Recently, IEEE Communications Society has developed a strategic framework based on the principles that embrace Industry's interests and priorities while integrating IEEE and ComSoc's objectives. In order to engage industry members with high value and innovative technologies, IEEE Communications Society plans to hold a series of high impact one day Summits in emerging technology areas (e.g., SDN/NFV, 5G, IoT, Big Data, and Cybersecurity).
The standardization organizations with inputs from companies and the research community worldwide are now driving the evolution of wireless communication networks towards the Fifth Generation (5G), with Europe already playing a central role through 5GPPP. This evolution will benefit operators, service providers, manufacturers and application developers, as well as companies of mostly any other sector, since wireless technology will improve their processes and positively impact the world economy, and finally the citizens that will enjoy communications with improved quality and new services.
The IEEE 5G Greece Summit 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.
The event will be held on July 11, 2017, in Thessaloniki, Greece, , co-located with Emerging Technologies for 5G and Internet of Things
, to be held during July 1-10, 2017.
The programme is composed of a rich blend of speakers from industry, academia, research labs, standardization and regulation bodies, covering different main topics:
Radio Communication Aspects
The Network and Verticals Perspective
European Research Projects on 5G
The IEEE Greece 5G Summit is co-organized by the Hellenic Open University, the Computing Systems, Security and Networks Research Lab (Alexander TEI of Thessaloniki) and the Hellenic Ministry of Digital Policy Telecommunications and Media. The IEEE Greece 5G Summit is co-sponsored by IEEE Communications Society and the IEEE 5G Initiative.
