The Wireless and Optical Communication Conference (WOCC) is a major annual event for telecommunications and optical professionals in the U.S. and the Asia-Pacific regions in the past two decades. The WOCC 2015 provides an excellent forum for presenting new research results, emerging technologies, industrial advancements, and innovative research ideas among academic and industrial professionals. 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 paper submission can be conducted via We invite submissions in the following symposia.
