It is our great pleasure to invite you to attend the IEEE Global Communications Conference, IEEE GLOBECOM 2009,
30 November - 4 December 2009 in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Hawaii is the central meeting place of the Pacific, if not the world.  The setting of the IEEE Communications Society's premier flagship conference in beautiful Hawaii will provide a unique opportunity to explore the hottest areas of information and communications technology related to industry, academia, government, enterprise and other market segments from around the world. The Honolulu venue will also offer participants - and those accompanying them - an opportunity to explore the paradise of the Hawaiian islands.  In this idyllic setting, you will be able to network with friends, colleagues, customers and vendors from around the world.

The theme of IEEE GLOBECOM 2009, "Riding the Wave to Global Connectivity," is specifically matched to the conference location, setting the conference's focus on leading edge coverage of communications with and across all parts of our planet (and beyond).  IEEE GLOBECOM 2009 features:
