Greeting from General Chair of WPMC2020

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.

At this symposium, I hope that all participants over the Internet enjoy technical presentations as well as related discussions and experiences in a new style of a virtual conference. The symposium will surely allow participants to expand their field of view and experiences.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Honorary Chair of WPMC 2020 Virtual Edition, Prof. Hirofumi Makino, President of Okayama University, and all distinguished committee members and relevant staff of this symposium.
