The IEEE Communications Society will hold its 2010 flagship conference International Communications Conference (ICC2010) in Cape Town, South Africa. This will be the first time that ICC has been held in Africa and with Cape Town being voted one of the most beautiful cities in the World, this promises to to be an exceptional conference. Conference participants will have a wide range of exciting options to add to their conference tour: hikes up the famous Table Mountain; whale watching; tours of the Cape Winelands, Robben Island and even CapePoint where two oceans meet. The FIFA World Cup Soccer tournament, held all around South Africa starts just after the conference ends.

Africa is developing rapidly and the conference theme "Communications: Accelerating Growth and Development" aims to focus on the role that Communications is playing in this development.

The ICC 2010 technical programme will offer eleven different symposia, workshops, tutorials, a business forum, a design and developers forum and some top international speakers in the plenary sessions.

Technical papers will be presented in the following major topics:

  1. General Symposium on Selected Areas in Communications (The General Symposium will only accept papers on topics not covered by other symposia listed below)
  2. Communication Theory Symposium
  3. Signal Processing for Communications Symposium
