IEEE Consumer Communications & Networking Conference



Technical Paper Submission

IEEE Consumer Communications and Networking Conference, sponsored by 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. CCNC 2011 will present the latest developments and technical solutions in the areas of wireless, multimedia, and consumer networking, enabling technologies (such as middleware), and novel applications and services. The conference will include a peer-reviewed program of technical sessions, special sessions, business application sessions, tutorials, and demonstration sessions. Authors are invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal. Authors should submit a five-page technical paper manuscript in double-column IEEE format including authors' names and affiliations, and a short abstract through  
EDAS.  Only electronic submission will be accepted.
