New York, NY, March 22, 2013 --(PR.com)-- The IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC 2013), the leading international venue dedicated to the advancement of wireless and wireline communications worldwide, will hold its next annual event in the Central European cultural and industrial center of Budapest Hungary from June 9 – 13, 2013. Against the magnificent backdrop of the Blue Danube and within the city nicknamed "Paris of the East," 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 range of global voice, data, image and multimedia technologies.

“Hungary is an excellent choice for IEEE ICC 2013 given the country’s substantial traditions in electrical engineering and telecommunications,” says General Chair Christopher Mattheisen, Chairman-CEO of Magyar Telekom, Hungary. “After two decades of dedicated development, ICT is now a major economic force in Hungary with about 100,000 people employed in the ICT production industry and an equal amount working in support of its growth in the public and government sectors. As the flagship conference of the IEEE Communications Society, we are honored to host this premier, international conference and its efforts to further revolutionize the ways we live, work and interact with other citizens, societies, companies and worldwide institutions.”

“We are proud to play such a prominent role in the next stage of the communications evolution process,” adds Executive Chair Lajos Hanzó of the University of Southampton in the United Kingdom. “This year’s program offers an incredibly versatile blend of hot topic discussions on cutting-edge technologies and a broad sampling of Hungary’s exquisite cuisine, cultural landmarks and architectural treasures. We’ve dedicated our resources to ensuring every attendee has a deeply rewarding educational experience in a city known throughout the world for the finest amenities and attractions.”

Themed “Bridging the Broadband Divide,” IEEE ICC 2013 will commence on Sunday, June 9 with nearly 20 workshops and tutorials dedicated to subjects like “Optical-wireless Integrated Technology for Systems and Networks,” “Cooperative and Cognitive Networks (CoCoNet5),” “Beyond LTE-A,” “Telecommunications Standards: From Research to Standards,” “Network Coding from Theory to Practice,” “Self-organizing Networks (SON): From Conception to Realisation” and “Power Line Communications: Modeling Algorithms and Applications.”
