IEEE GLOBECOM is one of two flagship conferences of the IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc), together with IEEE ICC. Each year the conference attracts about 3000 submitted scientific papers and dozens of proposals for industry events. A technical program committee of more than 1,500 experts provides more than 10,000 reviews, and from this a small fraction of the submitted papers are accepted for publication and presentation at the conference. The conference meets once a year in North America and attracts roughly 2000 leading scientists, researchers and industry practitioners from all around the world. IEEE GLOBECOM is therefore one of the most significant scientific events of the networking and communications community, a must-attend event for scientists, researchers and networking practitioners from industry and academia.
IEEE GLOBECOM is a five-day event. Two days are dedicated to tutorials and workshops, while the remaining three days are dedicated to the IF&E program and the technical symposia. The program of the technical symposia includes oral or poster presentations of about 1000 scientific papers, grouped into 12 thematic symposia, and more than 15 parallel sessions. In addition to the technical program, IEEE GLOBECOM 2016 will feature an industry forum and exhibition (IF&E) program, including industry-focused workshops, tutorials, keynote talks from industrial leaders, panel discussions, a large exposition, and business and industrial forums.
