Premier international communications conference to host more than 1,500 business & technology presentations from June 10 – 14 in Sydney, Australia.
New York-- The IEEE International Conference on Communications will highlight its next annual event to be held from June 10 – 14 in the dynamic cultural hub of Sydney, Australia, with the presentation of hundreds of leading communications experts addressing the latest worldwide advancements in voice, data, image, and multimedia technologies.
Themed “Communications: The Centrepoint of the Digital Economy,” this year’s agenda will be earmarked by the keynotes of numerous industry authorities such as:
- Rod Tucker, Emeritus Laureate Professor at the University of Melbourne, who will discuss “Infrastructure for the Digital Economy - Australia’s National Broadband Network: politics confronts technology”
- Professor Theodore (Ted) S. Rappaport of New York University, who will speak on “Defining the Wireless Future - Millimeter Wave Wireless Communications: The Renaissance of Computing and Communications”
- Dr. Chih-Lin I, Chief Scientist of Wireless Technologies at China Mobile, who will explore “Defining the Wireless Future - Vision 2020: Perspectives of Mobile Operators (5G: Data Rate and More)
In addition, they will be joined by Prof. Bijan Jabbari of George Mason University, who will address the “Wireless Evolution: From Connecting People to Connecting Machines,” and Prof. Rahim Tafazolli, Director of the Centre for Communications Systems Research and 5G Innovation Centre at The University of Surrey in the United Kingdom, who will address “5G New Infrastructure for Digital Economy and Connected Society.”
During his remarks on Wednesday morning, Dr. Jabbari will discuss the many advances in multimedia content delivery services, as well as the wireless technologies ranging from smart devices to the cloud, that have become staples of our daily lives. This includes the challenges posed by the next wave of innovative machine-to-machine applications and the resulting data traffic. Also reviewed will be recent innovations in wireless technology and the main requirements that must be achieved to create a functional wireless ecosystem for our connected society and machines.
As part of his keynote, Dr. Tafazolli will speak about the need for a new approach to 5G, which is fundamentally different from previous generations of mobile cellular systems. Recommendations will be made about the strategic importance of next wave research innovations as well as the requirements and targets that must be set by standardization bodies and taken into consideration by national and international regulators.
