THE AIM of CHINACOM is to bring together Chinese and International players in networking and communications under one roof, building a showcase in communications and networking research in China.
China’s information technology industry and research have been developing at an enormous pace in the last 20 years. Currently China has the largest wireless mobile and the second largest Internet subscriber population in the world. By the end of June 2005, the mobile phone users have exceeded 350 million, and Internet users have exceeded 100 million (half of them are broadband service subscribers). The total sale of optical cables & fibers reached 15,000,000 kilometers in 2004, with the sale of the whole optical communication facility market reaching 1.5 billion USD. Furthermore, business/market factors in this area in China are unique since they are Government driven and mixed with culture, technology, and market forces.
CHINACOM is being positioned as the premier international annual conference for the presentation of original and fundamental advances in the field of Communications, Networks, and Internet Applications. The conference will consist of Technical Symposia, and Workshops. The Technical Symposia will describe significant research in all areas defined below; while the Workshops will focus on development, applications and related business issues.
All accepted papers will be made available in IEEE Xplore, and then be indexed by Engineering Information (EI).
