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
