The IEEE Connecting the Unconnected Summit (IEEE CTUS) is a major event of the IEEE Future Networks Technical Community (FNTC), a multiple Society community aggregating the wide expertise inherent to the connectivity domain.

The event will provide options for remote registration and viewing for those who cannot travel, our goal is to convene as many in-person participants as possible to encourage networking, inspiration and knowledge sharing in a way that only physical events can.

The speaker and attendee list will feature innovators, regulators, multinational companies, standards-setting bodies, and nonprofits dedicated to Internet connectivity and inclusion. As with prior versions of the event, attendees can expect a robust program of keynotes, invited talks, panels, and presentations from winners of the IEEE Connecting the Unconnected Challenge.

We are now seeking proposals from interested institutions and industries for hosting this event in 2024.

Proposals should be sent to the Co-Chairs of the IEEE CTU Committee, Ashutosh Dutta, [email protected], Sudhir Dixit, [email protected], and copy Craig Polk, [email protected], by March 1, 2024, detailing in the following files
