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 followed by 5G summits at Toronto, Silicon Valley and Patna. The upcoming IEEE Istanbul 5G Summit is the first one in Turkey, and will be held in conjuction with IEEE BlackSeaCom conference on Monday, June 5, 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 Istanbul 5G Summit is co-sponsored by IEEE Communications Society and IEEE Turkey Section.
