The Wireless Telecommunications Symposium brings together industry professionals and academics from companies, governmental agencies, and universities around the world to exchange information on advances in mobile communications and wireless networking technology, business, policy, applications and security. Past WTS participants have included Dr. Vinton Cerf, Dr. Robert Kahn, and Dr. Leonard Kleinrock, Internet pioneers; Martin Cooper, “Father of the Cell Phone”; Dr. Irwin Jacobs, Co-Founder and Former CEO of QUALCOMM; and Mike Lazaridis, Founder and former Vice-Chairman, Blackberry.

The theme for WTS 2018 will be "Global Wireless Communications: Theory and Practice”. Planned highlights of WTS 2018 include executive presentations and keynote addresses; presentations of accepted academic and practitioner research papers; panel discussions; tutorials and workshops; a poster paper session; and a doctoral students’ session. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases. The proceedings also will be distributed at the Symposium via a CD. Awards will be given for the most outstanding paper presented and best graduate and undergraduate student papers presented. Some selected high-quality papers from WTS 2018 will be considered for publication in the international journal Annals of Telecommunications published by Springer, pending their successful extension and an expedited review process.
