Organised through a Technical Co-sponsorship with the IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc), the programme focuses on the hot topics and future trends shaping tomorrows information and communication (ICT) industry, featuring unique, fresh insights direct from R&D organisations.
Designed for engineers and technical specialists, the event prides itself on being free of marketing hype. Discussions will focus around 12 themes: Security Issues in Future Networks; Green Solutions for Sustainable Growth; Innovations in Broadband; Improving Healthcare through eHealth Services; New Concepts for Future Networks; Efficiency Challenges of eGovernment; LTE Deployment Challenges; Broadband Networks for Rural Service Delivery; Small Cells in Future Wireless Networks; Standardisation in Practice; Cognitive Management of Spectrum; and Dependability of Emerging Economies on ICTs.
To ensure a high-calibre, wholly original programme, presentations will be selected via peer review by a panel of experts drawn from technical committees and study groups from influential organisations such as IEEE and ITU-T (ITUs Telecommunication Standardisation Sector). The Technical Symposium at ITU Telecom World 2011 builds on a long-standing tradition of cutting-edge debate and knowledge sharing, said Dr Hamadoun Tour, ITU Secretary-General. With the invaluable support of IEEE ComSoc, the Symposium harnesses the shared knowledge of a community of experts, drawn from across the industry, and I look forward to hearing the innovative thinking which will come out of it.
