I am pleased to invite you to the First
International Conference on Next-Generation Wireless
Systems (ICNEWS 2006), which will be held in
Dhaka , Bangladesh during 2-4 January, 2006.
ICNEWS 2006 will be a premier international meeting
dedicated to addressing challenging issues in design,
implementation and management of wireless communications,
networking, and mobile computing systems. This
international event on wireless technology, which is first
of its kind in Bangladesh, will bring leading researchers
and practitioners in the broad area of wireless
telecommunications systems across the world. In addition
to technical papers, the conference will feature panel
discussions from experts in academia and industry and
tutorials in state-of-the-art areas. Also, there will be
exhibits which will expose the delegates to the different
wireless products and services available today.
Bangladesh is an attractive market for mobile services
due to its large and highly concentrated population, very
low penetration of telecommunications services, and high
growth in mobile subscribers. With approximately 140
million inhabitants, it ranks as the eighth most populous
country in the world and is among the most densely
populated. To reflect this fact, we chose “wireless for
mass” as the theme of ICNEWS 2006.
The host city Dhaka is a historic city which is known
to be in existence since the 7 th century A.D. This
vibrant metropolitan city today preserves the fabulous
legacy of its past. We invite you to make your plans to
attend ICNEWS 2006, exchange your ideas and rich
experience with other distinguished participants across
the world, and enjoy a large variety of tourist
destinations in this region.
We look forward to welcoming you in Dhaka.
