February 6, 2012 – IEEE Globecom 2012, an international conference dedicated to the advancement of global communications, is now accepting original papers and speaking proposals for consideration by March 15. The 55th annual event will be held from December 3 – 7 at the Disneyland Hotel located moments from the Disneyland theme and Adventure Parks in Anaheim, Calif.

Sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc), IEEE Globecom aims to drive innovations and technological break-throughs in various telecommunications field including broadband, wireless, multimedia, data, image and voice communications. Several weeks ago, ComSoc announced that last year’s Globecom conference in Houston, Texas, was among the most successful in its history, drawing out nearly 1100 original paper presentations from 73 separate countries. (CLICK HERE to read our coverage of that announcement.)

“Each year’s mission is to provide attendees with the highest-quality technical program and practical experience coupled with enjoyable and memorable experiences,” said executive chair Pierre Perra. “Disneyland is the ideal spot for accomplishing both goals. In addition to exploring the next generation of cutting-edge communications technologies, attendees can also have a truly wondrous time visiting the Disneyland theme parks and enjoying all the magical activities that inspire millions of people daily.”

Expected to include nearly 1500 individual presentations throughout the five-day event, event organizers are currently accepting original research submissions for use within 12 separate Symposia and dozens of workshops and tutorials covering the areas of:

• Ad Hoc and Sensor Networking

• Next Generation Networking & Internet
• Optical Networks and Systems
• Signal Processing for Communications
• Wireless Communications and Networking
• Selected Areas of Communication such as access systems & networks, power line & smart grid communications, green networks, tactical communications & situation management, and satellite & space communications

This year’s event will feature “Works in Progress” within industry-centric forums, workshops and tutorials, regulatory impact assessments, business models, applications and design & development strategies, implementations and challenges in today’s networking and communications environments. Among these topics are spectrum allocation & utilization; innovation and business resource; global standards deployment; healthcare biomedical electronics; cloud computing & networking; social networking & games; communications & humanity; and global information grid systems.
