This year’s IEEE Global Communications Conference (GLOBECOM) edition was held from 4 to 8 December 2022 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, known for its breathtaking landscape, laid-back beach culture, and annual carnival. The theme of the event was- “Accelerating the Digital Transformation through Smart Communications,” embracing high-quality technical programs, tutorials, and workshops. In addition, it included industry programs, with keynotes and panels from prominent research, industry and government leaders, business and industry panels, and vendor exhibits.
The members of the Information and Networking Technologies Research and Innovation Group (INTRIG), led by Prof. Christian Rothenberg from the University of Campinas (UNICAMP), attended this event to take part in different offered tutorials-workshops and present their accepted demos.
