IEEE ICC 2012 Industry Forums Program

The Industry Forums are designed to deliver broad interest in telecommunication industry’s current practiced technology, major technology implementations, complex IT business systems, regulatory impact assessments, economic models, and engineering methods used by industry practitioners.

The Industry Forums are focused on three technology pillars with a total of 18 unique forum sessions planned. The duration of each of the forums is 105 minutes with a moderator and 3-6 speakers of with industry expertise in the featured topical area. After all the speakers have presented, a Q&A discussion will follow among the speakers and the audiences.

Wednesday, June 13 from 16:15 to 18:00

As the positive responses to global climate warming, the research and development of Green Communications and Computing have attracted extensive involvements from both industry and academia. The Technical Subcommittee on Green Communications and Computing (TSCGCC), the IEEE Communications Society, has been newly established as the dedicated Technical Subcommittee in this specific emerging research area ( The urgent needs and challenges of energy-sustainable, resource-saving, and environment-friendly green communications and computing technologies are introduced by simultaneously increasing trends of energy costs and communications bandwidths impacting ecological and economic activities around the world. Significant energy consumption reduction in the information & communications applications may be achieved through the innovative use of new architectures, protocols, and algorithms, which may fundamentally change concepts, structure, and designs of conventional communication and computing systems. Research in energy-efficient green communications and computing is inter-disciplinary in nature, since the motivation is to obtain energy efficiency from various areas and  levels of communication infrastructures and systems.

This panel will discuss various aspects of above mentioned issues. The panel speakers are several leading experts in the promising, important, and exciting topics on green communications and computing, who will present and discuss a number of paradigm-shifting technical approaches can be expected. This panel may bring the broad and in-depth vision of the emerging areas to the audiences in both industrial and academic perspectives.

As one of the leading enthusiastic efforts in promoting the research and development of green communications and computing, we definitely feel that this panel will be both informative and entertaining the ICC 2012 audiences.
