IEEE International Symposium on Personal, Indoor and Mobile Radio Communications
13–16 September 2021 // Virtual Conference // By 6G Flagship

Welcome to PIMRC2021

Welcome to the 2021 IEEE International Symposium on Personal, Indoor and Mobile Radio Communications (IEEE PIMRC 2021) which brings together global experts to the esteemed scientific and technical forum dedicated to diverse facets of wireless communications!  

For this edition, our 6G Flagship program team at the University of Oulu, Finland brings a fresh 6G flavor. As the global vision towards sustainable 6G is beginning to take shape, the event covers fundamental theory as well as experimental networks, services, applications and business.  

With the continuing uncertainty due to COVID-19, we are planning IEEE PIMRC 2021 as a virtual event from the start. We hope to be able to interact with a large number of speakers and attendees. We are fully committed to creating a rewarding and memorable virtual conference experience.

Our virtual event model allows a variety of engaging sessions from plenaries, panels and workshops to regular and special sessions introducing the latest research results. As we are now ready to receive proposals for various sessions, including tutorials, we are eager to discover your bold new research openings and topics that lead to voluminous discussions online.   

With these thoughts, we hope to receive your inputs for a high-quality program! Together, we can make IEEE PIMRC 2021 a valuable discussion forum for us all!
