Technical Symposium at ITU Telecom World 2011 to deliver unique insights into future technology trends
Symposium will explore technological advances in the area of communications technologies and enablers
Geneva, 18 July, 2011 – From e-health and e-government to sustainable solutions, next-generation wireless standardization and deployment and more, the ITU Telecom World 2011 Technical Symposium will take an in-depth look at the cutting-edge technological developments which are defining and influencing the future of networks and services.
Organized through a Technical Co-sponsorship with the IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc), the programme focuses on the hot topics and future trends shaping tomorrow’s information and communication (ICT) industry, featuring unique, fresh insights direct from R&D organizations. Designed for engineers and technical specialists, the event prides itself on being free of marketing hype.
Discussions will focus around 12 themes: Security Issues in Future Networks; Green Solutions for Sustainable Growth; Innovations in Broadband; Improving Healthcare through eHealth Services; New Concepts for Future Networks; Efficiency Challenges of eGovernment; LTE Deployment Challenges; Broadband Networks for Rural Service Delivery; Small Cells in Future Wireless Networks; Standardization in Practice; Cognitive Management of Spectrum; and Dependability of Emerging Economies on ICTs.
To ensure a high-calibre, wholly original programme, presentations will be selected via peer review by a panel of experts drawn from technical committees and study groups from influential organizations such as IEEE and ITU-T (ITU’s Telecommunication Standardization Sector).
“The Technical Symposium at ITU Telecom World 2011 builds on a long-standing tradition of cutting-edge debate and knowledge sharing,” said Dr Hamadoun Touré, ITU Secretary-General. “With the invaluable support of IEEE ComSoc, the Symposium harnesses the shared knowledge of a community of experts, drawn from across the industry, and I look forward to hearing the innovative thinking which will come out of it.”
