Message from the EiC

Welcome to the May 2019 issue of VTS Mobile World – your IEEE Vehicular Technology Society newsletter. Kicking off this issue is our Society President, with an outline of VTS involvement in 5G and Future Networks.

Among the articles this month, we feature the VTS Distinguished Lecturers Program, VTS Chapters Committee, and the newly created Ad Hoc Committee on Deep Learning for Wireless Communications with reports on their respective portfolios and recent activities.

I look forward to hearing from you in on how we can better serve all VTS members.   I can be reached at a.jamalipour@ieee.org.  Read More...
