The 22nd International Symposium on Wireless Personal Multimedia Communications (WPMC 2019) will be held in Lisbon, Portugal, on November 24-27, 2019.
The theme of this year’s WPMC is “DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES AND BUSINESS TRANSFORMATION”, hosted by Instituto de Telecomunicas (IT)/Instituto Universitario de Lisboa (ISCTE-IUL), Portugal.

The WPMC symposia series were inaugurated in 1998, as a global platform to enable 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.

This time the 22nd WPMC has merged with Global Wireless Summit (GWS), the world’s largest annual international conference on wireless techno-business modelling, to respond to the trend of rapid digital transformation, its acceleration of business activities, processes, competencies, and models.  Its related topics will be in a common platform for academia, industries and standardization bodies to present and discuss the various opportunities and open challenges to fully leverage the changes and promises of digital technologies and their impact in a strategic and prioritized way.

A key emphasis of this year’s conferences is the borderless smart society – bridging across industries, public and private companies, universities, research labs, and other knowledge societies in exploration of the newest digital technologies and pursuing innovative ways of living, conducting business, travelling, and so forth, towards sustainable solutions for the future.

IT / ISCTE-IUL is actively involved in fundamental and applied research in telecommunications and its supporting sciences, including wireless communications, optical communications, networks and multimedia, at national/international levels. IT also fosters higher education and training, by hosting and tutoring graduate/postgraduate students.

We look forward to receiving your original, previously unpublished contributions and welcoming you to Lisbon and WPMC 2019.
