The conference is sponsored by the IEEE Communication Society and the Dallas IEEE Section. The Dallas area is a major center for the global telecommunications industry and serves as home to many of the largest corporations and also a large number of smaller firms in this industry.
Dallas has a rich history of hosting previous ComSoc meetings including Globecom '89 and ICC '96. These meetings were some of the most successful for ComSoc and we look forward again to having an outstanding meeting in 2004.

The theme of Globecom 2004 "Emerging Technologies Applications and Services" characterizes the continuing pervasiveness of telecommunications in all aspects of global society, industry, and government.
