Conference Venue Map


Many advance technologies in the communication field, start to put the intelligences in many segments and subsystems of a communication system. Novel methodologies and approaches are introduced to achieve higher level of communication quality. Nevertheless, human life is still a very important aspect to be considered in each development of technologies, including communication technology. Today, we have witnessed the rise of broad smart digital technologies on the devices, sensors, networks, controls and not to mentions millions of applications. Those smart technologies spuns from computing, broadcasting and media, platforms, applications and contents, advertising and social media. Accordingly, under the theme of “Smart Communications to Enhance the Quality of Life”, APCC 2013 will provide opportunity for us to discuss this issue.
