cmoset.comET Conference

2012 cmoset.comET Conference

Hyatt Regency Hotel

Vancouver, BC, Canada

The cmoset.comes conference is a research and business event for those who want to discuss and find out about new exciting high tech opportunities. The format of the talks resembles in-depth tutorials describing state-of-the-art technology and future research directions rather than presenting specific research results or commercial products. The 8th annual meeting will be held downtown Vancouver with numerous opportunities for personal exploration of surrounding tourist attractions.

No formal proceedings will be printed, but PDF copies of all presentation material will be made available to attendees. Selected and expanded conference talks are edited as books with the following titles already published:

  • Wireless Technologies: Circuits, Systems, and Devices, CRC Press, 2007
  • Circuits at the NanoScale: Communications, Imaging, and Sensing, CRC Press 2008
  • Network Infrastructure and Architecture, Wiley 2008
