IEEE GLOBECOM 2013 to Feature Industry Forum & Exhibition (IF&E) Dedicated to Latest NFV & Communications Technology Advancements

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
· Lew Tucker, Vice President and Chief Technology Officer of Cloud Computing at Cisco, who will discuss “Cloud Computing and the Promise of Networking-as a-Service,” the emergence of cloud computing platforms, and the development of network-centric platforms enhancing the delivery of elastic, software-based network services
· Branko Bjelajac, who will speak on “Information and Communication Technology – A Key Enabler of Smart Grid Innovation” and its role in transforming and modernizing the sustainability, production, distribution and consumption of electricity on a global scale

Another significant event scheduled for the conference’s opening day will be the “Dialogue with Industry Leaders” to be held Tuesday evening and moderated by Technology Association of Georgia President, Tino Mantella. Featuring the CTOs of several corporations headquartered in Atlanta like AT&T, Coca-Cola and Home Depot, this panel will feature the perspectives of these senior executives on current and future communications technology needs as well as a special Q&A with area High School students.

Other milestones will include the Industry Forum & Exhibition (IF&E) Program, which was specifically-designed to explore the latest scientific research in the field of communications and the related business, personal and societal implications. In addition to nearly 30 different sessions, the IF&E program will showcase three days of Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) research demonstrations highlighting the latest novel approaches for overcoming the inflexibility, high power consumption, operational complexity and hardware obsolescence issues found in today’s network infrastructures.

Held in conjunction with the NFV demonstration program will also be three full days of IF&E sessions dedicated to topics such as:

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
