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 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 2015 will feature high quality keynotes, plenary talks, panels and tutorials.
The CCNC 2015 organizing committee invites proposals for tutorials, which are to take
place January 9th and 12th, 2015. The tutorials will be open to all registered conference attendees
without an additional tutorial charge. We seek proposals across a wide range of topics and levels
— ranging from fundamentals to the latest advances in hot topic areas.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
-Mobile Devices, Platforms & Communications
-Wireless, Mobile & Vehicular Networking
-Quality of Service, Reliability & Traffic Engineering
-Peer-to-Peer Networking & Cloud-based Content Distribution
-Social Networking/Media & Crowd Sourcing
-Multimedia Networking, Services & Applications
-Security, Content Protection & DRM
-Energy Efficiency, Green Communications & Computation
-Smart Grid, Electricity Scheduling
-Smart Spaces & Sensor Networks
-eHealth, Ambient Assisted Living
-Telepresence & Tele-robotics
-Intelligent & Emotion-oriented Computing
-3D Imaging, Processing, Communications & Display
-Innovative Multimedia Systems & Consumer Electronics
-Information Integration & Analytics
-Experiences with innovative applications.
Tutorials are half day (3 hours) in length, to be scheduled on January 9 or January 12,
2015. Each tutorial proposal must contain the following:
2. Names and Affiliations of Speakers,
3. Abstract (one or two paragraphs),
4. Intended Audience (one paragraph): Describe the background assumed of tutorial attendees.
Tutorials may range from basic for attendees new to the field to advanced topics for experts,
5. Description: A statement (no more than 3 pages) giving clear motivation/justification for the topic
to be presented at CCNC and a comprehensive outline of the proposed content,
6. Materials: A description (one or two paragraphs) of materials to be provided to attendees on the
conference website – course slides, annotated bibliography, code snippets etc. NOTE: the
materials themselves do not need to be provided in the proposal,
7. Bio-sketches: A half-page bio-sketch of each tutorial presenter must also be included.
All tutorial proposals will first receive peer review. Then, from the pool of proposals deemed
of the highest quality, the chairs will make the final selection of tutorials to present the greatest
variety to conference attendees and to fit the conference schedule.
Speakers for all accepted tutorials will be required to sign a commitment to present at the
conference within 14 days of notification. Tutorial topics and their presenters will be featured on the
CCNC 2015 website before the paper submission deadline.
Conference registration fees will be waived for speakers at accepted tutorials, up to three
speakers for half day tutorials. The complimentary registration cannot be used to cover any papers
accepted in the main program or workshops (that is, having a tutorial does not eliminate the need
to have at least one paid registration for each paper at CCNC 2015). Materials for the tutorial must
be emailed at least 14 days before the presentation date.
Tutorial proposals must be in PDF format and submitted via email to the Tutorial Chair,
Berk Canberk, firstname.lastname@example.org. Any questions should also be addressed to the Tutorial Chair.
