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 first summit was held at Princeton University in May 2015 (see photos, slides, and videos) followed by 5G summits at Toronto and Silicon Valley in 2015. The upcoming IEEE Kolkata 5G Summit is thirteenth one in the series, and will be held in Kolkata on Friday, March 17, 2017. This one day summit will provide 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 Kolkata 5G Summit is co-sponsored by IEEE Communications Society, IEEE 5G Initiative, CTIF ,and IEEE Kolkata Section.
