IEEE ComSoc Conference in Honolulu
New York, NY — The flagship event of the IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) will be held November 30 - December 4, 2009 at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Hotel in Honolulu, Hawaii. Themed, "Riding the Wave to Global Connectivity," IEEE GLOBECOM 2009 is expected to host more than 300 industry-relevant workshops, symposia, technical sessions, tutorials, demonstrations and keynotes dedicated to the next wave of voice, data, image and multimedia communications that are likely to "solve the challenges of time and space."

"As the central meeting place of the Pacific, if not the world, we expect Hawaii to provide the ideal venue for exploring the hottest areas of communications and information networking technology — as well as networking with colleagues and leaders from around the world," said Dr. Douglas Zuckerman, IEEE ComSoc President and the General Chair of IEEE GLOBECOM 2009.

The event will feature 11 timely technical symposia in hot areas covering Ad-Hoc, Sensor and Mesh Networking; Communication & Information System Security; Communication Theory; Communication QoS, Reliability and Modeling; Communication Software & Services; Next-Generation Networking & Internet; Optical Networks & Systems; Signal Processing for Communications; Wireless Communications; Wireless Networking; and Selected Areas in Communications. To round out the overall experience, the conference will also present: tutorials highlighting new and emerging topics essential to today's engineering and technology environment; workshops focused on the latest breakthroughs in information and communications technology; keynote and CEO forums highlighting the visions and experiences of top industry leaders; business, industry and technology forums with keynotes and panel sessions on Design & Development, Enterprise Networking, Access and IPv6; special sessions dedicated to communications history, including a keynote and recognition of the IEEE's 125th Anniversary.

The event is being hosted by IEEE ComSoc, the worldwide professional organization dedicated to the advancement of communications technologies. Last year's event brought together nearly 2,000 designers, developers, academics, researchers and business professionals to openly discuss and review the ongoing convergence of technologies that are expected to one day "solve the challenge of time and space," while merging consumer and business communications into one seamless multimedia, interactive experience that integrates nearly every phase of life.
