GENERAL PROGRAM INFORMATION:

IEEE Globecom 2014 features a greatly expanded INDUSTRY PROGRAM organized by and for industry practioners in the communications and networking industries and its broader supporting ecosystem.  The expanded industry program is designed to provide opportunities for the practicing industry professional to both share and learn about the latest ideas, trends, and product innovations in the broader communications and networking industries, while connecting with their peers and other prominent leaders in the industry. 

The INDUSTRY PROGRAM is organized into 5 parallel program tracks: 
  1. Access Technologies  
  2. Networking and Information 
  3. Emerging Applications
  4. Enabling Technologies
  5. Business and Government
Each of these tracks are covered by program components that feature prominent industry leaders including CEOs, CTOs, VPs, and Senior Managers and Engineers from leading communications and networking companies.  

These INDUSTRY PROGRAM components include:
  • 6 Keynotes from C-suite executives and VPs of AT&T, National Instruments, Cisco, Huawei, and Qualcomm
  • Dialogue with Industry Leaders which features a lively Q&A session with high-level industry executives on their perspective of where the industry is going in the next 10 years
  • Executive Forums where industry executives present their views on the key trends affecting the industry, including 5G wireless access, the future evolution of networks, and the emerging internet-of-things 
  • 4 Industry Workshops that feature half- and full-day organized presentations, panels, and demonstrations on key topics including 5G and the internet-of-things
  • 10 Industry Tutorials taught by industry experts on the various tools and technologies relevant to the practicing engineer in industry
  • 30 Panel Sessions where industry leaders engage in panel discussions on prominent topics across the 5 program tracks
  • 23 Interactive Posters organized into 3 separate sessions presented for engineers by engineers 
  • 29 Live Demonstrations of working hardware and/or software systems that show the latest innovations across the various program tracks 
In addition to these program components, there are also general program aspects that round-out the overall industry conference experience:
  • Exhibits – Exhibit booths and demonstrations from our major patrons and exhibitors will be on display in the Exhibits Hall and the foyers beginning at the Welcome Reception and continuing thru, Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday. 
  • Welcome Reception – A Monday evening reception, 7pm to 10pm, will be held for all conference registrations.  During this event, the Exhibits and Demonstrations will be on display.
  • Awards Luncheon – Included under the Full Conference Registration Category, optional under all other registration categories, including the Full 3-Day Industry Registration.
  • Conference Banquet - Included under the Full Conference Registration Category, optional under all other registration categories, including the Full 3-Day Industry Registration.
