IEEE International Conference on Communications
9–13 June 2024 // Denver, CO, USA
Scaling the Peaks of Global Communications

IEEE Communications Magazine

IEEE Communications Magazine provides timely information on all aspects of (electrical/electronic) communications. The magazine covers services (telecommunications, multimedia, Internet and digital), network (including its softwarization, as well as underlying infrastructure) and device technology, support systems, transversal topics like artificial intelligence applied to telecommunications, market trends, strategy and regulatory issues. Articles are tutorial in nature and written in a style comprehensible to readers outside the specialty of the article. 

We are pleased to announce a special track at the 2024 IEEE ICC conference featuring selected recent papers from IEEE Communications Magazine presented by their authors.  This track will allow attendees to learn about new and emerging broad topics and give an opportunity to interact with the researchers who are making contributions to these areas.  The 33 papers of the track are organized into 6 lecture sessions and an interactive session as follows:
