New York, NY, November 14, 2013 --(PR.com)-- IEEE GLOBECOM 2013, the premier international conference dedicated to global communications, will host its 56th annual event within historic Atlanta, Georgia and only a short distance from numerous national attractions such as The Georgia Aquarium, The William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum, LEGOLAND® Discovery Center, Stone Mountain Park, Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site, Jimmy Carter Presidential Library & Museum and Cyclorama & Civil War Museum.

Held from December 9 – 13, 2013 at the Downtown Atlanta Hilton and Towers in Atlanta, Georgia, the comprehensive schedule for IEEE GLOBECOM 2013 will include more than 1,500 presentations offered under the Power of Global Communications theme. Throughout the five-day international conference, hundreds of leading technical and business communications authorities will provide their insights and share their global expertise in key research areas ranging from next generation broadband, wireless, multimedia, image and voice advancements to e-Health, Internet of Things (IoT), game theory, power-line, satellite, space, green and social networking communications.

After a full day of tutorials and workshops on Monday, December 9, IEEE GLOBECOM 2013 will then officially commence on Tuesday, December 10 with the first of three days filled with emerging technology technical symposia, panel sessions, demonstrations, works-in-progress and industrial fora. Already included within this comprehensive agenda are the keynotes of:

· Jessica Rosenworcel, Commissioner, Federal Communications Commission (FCC), who will speak on “Wireless Communications: A Regulatory Perspective” and how the government can encourage innovation and network topology breakthroughs
