IEEE Global Communications Conference
9-13 December 2018 // Abu Dhabi, UAE
Gateway to a Connected World

Call for Executive Forums

IEEE GLOBECOM is one of the two flagship annual conferences of the IEEE Communications Society, the leading global professional society of communications industry professionals and academics with over 210 chapters worldwide.  IEEE GLOBECOM 2018, like its predecessors, will showcase the latest in communications research and development, through its technical symposia, industry program, tutorials and workshops.  Prominent keynote speakers will anchor each day’s program, and industry exhibits will be mounted in high-traffic locations.  There will be high-level executives and leaders addressing hot topics, such as new horizons in the industry, trends in government regulations and status in international standardization, as well as researchers explaining their latest discoveries.

The conference provides an attractive Industry Program, which features Keynote Talks, Executive Forum, Panels, Seminars, Demos and Exhibits, and Podium Presentations. 

The Executive Forum will follow the same format as Industry Panels, but only a single one will be held in the conference, in one time-slot, aiming at bringing together C-level Executives from various industries, encompassing several sectors, to discuss a timely and relevant topic of interest to conference participants.

Interested Executive Forum organizers should submit their proposals, according to the Guidelines (available here), using the corresponding Template (available here), to the Industry Forum and Exhibition and the Industry Program Chairs, to the email industry-executive-forum@comsoc.org, as a PDF file attachment, named “ExecForum-Proposal_proposer(s)name(s)”, by the 27 July 2018 deadline.
