Volunteer For Conference Participation 

Volunteer committees plan the operations and technical content for many ComSoc conferences held in various locations around the world. Use your experience and knowledge in one of these volunteer leadership roles:

Organization (General Chair, Technical Program (TPC) Chair, Industry Chair)
Proposals for hosting IEEE GLOBECOM and IEEE ICC must be submitted to the GLOBECOM/ICC Management & Strategy (GIMS) Standing Committee several years in advance. Proposals for other conferences and workshops are to be submitted to the individual Steering Committees, and typically require a lead time of 1-2 years.

Program (Symposium Chair, Symposium Session Chair, Technical Program Committee Member, Tutorials Chair, Workshops Chair, Panels Chairs, Keynotes Chair)
These positions are appointed by the General Chair, TPC Chair and/or Industry Chair and help create a well-balanced, high-quality program through a rigorous selection and review process. Inquiries for these positions should be sent to appropriate member(s) of the conference organizing committee.

Operations (Finance Chair, Webmaster, Publicity Chair, Patronage Chair, Publications Chair, Local Arrangements Chair, Exhibits Chair)
These positions are appointed by the General Chair and support the conference in various non-program roles. Inquiries for these positions should be sent to appropriate member(s) of the conference organizing committee.
