About GWS

The 21st International Symposium on Wireless Personal Multimedia Communications (WPMC- 2018) and 6th Global Wireless Summit (GWS -2018) will be jointly held in Chiang Rai, Thailand from the 25th to the 28th of November 2018, as part of the celebrations of MFU’s 20th anniversary.

The theme of this year’s conference is Body and Mind Integration through Information and Communication Technology. 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 21st WPMC will bring together academia, industries and standardization bodies to explore activities, trends and future challenges towards ICT globalization for health and wellness issues in existing and future wireless technologies. The GWS is the continuous event of one of the world's largest annual international conferences on wireless technology covering its latest advances. Apart from abovementioned area, GWS also focuses on technologies such as, cellular, short-range, sensors, radio access, vehicular communication and embedded ones. The conferences also focus on issues in cognitive and self-organizing networks, Internet of Things, Nano-sensors, positioning and localization, networks without borders, recent advances in information theory and its applications, multimedia applications and services; and so on. A key emphasis of this year's conferences is borderless smart society - bridging across industries, public and private companies, universities, research labs, and other knowledge societies in exploration of the newest wireless technologies pursuing new ways of living as well as innovative and sustainable solutions for the future.

We look forward to receive your contributions and to see you at the joint conference of GWS-2018 and WPMC-2018
