WOCC 2009 Welcome Message

On behalf of the Wireless and Optical Communications Conference (WOCC) Planning Committee, we welcome you to its 18th annual conference, WOCC 2009. Attracting researchers from industries as well as universities, WOCC has become a major event for telecommunications professionals in both the U.S. and the Asia-Pacific region. The conference provides an excellent forum and opportunity for presenting research results, exchanging new ideas, and networking among telecommunications professionals.

The theme of this year’s conference is “Converging Broadband Communications”, highlighting the advances and potentials of high-speed Internet services and applications over both mobile and fixed broadband networks. Technical issues and challenges range from wireless transmissions, distributions through optical channels, multimedia services, to network control and management. The network and services convergence calls for research and development in these interrelated telecommunications engineering subjects. Both academic research and engineering design topics are to be addressed at this year’s conference.

WOCC 2009 features two keynote speeches, “Software Defined and Cognitive RF and Optical Communications” by Dr. J. Mitola of Stevens Institute of Technology and “Wireless Network Architecture: Where We Are, and Where We Should Be” by Dr. S. Corson of Qualcomm Flarion Technologies. Four guest speakers will present at the plenary sessions. Over sixty-five papers, covering topics in wireless communications, optical communications, network systems, and multimedia technologies, will be presented at technical sessions. The conference will offer two tutorials, addressing 4G wireless and wireless security. In addition, sixteen graduate student posters will be presented at the conference. We hope your participation in WOCC 2009 is a productive and rewarding experience and thank you for your participation and contribution in making WOCC 2009 a successful conference.
