*Call for Workshop Proposals:*

The 29th International Conference on Computer Communications and Networks
(ICCCN) will be held in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA August 3-6, 2020. ICCCN
workshops are exciting forums to present, discuss, and formulate
specialized topics and emerging hot research topics (new areas, new
problems or new methods). The topic of the proposed workshop should offer a
perspective distinct from and complementary to the research themes of the
main conference. Workshops for presenting papers from industry and papers
on design and implementations of systems and services are welcome. As the
ICCCN is a premier international conference in the field, a workshop at the
conference will generate high visibility. Accepted and registered (and
presented by one of authors) workshop papers will be published and included
in the conference proceedings.

We invite you to submit workshop proposals on any topic related to the
broad set of research and application areas covered by the ICCCN
conference. We welcome workshops on topics in network research, practice,
and education. The workshop format itself should favor interaction among
participants and community building. We welcome returning workshops.
