Dear colleagues,
On behalf of the Wireless and Optical Communications Conference (WOCC) 2015 Organizing Committee, I welcome you to the 24th WOCC in Taipei, Taiwan, on October 23 and 24, 2015.

In the past two decades, WOCC has become one of the major events for telecommunications professionals both in the U.S. and the Asia-Pacific region to present new research results, discuss emerging technologies, innovative research ideas, and network among telecommunications experts.

The theme of WOCC 2015 is "Connecting the Big Crowd: Communication Network and Big Data in the Era of Internet of Things and 5G", highlighting the convergence and integration of mobile communications, Internet, and big data processing in realizing diverse applications of Internet of Things.

The technical program of WOCC 2015 will feature four parallel symposia on: Wireless Communications, Optical Communications, Networking, and Big Data.

It is our great honor and pleasure to announce five distinguished plenary and keynote presentations delivered by internationally renowned experts, including Professor Yi-Bing Lin (Deputy Minister, Ministry of Science and Technology, Taiwan), Professor Zhisheng Niu (Tsinghua University, China), Professor Gee-Kung Chang (Georgia Institute of Technology, USA), Dr. Edward Chang (President of HTC Healthcare) and Dr. Yucheun Kevin Jou (Senior VP and CTO, MediaTek). The WOCC 2015 also features a panel discussion on the convergence of IoT and 5G mobile communication networks. We hope that the WOCC 2015 program will stimulate interesting discussions from the participants and inspire new ideas.

Thank you for your involvement and contribution in making the 2015 WOCC a success, and hope that you have a productive and rewarding experience in Taipei.
