EuCNC 2020 is the 29th edition of a successful series of a technical conference in the field of telecommunications, sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) and the European Association for Signal Processing (EURASIP), and supported by the European Commission. The conference focuses on various aspects of 5G communications systems and networks, including cloud and virtualisation solutions, management technologies, and vertical application areas, and looking already into Beyond 5G matters. It targets to bring together researchers from all over the world to present the latest research results, and it is one of the main venues for demonstrating the results of research projects, especially from R&D programmes co-financed by the European Commission.
The conference attracts more than 600 delegates worldwide (750 in the last edition), from around 50 countries in all world regions, and 40 exhibitors (70 in the last edition), hence, making this event one of the most prominent ones in the field. EuCNC is attended by an almost balanced audience between industry (encompassing executives, directors, department heads, project managers, researchers and practicing engineers) and academia (professors, researchers, post-docs and Ph.D. students), but including also officials from the European Commission, and European countries regulators and governments.
By exhibiting at this event, you have the opportunity to maximise gains by enjoying prominent exposure and visibility of your institution or company towards a large yet targeted audience and draw attention of key players in the field from all around the world.

Damage caused by exhibitors who disregard these rules will be paid for by the exhibitor.
