- IEEE ICC 2009
This year's International Conference on Communications (IEEE ICC) 2009, one of the flagship conferences in the field of Information and Communications Technology, is coming to the capital of Saxony. Between June 14th and 18th, 2009 experts from academia and industry are meeting at the International Congress Center in Dresden to discuss current innovations and future trends in communications. 1,500 top executives and scientists are expected to attend. Of the more than 3.500 papers submitted to the scientific committee, about 1,000 will be presented.
Hamid Akhavan, CEO of T-Mobile International AG and chair of the conference's organizing committee, and Thomas Jurk, Saxony State Minister for Economic Affairs and Labor will open the ICC. Other key speakers include Botaro Hirosaki, Senior Executive Vice President of NEC Corporation, and Viviane Reding, Commissioner for Information Society and Media at the European Commission.
Important topic: Power efficiency
At the large number of workshops, breakout sessions and forums participants will have the opportunity to discuss current industry topics of particular concern to them. For the first time the conference will also include a workshop on Green Communications, as well as a high-profile plenary session on the same topic. This illustrates the industry's increasing awareness of new energy-saving technologies, as energy costs have become an important factor for communications network operators. Therefore, research is necessary to find ways to reduce energy consumption. Starting with smart power solutions for devices in standby mode, the goal must be a complete reduction of energy consumption when electronics are idle.
