Don’t Miss the 11th Annual
IEEE Consumer Communications & Networking Conference

(Held in conjunction with the 2014 International CES January 7-10, 2014)
January 10-13, 2014
Las Vegas, Nevada USA

General Co-Chairs

Technical Program Chair
Christian Becker
University of Mannheim, Germany

The IEEE Consumer Communications and Networking Conference, sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society, is a major annual international conference organized with the objective of bringing together researchers, developers, and practitioners from academia and industry working in all areas of consumer communications and networking.

IEEE CCNC 2014 will have separate research sessions and industry sessions. The research sessions will present the latest developments and technical solutions in the areas of home networking, consumer networking, mobile networking, social networking, enabling technologies (such as middleware), and novel applications and services. The industry sessions will be the forum for high quality presentations on innovative commercial software, systems, and services for all facets of information and communication technology, such as innovative multimedia systems, performance/behavior observed in the real world, cloud computing, crowdsourcing, social media, information integration and analytics. We also encourage submissions on design, usability, and performance of innovative applications and systems. The industry program discourages submissions that do not relate to commercial software/hardware or industrial-strength software/hardware/system intended for wide use. Papers in both sessions will be peer-reviewed for the inclusion in the event.
