The 24th International Conference on Telecommunications

The 24th International Conference on Telecommunications (ICT 2017, http://ict-2017.org/ ) invites world-class researchers to share their ideas and progress in addressing challenges faced in this increasingly intelligent realm of information and telecommunication technologies as part of a rich conference program including Plenary Talks, Tutorials, Workshops as well as Regular and Special Sessions. Please see attached for the Call for Papers.

The conference is hosted in the Mediterranean coastal city of Limassol in Cyprus, a top holiday destination. This year’s theme focuses on intelligence built into devices, systems, and processes. The ample computation, communication and sensing/actuation capabilities offered by increasingly miniaturized and low-cost electronic devices are enabling a myriad of new applications with transformative implications to numerous economic sectors. We have reached a point where intelligence built into these devices enables, for example, the realization of affordable and useful smart homes and smart grids, autonomous vehicles, and unmanned aerial systems; all of which have tremendous impact on their own but more importantly in conjunction with each other.

Electronic Membership Options Offer Reduced Dues

Depending on the country in which you live, you may be eligible to select an electronic membership option which significantly lowers the cost of IEEE membership dues. Electronic membership means that you will not receive a paper membership card, or paper copies of publications. You will have access to a PDF file in your IEEE Account that contains your membership card and membership materials. All publications will be delivered to you electronically, and can be accessed with your IEEE Account through IEEE Xplore.

All IEEE membership benefits otherwise remain the same. Your years of service, member grade, and grade elevation eligibility are not affected. Electronic membership offers you reduced membership dues depending on the country in which you live. There are 150 countries in Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia that qualify. In most of these countries, electronic membership costs US$81-US$90. In 31 countries with extremely low incomes, IEEE membership dues are US$27. Professional members residing in eligible countries will see the electronic membership option automatically when they join or renew their IEEE membership.

See if you qualify for electronic membership.
