Greeting from General Chair

It is my great pleasure to hold the 23rd International Symposium on Wireless Personal Multimedia Communications, WPMC 2020 as a remote conference of WPMC2020 Virtual Edition, because of the global spread of COVID-19.

The WPMC symposium series first commenced in 1998, as a unique international conference dedicated to wireless multimedia communications aiming for global collaboration. The symposium is widely held in Asia, Europe, America, and other regions, and growing year by year.
