ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
Focused on communication and networking for consumer applications and services designed for industry leaders and practitioners within the communications engineering design, research, development, sales and marketing principles, CCNC represents a unique opportunity through which consumer electronic manufacturers (including those responsible for selling consumer devices, products, and services) join with the communications/networking manufacturers and service providers. This union will significantly enhance the ability of those individuals providing the communications and network infrastructure to better understand the needs, requirements and trends of consumer electronic applications and services (and vice versa).
CCNC 2008 will focus on today's growing population of connected individuals and the developing strong market for integrated voice, video and computer communications that can inter-work with entertainment devices, home security/surveillance systems, games, and home appliances, all with transparent functionality to the mobile environment. Consumer communications is gaining increasing attention from industry spawning a range of dramatically different solutions including wireless, wire and power line networked communications environments, each with their own strength and special challenges to overcome. This is the leading edge of possibilities that can't even be imagined today for the home and beyond.
CCNC 2008 will present the latest approaches and technical solutions in the area of consumer networking, multimedia networking, enabling technologies such as middleware and multimedia, and novel applications and services. The conference will include a peer-reviewed program of technical sessions, business application sessions, tutorials, and demonstration sessions.
CCNC 2008 provides a compelling forum for formal discussion and socialization of many of these research challenges with seasoned practitioners and colleagues from throughout the industry.
