I’m currently at the IEEE Globecom Conference, which takes place in Abu Dhabi. It is possibly the largest scientific gathering in the field of Communications. Artificial intelligence and computer science are beginning to play an increasingly important role in this event and we’re here to learn from the experts in this field, to find out what other research groups are doing and to present our work.


Another reason for which we’re here in Abu Dhabi is to learn first-hand how the event has been organized, since in 2021 we will be its organizers in Spain, where we hope to gather hundreds of thousands of specialists from all corners of the world and hold the best possible Globecom event.

IEEE, through the IEEE Communications Society has supported us once again in the organization of one of its greatest events and we’re immensely thankful for this. Today we have participated in the GIMS/GITC Joint Meeting, at which we were looking into the organizational aspects of the next IEEE ICC and Globecom conferences, as well as the finances of the past events.


 Tomorrow, we will conclude some parts of our proposal and it will be decided where those conferences will take place in the future.
