IEEE ICC 2014 to Explore Entire Range of Global Digital Communications Advancements

New York, NY, May 29, 2014 --(PR.com)-- The IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC 2014) will dedicate more than 1,500 presentations to the next generation of wireless and wireline advancements worldwide during its next annual event to be held June 10 – 14 at the Hilton Sydney Hotel in Australia. This includes more than 2,000 global industry leaders discussing the latest research, services and applications surrounding the entire spectrum of digital communications ranging from mobile cloud computing, green ICT and cooperative intelligent transport networks to 5G cellular networks, social networking and IoT communications.

“For five full days, experts representing nearly every industrial nation will convene to showcase their newest research, services and applications in an environment dedicated to learning and expanding global communications knowledge,” says General Chair Farzad Safaei, Professor and Director, ICT Research Institute, University of Wollongong, Australia. “This will be performed in one of the world’s loveliest cities and within miles of iconic treasures and cultural attractions like the Darling Harbour, Royal National Park, the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, Queen Victoria Building and Bondi Beach.”

Themed “Communications: The Centrepoint of the Digital Economy,” IEEE ICC 2014 will commence Tuesday, June 10 with 16 separate tutorials and workshops covering areas such as “Wireless Physical Layer Security,” “Communications in Underground and Confined Environments,” “Secure Networking and Forensic Computing (SNFC),” “M2M Communications and Next Generation Global IoT,” “Erasure Coding for Cloud Communication and Storage” and “Participatory Wireless Networking.”

On the following morning, the conference’s opening ceremonies will begin with the remarks of Hon. Malcolm Turnbull MP, Minister for Communications for Australia and then proceed with the event’s first keynote presented by Professor Bijan Jabbari of George Mason University, who will discuss “Wireless Evolution: From Connecting People to Connecting Machines.” This includes exploring the latest instant delivery advances by multimedia content providers as well as a detailed review of the challenges posed by innovative machine-to-machine applications and the requirements needed to create a functional wireless global ecosystem.

Also joining Dr. Jabbari on this year’s keynote agenda will be Prof. Rahim Tafazolli, Director of the Centre for Communications Systems Research (CCSR) and 5G Innovation Centre (5GIC) at The University of Surrey in the United Kingdom, who will speak on “5G New Infrastructure for Digital Economy and Connected Society” and the targets that must be set by today’s standardization bodies and regulators. Other leading communications authorities speaking at IEEE ICC 2014 include:

--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” and the government’s latest plan to use lower-cost and lower-bandwidth copper-based connections to connect the vast majority of the country’s homes and businesses
--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” and the completely new applications and solutions that will create a new era of wireless 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)" and the solutions for integrating wireless technologies with mobile infrastructures, enhancing network capacities while keeping the TCO at a reasonable level and overcoming a next generation wireless system faced with a 1000x traffic load increase.

In addition, Wednesday through Friday, will be highlighted by a comprehensive agenda of industrial and business forums detailing the latest advances in communications technologies and policies. Among these will be six separate panel discussions covering the latest research from leading organizations such as NTT Network Innovation Laboratories, Samsung Electronics, NTT DoCoMo InterDigital and Ericsson on the topics of “Advanced Technologies for Disaster-Resilient Networks,” “Immersive and 3D Multimedia,” “5G – Global Initiatives and Spectrum,” “Green ICT,” “Intelligent Transport Systems” and “Wireless Backhauls for Future Broadband Networks."

Another conference highlight will be the conference’s technical program comprised of the presentation of more than 900 original papers exploring topics within next-generation, mobile and wireless, ad hoc and sensor networking; signal processing and wireless communications: communications theory; optical networks and systems; communication QoS, reliability & modeling; communication software, services and multimedia applications; communications and information systems security; and cognitive radio and networks. Additional sessions will also be held within the Selected Areas in Communications Symposium to cover key subjects in e-health, data storage, IoT, smart grid, satellites & space, green and quantum networking communications.

The last day of IEEE ICC 2014 on Saturday, June 14 will then offer a second full day of tutorials and workshops addressing subjects like “Data Centre Networking,” “Optimal Resource Management for Future Cellular and Heterogeneous Networks,” “OpenFlow, Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV),” “5G Technologies (including ultra-low latency) (5gWS),” “Advances in Public Safety and Emergency Communications (APSEC),” “QoE-centric Network and Application Management (QoENAM)” and “Energy Efficiency in Wireless Networks & Wireless Networks for Energy Efficiency (E2Nets).”
