Ever since I first visited the Fraunhofer FOKUS institute almost exactly two years ago, I've remained in contact with the researchers there as they are working on interesting research projects in the wireless core network and IMS domain. Next month, on the 14th and 15th of October, they are hosting a follow up to their IMS conferences in the previous years called "Future Seamless Communication" or FUSECO for short. They've got a long list of interesting topics and speakers for their conference both from the industry and academia, something I always enjoy as both sides can learn a lot from each other. If you are interested in wireless core network topics it's definitely a conference not to be missed. Here's the link for a closer look. Enjoy!
