We apologize if you receive multiple copies of this email.

The 30th International Conference on Computer Communications and Networks
(ICCCN’2021) will be held in Athens, Greece, July 19 - 22, 2021. 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.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

·        *5G & Beyond*

·        *Edge/Fog Computing*

(CFP) after receiving the approval notification *(the ICCCN 2021 Steering
Committee and the Workshop General Chair, Prof. Kewei Sha must approve the
format and contents of each workshop’s CFP, before it is used for
advertisement, per our policy).* Papers submitted to each workshop should
