Artech House, Springer, Cambridge University Press, Willey, EE, National Instruments and Three UK.
On Monday, June 8, the five-day international event will officially commence with the first of two full days of tutorials and workshops addressing topics like 5G Evolution & Candidate Technologies, Dedicated Short Range Vehicular Communications and Communication Architectures & Networking for Electric Vehicles in the Smart Grid. For instance, the session on Green Cloud Networks will detail measures for reducing cloud network power consumption and carbon footprints, while the tutorial on Energy Harvesting & Energy Cooperation in Wireless Communications will focus on the fundamentals for building next generation green and energy self-sufficient communication systems.
The conference will then proceed over the next three days with a comprehensive agenda exploring the entire communications spectrum ranging from mobile cloud computing and cooperative intelligent transport communications to social and Internet of Things (IoT) networking services and applications. This will be punctuated by the keynote addresses of industry experts like Dr. Paul E. Jacobs, Executive Chairman of Qualcomm Incorporated, who will discuss the “Mobile-Powered Future” and the way mobile device, network and service innovations are impacting consumer electronics, automotive, health care, robotics, and smart cities as well as creating intelligently-connected mobile ecosystems. Other notable authorities delivering keynotes at the event include:
- Professor H. Vincent Poor of Princeton University, who will speak on “Smart Grid: The Role of the Information Sciences” and the methods for improving the efficiency and enabling the effective integration of renewable energy sources and distributed storage into the grid.
- Dr. Wen Tong, CTO, Huawei Wireless, who will focus on “5G to Embrace the Vertical Industries,” the creation of new radio access capabilities needed to meet diverse requirements from different applications and the evolution of network virtualization and slicing technologies.
- Professor Alwyn Seeds of the University College London, who will address “Wireless over Fibre Systems: from MHz to THz” and how WoF system technologies and photonic techniques can enable ultra-high capacity wireless data transmissions.
- Professor Xiaohu You of Southeast University, who will discuss “5G Mobile Communications in China” and the nation’s mobile communications strategies for enabling 5G radio transmissions, networking and open architecture testbeds based on massive cooperative cloud radio capabilities.
- Professor Lajos Hanzo of the University of Southampton, who will speak on “A Stroll with Shannon to Next-Generation Plaza: Large-Scale MIMOs, Single versus Multiple RF Chains and All That…” This will involve the pros and cons of coherent versus non-coherent large-scale MIMO systems and the benefits and disadvantages of their multi-functional antenna array based and spatial modulation aided manifestations.
In addition, Tuesday through Thursday, will also be highlighted by a wide selection of industry panels and business forums detailing the latest advances in communications and policies. As an example, Bryn Jones, Chief Technology Officer at Three UK will chair the session titled “How far can we evolve Mobile Networks – What is next?” During this forum, the CTOs from Three, EE, O2, Qualcomm and Huawei will provide their views on the steps required to overcome data traffic challenges and offer higher capacities and more reliable data services, while ensuring a high Quality of Service.
Other milestones include the conference’s technical program comprised of the presentation of more than 1250 original papers exploring topics within next-generation mobile, wireless, ad hoc, optical, cognitive radio and sensor networks; signal processing and wireless communications; communications theory; communication QoS, reliability & modeling; communication software, services and multimedia applications; communications and information systems security.
The last day of IEEE ICC 2015 on Friday, June 12 will then offer a second full day of tutorials and workshops addressing subjects like Network Coding: From Theory to Practice, Emerging Concepts & Technologies Toward 5G Wireless Networks, Game Theory for Future Wireless Networks, Android Security, Dependable Vehicular Communications (DVC) and Next Generation Green ICT.
