Special Session on: Participating in New Technology Opportunities
Day: Tuesday, May 30
Time: 13:00 - 15:00
Location: S8, Level 1 (Cloud Convention Centre)
Co-Chairs: Dr. Zhisheng Niu (Chair of ComSoc’s Emerging Technology Committee)
Dr. Heiner Stüttgen (Chair of ComSoc’s Technology Evolution and Initiatives Committee)
The technical field of interest of the IEEE Communications Society evolves over time. While many new trends are well captured by our Technical Committees, others fall into the gaps between different Technical Committees. Therefore, ComSoc has 2 major mechanisms in place to address new trends and technologies. First the Emerging Technology Committee (ETC) incubates new technology activities within ComSoc. Second ComSoc works with other IEEE Societies to address new trends and technologies collaboratively in Initiatives, Technical Communities and Councils. These activities are overseen by the Technology Evolution and Initiatives Committee (TE&I).
The special session will provide an overview on these activities and provide the audience with information how to start new activities and how to best contribute to these activities, including contact points to the various activities.
