CALL FOR INDUSTRY PAPERS
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 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. The industry-oriented part of the program will be organized on Friday 10 and Saturday 11 January, and will consist of a coherent set of tutorials, demonstrations, panel sessions, and industry talks.
Industry talks are presentations given by representatives of the consumer communications and networking industry with the aim to inform the CCNC audience (highly qualified researchers, engineers, and developers) about the newest developments in the field from the view of the industry, and to collect comments from the audience for the benefit of the presenting company. Although the talks must contain enough technical content to appeal to the CCNC community and confirm to the requirements of scientific rigor, novelty, and objectiveness, they can focus on specific industry issues and products. The content of the talks must address one or more of the following challenges in the field of consumer communications and networking:
* Wireless Communications
* Smart Spaces and Wireless Networks
* Multimedia & Entertainment Networking and Services
* Peer-to-Peer Networking and Cloud-based Content Distribution
* Emerging and Innovative Consumer Technologies and Applications
* Security, Privacy and Content Protection
* Mobile Device, Platform and Communication
* Social Networking
* Networked Games
* Internet of Things
* Software-Defined Networks
* Green Computing and Communications
* Information Centric Networks and Content Centric Networks
* Post-IP and Future Generation Networks
* Industry-specific networking deployments and applications
* Applications of recent research advances to real-world problems
Submissions should be uploaded at http://edas.info/newPaper.php?c=17831&track=66555 before November 15th, 2014. Papers should have no more than 5 pages at the IEEE conference format (see CCNC authors submission page for LaTex and MS Word templates). Rules against double submission and plagiarism apply to Industry Paper. Contact the industry track chair if you have any questions. Papers will be reviewed by a program committee and will receive 3 reviews each.
