18th IEEE Consumer Communications & Networking Conference (CCNC)

Las Vegas, January 9-12, 2021

(Held in conjunction with the International Consumer Electronics Show - CES)



IEEE CCNC 2021 will run as a virtual conference on 9-12 January 2021.


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.

IEEE CCNC was organized specifically to help the consumer electronics
industry drive the advancement of the numerous wireless and wireline
communications technologies that will one day provide on-demand access to
both entertainment and information anytime, anywhere, regardless of time or
location. This includes a detailed analysis of nearly every technological
area ranging from cognitive and peer-to-peer networking to the designer
services and tools used to ensure ease-of-use, security and stunning

IEEE CCNC 2021 is proud to announce two distinguished keynote speakers:
Prof. Edward Knightly, Sheafor-Lindsay Professor of Electrical and Computer
Engineering and Computer Science at Rice University, and Dr. Jim Lansford,
Director, Technical Standards at Qualcomm. The conference will present the
latest developments and technical solutions in the areas of large scale
experimentation, home/consumer networking, efficient wireless spectrum use,
enabling technologies, and novel applications and services.The conference
will include a peer-reviewed program of technical sessions, special
sessions, industry track sessions, tutorials, and demonstration sessions.

Workshops provide a lively and interactive forum for the discussion within
areas of special interest pertinent to consumer communications and
networking. Workshops aim at examining an area in a less formal, open
environment for the free exchange of views, and possibly in a more focused
way than in the main track of the conference itself. Workshop proposals are
welcomed in all areas of consumer communications and networking.

Examples comprise (alternative and additional topics are highly welcome!):

• Wireless Systems (WiFi 6, 5G and beyond)

• Deep Learning / Artificial Intelligence in Communications & Networking

• Energy-aware Consumer Networks / Green Radio

• Consumer Networks as Enabler for IoT

• Cyber-Physical Systems based on Consumer Networking

• Ultra-High Data-Rate and Low Latency Applications (AR/VR/xR)

• Multiple-Drone- / UAV-Applications

• Networking Architectures (Cloudlet and Edge Computing)

• mmWave / THz Ultra High Frequency Communication

• High Mobility in Consumer Communication and Networking

CCNC workshops will be organized on the first and last day of the
conference (January 9th & 12th).
