IEEE GLOBECOM 2018 General and Executive Chairs’ Welcome Message

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we are delighted to welcome you to the IEEE Global Telecommunications Conference (GLOBECOM 2018). The conference will be held at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) from 9 to 13 December 2018.

IEEE GLOBECOM is one of the two flagship conferences of the IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc), and is a premium event that brings together the best researchers and professionals from academic, industry and government to exchange novel ideas that will shape future generations of communication technologies.

Abu Dhabi, the capital city of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), is proud to be the first city in the region to host IEEE GLOBECOM under the theme “Gateway to a Connected World” which is a true depiction of its technological and cultural presence in the world. Abu Dhabi is a diverse modern city that attracts visitors from all around the Globe and has become a center for world-class sporting events and premier cultural institutions.

The success of IEEE GLOBECOM 2018 is most certainly due to the diligent efforts of numerous volunteers and IEEE ComSoc staff, in addition to the very generous support from our Patrons. It has been an extraordinary journey, both in terms of the amount of hard work that everyone has put into it and also the outstanding level of collegiality and passion exhibited by all team members. We would like to offer our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who was involved during the last four years of this wonderful journey.

Please do take the time to explore the wonderful Emirate of Abu Dhabi as it has so much to offer in terms of natural beauty, cultural and recreational attractions, and outstanding global cuisine.

With our best wishes for a great week in Abu Dhabi during IEEE GLOBECOM 2018.
