General Call for Workshops

IEEE Consumer Communications and Networking Conference (CCNC), sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society, is a major annual international conference. Taking advantage of its co-location with the International CES (the world's largest tradeshow on consumer technology), CCNC is organized with the objective of bringing together researchers, developers, and practitioners from academia and industry working in all areas of consumer technologies. CCNC 2014 will feature high quality keynotes, plenary talks, panels, and tutorials.

The CCNC 2014 Organization Committee invites members of the research, development, and practitioner communities to submit workshop proposals. Workshops provide a forum for people to discuss areas of special interest pertinent to consumer communications and networking with like-minded researchers and practitioners. Workshops aim at examining an area in a less formal, more open environment for the free exchange of views, and possibly in a more focused way than in the main track of the conference itself.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Communications and Signal processing for modern mobile devices.
* Social Networking, CrowdSourcing and Participatory Sensing
* Wearable Augmented Reality
* Peer-to-Peer and Cloud-based Networking
* Multimedia Networking, Services, & Applications
* Smart Spaces & Sensor Networks
* 3D printing
* Personal Robotics
* Security, Content Protection & DRM
* Vehicular Networks
* Green Communications & Computation
* eHealth, Ambient Assisted Living
* Home Energy Management
* Telepresence & Telerobotics
* Intelligent & Emotion-oriented Computing
* 3D Imaging, Processing, Communications & Display
* Innovative Multimedia Systems & Consumer Electronics
* Information Integration & Data Analytics
* Case studies of application deployments
* Emerging Standardization Topics in Consumer Communications.

CCNC workshops will be organized on the first and last day of the conference (Jan 11 and Jan 14).
