IEEE International Mediterranean Conference on Communications and Networking
7–10 September 2021 // Hybrid: In-Person and Virtual Conference


The inaugural IEEE International Mediterranean Conference on Communications and Networking (MeditCom) will take place 7-10 September 2021 in Athens, Greece, and will be held annually in the countries surrounding the Mediterranean Sea.

IEEE MeditCom will bring together visionaries in academia, research labs and industry from all over the world to the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, with programming that will address many of the outstanding challenges that exist in the areas of communications and networking. The conference will solicit research papers on a wide range of research topics, spanning both theoretical and systems research along with vertical technologies. Known as the “cradle of Western civilization”, IEEE MeditCom participants will also have an opportunity to explore this exciting and dynamic region with its rich history and beauty.

IEEE Communications Society aims at engaging local IEEE Sections, ComSoc Chapters, and possibly Sister Societies, from all Mediterranean region, including Spain, France, Monaco, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Albania, Greece, Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, Malta, and Cyprus.
