September 6, 2011 – The IEEE Wireless Communications and Networking Conference (WCNC), an event dedicated to terrestrial communications advances, has announced September 12 as its Call for Papers deadline for the upcoming international conference to be held April 1 – 4, 2012 in Paris, France.

Hosted by the IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc), IEEE WCNC 2012 is “devoted to providing global industry professionals, academics and government agencies with the ideal forum for exploring the latest advances in digital cellular, PCS, vehicle-to-vehicle, multimedia and wireless networking technologies,” described organizers.

“The legendary scenic and artistic beauty of Paris will offer a spectacular backdrop for IEEE WCNC 2012,” said professor Hikmet Sari, general chair of the conference. “It will also supply a magnificent atmosphere for profiling the latest visionary research, services and applications that are actively reshaping our businesses, entertainment and social practices worldwide.”

In addition to the presentation of technical papers, tutorials, workshops and business panels, IEEE WCNC 2012 will feature keynote speeches by several international telecommunications experts, such as: Gee Rittenhouse, vice president of Bell Labs Research; Siavash Alamouti, group R&D director of Vodafone; Thomas Sälzer, director R&D of Huawei Technologies France; and Andrea Goldsmith, professor of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University.
