IEEE Consumer Communications & Networking Conference


The 5th IEEE Consumer Communications & Networking Conference (CCNC 2008) will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada from 10th to 12th January 2008. CCNC provides a conference centred 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 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.

Proposals are invited for workshops to be affiliated with CCNC 2008 and sponsored by IEEE. These workshops should be more informal and focused than CCNC itself, include sessions that enable interaction among the workshop attendees. The preference is for one-day workshops, but other schedules can also be considered. The workshops themselves will be held on 12th January 2008.

Visit the conference website for further information about CCNC 2008, and last year conference CCNC 2007 website, to find out the workshops which have successfully run in previous years.
