IEEE 9th International Black Sea Conference on Communications and Networking (IEEE BlackSeaCom) May 24 - May 28, 2021 (Virtual Conference)


The IEEE BlackSeaCom series of conferences are held in the countries surrounding the Black Sea. The goal of BlackSeaCom is to bring together visionaries in academia, research labs, and industry from all over the world to the shores of the Black Sea. Here they will address many of the outstanding grand challenges that exist in the areas of communications and networking while having an opportunity to explore this exciting and dynamic region that has a rich history. The next edition of this conference series will be in beautiful Bucharest, Romania on 24-28 May 2021. Due to the situation of the COVID 19 Pandemic, the Conference will be held virtually.
