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). IEEE COMSOC Northern Virginia and Washington DC chapters are jointly organizing the 1st IEEE 5G Summit Reston on August 19, 2017. It will take place at 12524 Sunrise Valley Drive, Reston, Virginia. 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 Reston 5G Summit is co-sponsored by IEEE Communications Society, Northern Virginia and Washington DC IEEE Communications Society chapters, Northern Virginia and Washington DC IEEE sections.
