The IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc)—an organization dedicated to advancing communications technologies—will honour the career and service accomplishments of communications and professional experts at IEEE Globecom 2010, being held in Miami, Fla., next week.

Themed “MIAMI: Moving Into the Age of Mobile Interactivity”, the
organization’s flagship event will host more than 2000 presentations
dedicated to the ongoing advancement and deployment of global
communications technologies designed “specifically to increase the
quality of life worldwide and provide a myriad of solutions for everyday
people”. (Since its inception in 1957, Globecom attendees have joined
peers from around the world in expediting the introduction and
implementation of a range of voice, data, image and multimedia
technologies.)

At the Globecom 2010 Award Luncheon, ComSoc will honour:

• Leonard J. Cimini Jr. of the University of Delaware, who will receive
the IEEE ComSoc Donald W. McLellan Meritorious Service Award for
“sustained, high-quality contributions to Communications Society
governance and operations, including conference development,
publications, awards processes and strategic planning”.

• Abbas Jamalipour of the University of Sydney, who will be presented
the ComSoc Harold Sobol Award for Exemplary Service to Meetings &
