IEEE Global Communications Conference
7–11 December 2021 // Madrid, Spain // Hybrid: In-Person and Virtual Conference
Connecting Cultures around the Globe


Virtual Program:

All papers of the channel coding workshop are scheduled on Dec. 7th, in Madrid Time. Even though there are dates/times associated with the sessions, the virtual attendees can view the video presentation on demand at any time because the attendees are from all over the world.

Please find the virtual platform link below:

It’s likely that there might be some attendees who watch the presentations at the time that they are scheduled. As such, the authors should try their best to be in the session in case there are live questions on your presentations. If authors are connected online at that time, they may interact with the audience via chat or video conference tools that are provided in the conference virtual platform. This is not required, it is an option for the authors who would like to interact with attendees.

If the authors are not able to join the session when it is scheduled, then they will be notified via email if there are questions on your video presentation. They can respond to the questions through the virtual conference platform.

PLEASE NOTE: The video presentations are available for on demand access until December 30.
