About

The Global Communications Newsletter (GCN) appears monthly within IEEE Communications Magazine.

It provides an excellent opportunity to present news and events related to communications around the world, as well as activities carried out by IEEE Communications Society chapters in greater detail.

In general, articles published in the GCN are not technical papers or even technical surveys. Rather, they are short articles informing the IEEE ComSoc community about various activities being carried out and organized in the four corners of the world by the many volunteers who are the true engine of the IEEE ComSoc. Also, major news from the regional telecommunications industry, operators, and academia may be of great interest to our global community.

The relevance, timeliness, and interest of reports published in our Newsletter depend on your cooperation. The willingness of everyone to contribute timely and informative reports is essential to ensure the success of our Newsletter. We look forward to receiving your submissions.

Chapter Chairs who would like to post to UPDATES FROM OUR CHAPTERS should create an account at http://gcn.comsoc.org/user/register
