pimrc history

The PIMRC developed out of a workshop held in 1989 on Mobile Communications, at a time when mobile technology was on the cusp of transforming the entire communications industry.

The event, with less than 100 delegates was organized by Prof Aghvami of King's College London and supported by the local IEEE Communication Society Chapter.

The PIMRC now attracts in excess of 700 delegates to its international think-tank gatherings and has been held in countries including Canada, Turkey, Japan, France, Greece, Finland and the US.

The first PIMRC, as an international symposium, also took place in King's College, with joint sponsorship of the local IEEE Communication Society Chapter and close cooperation with BT laboratories. BT Labs' director Dr Rowbotham, was the honorary chairman, Prof Aghvami was the organizer and the TPC chair while Dr Kato and Prof Pahlavan were the area coordinators in Far East and North America, respectively.

THE PIMIRC's charter is to educate and engage with the industry at the highest levels and to he widest reach on research developments and the future directions of the industry.
