Invitation From The General Chair

It is a great pleasure to invite you to attend the 21st Annual IEEE International Symposium on Personal, Indoor and Mobile Radio Communications (PIMRC 2010), which will be held in Istanbul, Turkey, on 26 - 29 September 2010. The Executive Committee gathering a large number of local and international volunteers is working to make this conference a great success and most enjoyable.


The host city, Istanbul, has a unique geographical location: Indeed, Istanbul is the only city in the world that is located on two continents, with bridges over the Bosphorus connecting Europe and Asia. The former capital of three successive empires - Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman - Istanbul honors and preserves the fabulous legacy of its past, while looking forward to its modern future. Today’s Istanbul is a vibrant metropolitan city of more than 10 million citizens with a wide spectrum of economic, industrial and cultural activities, which makes it an ideal setting for PIMRC 2010.


The conference committee has set up a high-quality technical program and an exciting social program that will allow you to have a memorable stay in this magnificent city, which enchants millions of visitors each year. I invite you to mark this event in your calendar and to make your plans for taking part in the program.


On behalf of the Executive Committee, I look forward to welcoming you in Istanbul!
