Several days ago, I have received an award from the Madrid Convention Bureau, on the behalf of Madrid City Council. At the annual awards ceremony, recognition is given to professionals who have stood out for their commitment to making Madrid the venue of a congress in their field of expertise.
Eight academic and research professionals involved in seven of the national and international congresses in sectors such as economics, medicine, or law, which have been held in Madrid during 2021, were recognized for their altruistic work as promoters of the city in the eyes of international associations.
This year we had decided to host GLOBECOM 2021 in the capital; the most important conference of the IEEE Communications Society, which brings together world-renowned scientists and industry professionals from different fields every year to drive innovation in almost all aspects of communications.
I am very grateful for this recognition and we will continue to work towards furthering research in all areas.
