IEEE GLOBECOM is one of two flagship conferences of the IEEE Communications Society, together with IEEE ICC. Each year the conference attracts about 3000 submitted scientific papers. A technical program committee of more than 1,500 experts provides more than 10,000 reviews, and from this a small fraction of the submitted papers are accepted for publication and presentation at the conference. The conference meets once a year in North America and attracts roughly 2000 leading scientists and researchers and industry leaders from all around the world. IEEE GLOBECOM is therefore one of the most significant scientific events of the networking and communications community, a must-attend event for scientists and researchers from industry and academia.
Mayor of the City of Austin proclaimed December 8-12, 2014 as IEEE Week
“As a technology hub, Austin is proud to host the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers GLOBECOM conference for the first time,” said Austin Mayor Leffingwell. “Austin offers job opportunities across technological fields and we are also recognized as a leading growth center for the biotech and life sciences industries. It’s easy to see why Austin is a national leader in job growth. In fact, Forbes just named us the second best city in the country for future job growth.”
“The mission of IEEE GLOBECOM closely aligns with Austin’s vision for a strong technology sector. I am glad to declare the week of December 8 – 12 as IEEE Week to recognize the supporters and organizations that worked to bring IEEE GLOBECOM and Austin together,” added Austin Mayor Leffingwell.
