With recognition of the importance of wireless technologies for regional sustainable development, the 6th Global Wireless Summit (GWS -2018) was held in collaboration with the 21st International Symposium on Wireless Personal Multimedia Communications (WPMC- 2018) at Mae Fah Luang University, Chiang Rai, Thailand from 25 - 28 November 2018.
This year, both conferences were conducted, as a part of MFU’s 20th year anniversary celebration, under the theme “Body and Mind Integration through Information and Communication Technology”. The main purpose of the event was to offer a stage for researchers, designers, developers, engineers and technologists to exchange ideas and discuss development in wireless communication technology and related areas. The conference was supported by CTIF Global Capsule (CGC), Yokosuka Research Park (YRP), the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology, Japan (NICT) and Mae Fah Luang University (MFU).
In the conference, there was a series of lectures from keynote speakers from Finland, India, Japan, Thailand and the United States of America. Also, there were tutorial sessions, technical sessions and discussions for participants to explore business models, devices, innovations, trends and future challenges towards wireless communication technologies.
The WPMC symposium is a global platform which aims at enabling collaboration in the field of wireless information while the GWS is the world's largest annual international conference for wireless techno-business modelling.
Altogether, both WPMC and GWS 2018 successfully served as a bridge connecting all sectors to share and develop the newest wireless technologies, new ways of communicating and new business models through cross-disciplinary research and collaboration. All of innovative technologies will indeed enhance the development and offer sustainable solutions for wireless technologies in the future.
