The IEEE Washington Section calendar pulls content from the Washington Section’s vTools Events feed, the Northern Virginia Section’s vTools Events feed, and the Baltimore Section’s vTools Events feed, since there is significant overlap between the two sections’ members. (vTools Events is the IEEE-operated database that contains all IEEE events globally. To be useful, it requires filtering at the section level.)

Registration for events is handled by vTools. To register for an event using vTools, click the “Register Today” link at the bottom of an event description on this site.

Co-sponsored by: Northern Virginia Chapter of Communications Society

This one-day session provides an opportunity for Young Professionals or knowledge workers to better understand the 5G mobility ecosystem. 5G may be described as a network of networks with applications and services that may transform several adjacent industries. This session is designed to give attendees the opportunity to learn about 5G and Beyond. Prior knowledge of the mobility ecosystem is not required. 

The IEEE Future Networks Education Working Group (WG) provides recurring winter and summer sessions where speakers from industry, government, or academia discuss diverse topics related to technology, business, governance, regulatory, etc. The intent is to provide the attendees with an appreciation of the technologies, issues and the key benefits. Collaboration and the exchange of ideas from different perspectives are strongly encouraged.
