Shenzhen, China

Call for Papers

The 19th International Symposium on Wireless Personal Multimedia Communications (WPMC 2016) will be held at Shenzhen, China from the 13th to the 16th of November, 2016. The theme of this year’s conference is Interconnecting Wireless Personal Multimedia Communications. In addition to high-quality technical sessions, the symposium will feature exciting keynotes, tutorials and workshops. It will also offer a fantastic social program.

WPMC 2016 is technically sponsored by IEEE ComSoc. All accepted and presented papers in technical sessions and workshops will be published in the conference proceedings, in IEEE Xplore as well as EI and other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases. Moreover, selected best papers with extended analysis and results will be recommended to the special issues of well-regarded SCI journals.

The WPMC symposia series were inaugurated in 1998, as a global platform which aims at enabling collaboration in the field of wireless information. Held in Asia, Europe and America, WPMC has established itself as a unique global conference dedicated to wireless multimedia convergence. Continuing the series, the 19th International Symposium on Wireless Personal Multimedia Communications will be held for the first time in China.
