IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC) is one of the IEEE Communications Society’s two flagship conferences dedicated to driving innovation in nearly every aspect of communications. Each year, more than 2,900 scientific researchers and their management submit proposals for program sessions to be held at the annual conference. After extensive peer review, the best of the proposals are selected for the conference program, which includes technical papers, tutorials, workshops and industry sessions designed specifically to advance technologies, systems and infrastructure that are continuing to reshape the world and provide all users with access to an unprecedented spectrum of high-speed, seamless and cost-effective global telecommunications services.
Thousands of participants gather to present research results, share visions and ideas, obtain updates on latest technologies and expand professional and social networking. These activities are realized through IEEE ICC’s multiple diversified and exciting programs.
This 5-day event includes several keynote speeches by distinguished speakers from industry, academia and government sectors; panels and forums; technical sessions featuring technical papers extensively reviewed by peers; workshops focusing on the latest trends in various technology; tutorials delivered by experts in respective disciplines; exhibits; an awards luncheon; and a relaxing and entertaining banquet.
IEEE ICC 2018 will be held in Kansas City, MO. Known as the "Heart of America", the city is near both the population center of the United States and the geographic center of the 48 contiguous states. Its central location has led to Kansas City’s growing tech density and its burgeoning startup activity. The city has become a worldwide technology destination.
