A Strong Technical Program Will Draw the Industry’s Biggest, Brightest Players

IEEE’s new EXPO is led by Intel executives Tony Neal-Graves (Chair) and P.K. Gupta (Vice Chair).

IEEE GLOBECOM’S EXPO technical committee, headed by Dr. Norival Figueira of Hammerhead Systems and Dr. Dilip Krishnaswamy of INTEL, is designing content for the Design & Developers Forum, and other tutorials and workshops that will be presented by the field’s most renowned innovators. Quality content at IEEE GLOBECOM means quality buyers on the co-located exhibit floor of IEEE Communications EXPO.

Co-Located with the new EXPO and technical program will be the annual IEEE GLOBECOM 2006 technical program which will feature 16 symposia focused on recent research and development activities.
