IEEE Communication Society has developed a strategic framework based on the principles that embrace Industry’s interests and objectives while integrating objectives and priorities of IEEE and Communication Society. In order to engage industry members with high value and innovative technology, IEEE Communication Society plans to hold a series of high impact one day Summits in emerging technology areas (e.g., SDN/NFV, 5G, IoT, and Cybersecurity). The IEEE 5G and IoT Thessaloniki Summit 2018 is part of a successful series of 5G Summits that have been held since 2015 in America, Asia and Europe, and will contribute to continuous provision of a platform for the industry leaders, innovators, and researchers from the industry and academic community to collaborate and exchange ideas in this emerging technology that may help in driving the standards and rapid deployment.
