The 17th International Symposium on Wireless Personal Multimedia Communications (WPMC'2014) will be held at the Menzies Hotel, Sydney, Australia from the 7th to the 10th of September 2014 under the technical sponsorship of the IEEE Communications Society. The WPMC symposia series were inaugurated in 1998, as a global platform which aims at enabling collaboration in the field of wireless information. Held in Asia, Europe and America, WPMC has established itself as a unique global conference dedicated to wireless multimedia convergence. Continuing the series, the 17th International Symposium on Wireless Personal Multimedia Communications will be held for the first time in Australia. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.

The theme of this year’s conference is “Orchestrating Wireless Personal Multimedia Communications”. In addition to high-quality technical sessions, the symposium will feature exciting keynotes, tutorials and workshops. It will also offer a fantastic social program. WPMC'2014 is technically sponsored by IEEE ComSoc. All accepted and presented papers in technical sessions and workshops will be published in the conference proceedings and in IEEE Xplore.
