An active global platform has been created in 1998 to have open discussions on the future wireless personal multimedia commmunications by organizing International Symposium on Wireless Personal Multimedia Communications (WPMC) as an annual event.

The first symposium was held in 1998 at Yokosuka Research Park (YRP), Japan, the second symposium was held in 1999 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and the third symposium was held on November 12-15, 2000 in Bangkok, Thailand.

The fourth symposium will address the open challenges to realize wireless broadband multimedia communication systems.

The objective of the WPMC is to continue and accelerate the existing momentum for establishing a global forum for Wireless Personal Multimedia Communications.
The Symposium shall address the issue of research and development activities which are taking place at an intense and breathtaking pace to create future generation wireless communications to lead and navigate the human race in the 21st Century.Under the theme, “SEAMLESS GLOBAL WIRELESS PERSONAL MULTIMEDIA CONNECTIVITY,” the WPMC will be held in various countries and regions of the world.
