Communications and networking technologies are developing rapidly in recent years. New topics and ideas are flourishing, such as Cloud Computing, Green Radio, Internet of Things, Heterogeneous Networking, and so on. The aim of CHINACOM is to bring together Chinese and international researchers and practitioners under one roof to exchange ideas and disseminate scientific results from cutting edge and emerging research areas in communications and networking. Following the great success of the past CHINACOM2006-2011, CHINACOM2012 will be held in Kunming, China in August 2012.
