About the Program

This ComSoc School Series event will be focus on next generation cloud communications. Cloud communications empower nearly every aspect of engineering and technology. The modern generation of communication technology is increasingly relying on the use of cloud communication to improve performance metrics like spectral efficiency, reliability, and less processing time. Cloud communications is a telecommunications engineering field university students should be familiar with and excited about. This ComSoc School Series event will bring together scholars, local professionals, Distinguished Lectures (DLs), and students to learn, connect, and get inspired about the latest innovations in cloud communications. In this program, students will hear lectures from industry leaders in cloud communications, explore leading edge concepts, be exposed to the latest innovations in the industry, and will have the opportunity to network with professionals and peers in the field. In addition, hands-on tutorials may be incorporated into the program for students to have an interactive learning experience.

The IEEE ComSoc School Series Atlanta Event will be an exemplary opportunity for students to meet industry professionals and garner technical knowledge necessary to excel in this industry. Students will also be able to attend career talks, stop by sponsor tables, and take part in a resume review workshop.
