Intensive Learning and Networking

The IEEE ComSoc Summer School is designed to help kick-start the careers of new professionals, Ph.D. candidates, and researchers in wireless communications. The 5th Edition will be held on 16th-19th July 2019 at National Instruments Corporation, Austin, Texas. It consists of lectures by world leading professors, industry leaders and executives. The event features a highly interactive classroom environment with an intense focus on learning the cutting-edge trends in communications technology, as well as laboratory tours, demonstrations, hands-on workshops, poster presentations and networking activities.

To further the education of IEEE ComSoc’s young professionals, Ph.D. students, and recent graduates studying in the field of communications technology, we provide educational opportunities free of cost through IEEE ComSoc’s Summer School program. Seats on the summer school are limited and availability runs out fast.

This year’s program will focus on applications in specific industries including commercial cellular wireless service, automotive V2x and autonomy, and defence funded research. Workshops will feature Massive MIMO and mmWave technologies to create real-world wireless testbeds using Software Defined Radio (SDR) and Software Defined Networking (SDN) techniques. The deadline for applications is 30 April 2019.
