It is our pleasure to offer you several outstanding patronage opportunities together with promotional business development benefits at IEEE CQR 2016 which will be held May 9-12, 2016 at the Skamania Lodge in Stevenson, WA.  Skamania Lodge is located in the center of the Columbia River Gorge – a scenic and spectacular Natural Recreation Area in the Pacific Northwest.

IEEE CQR, a premier workshop of the IEEE Communications Society, has been held annually since 1986. The IEEE Communications Society has over 50,000 members worldwide. 

In 2016, the IEEE CQR Workshop is expected to have: 
  • 80 researchers, scientists, engineers, and business people
  • 60 presentations and panel discussions on communications quality and reliability
  • 10 technical paper presentations
This year’s content focus will be discussions of Network Function Virtualization / Software Defined Networks, Internet of Things, and Customer Quality of Experience on adjacent days.  Also, we will have three panel discussions, two insightful keynote speeches, and social/professional networking events.

At IEEE CQR 2016, your company can be acknowledged as a supporter of this important international event which drives forward quality and reliability for communications and networking. Your patronage can advance your company's recognition and reputation among communications professionals - engineers, managers, innovators, designers, developers, educators, and industry leaders, including those from the regulatory and policy arena.
