- Seven workshops announced



Communications and networking technologies have been developing rapidly in
recent years. New topics and ideas are flourishing, such as Cloud
Computing, Green Radio, Internet of Things, Heterogeneous Networking,
and so on. The aim of CHINACOM is to bring together Chinese and
international researchers and practitioners under one roof to exchange
ideas and disseminate scientific results from cutting edge and
emerging research areas in communications and networking. Following
the great success of the past CHINACOM 2006-2011, CHINACOM 2012 will
be held in Kunming, China in August 2012. Prospective authors are
welcome to submit original technical papers for publication in the
